2ND X-NAV CASE OF THE YEAR
For clarification, we have now used x-nav on nearly 200 cases. As a rural general dentist this case may seem a bit " out over my skies " but I think it illustrates the wonderful techniques and training I get with Dental XP. This patient was seen post extraction for an implant in area 30. The bone graft was completed using Istvan Urban's "sausage graft" technique. Bone scraper was used to achieve a 50/50 mix of autogenous bone with bio-oss. This was then mixed wit PRGF and a collagen barrier tightly tacked into place. I waited 5 months to place the implant. I have 8mm directly above the nerve but with the width of bone I achieved I elected to place the implant on a slight angle. The restoring dentist will be able to place a screw retained implant for the patient. X-NAV navigated approach was use to allow for an 8mm implant 1.5 mm from the nerve.
