CBCT Surgical Guidance – what is the difference between Dynamic Surgical Guidance and Static Guides?
CBCT-based static guides use a physical guide that is intended to guide the movement of the drill via metal “sleeves” incorporated into the stent, restricting the movement of the drill during the implant surgery. In comparison, Dynamic Surgical Guidance systems display the drill position in relation to the patient CT scan in real-time during surgery, enabling accurate free-hand surgery. The planning time required and the soft-tissue management techniques with Dynamic Surgical Guidance are similar to free-hand surgery planned with CBCT data today.
The Inliant Clinical system preserves all of the benefits of free-hand surgery, while displaying the drill position over patient CT during surgery – providing sub-millimeter accuracy resulting in accurate free-hand surgery. Unlike any other Dynamic Surgical Guidance system, Inliant Clinical does not require an additional cart in the operatory and does not attach anything to the Handpiece and therefore, completely preserves ergonomics and tactile feedback.
Yes, the Inliant Clinical technology enables accurate free-hand surgery. There is no restrictive static guide and nothing is attached to the handpiece, so the ergonomics and tactile feedback of free-hand surgery is completely preserved.
No. Inliant Clinical allows the clinician to utilize any flap design; using the same soft-tissue management techniques available in free-hand surgery.
No. We feel strongly that the Handpiece ergonomics and tactile feedback must not be compromised. Therefore, Inliant Clinical was designed so that nothing is attached to the handpiece. The Inliant Clinical optical markers are laser etched onto the Handpiece during manufacturing therefore, the ergonomics and tactile feedback are unchanged. Handpieces are available from leading handpiece manufacturers.
No. the Inliant Clinical system is simply attached to the existing operatory dental light. The software seamlessly integrates into the operatory, using the existing computer and screens.
No. One of the chief goals of the company is to NOT interrupt the surgery and to NOT add chair time. Therefore we designed Inliant Clinical to be calibration free. There is no calibration required when using Inliant Clinical.
Absolutely, Inliant Clinical cameras are simply attached to the existing operatory dental light. No cart is required, so the system does not take any extra room, or clutter the operatory. Our pricing includes options for multi-operatory installations.
No renovation to the operatory is required. Installation requires several hours and will be followed by training. We will coordinate the installation so that there will be minimal interruption to the clinic schedule.
No. Inliant’s software integrates the existing drilling sequence protocol into the user interface. For example, once the clinician has chosen his/her preferred brand of implant, the software will simply follow the standard drill sequence prescribed by the implant manufacturer.
Absolutely, the software integrates the surgical protocols into the user interface and already includes most dental implant brands. If you are using a brand that hasn’t already been included, we will add it free of charge.
The planning time with Inliant Clinical is similar to planning a free-hand surgery with CBCT.
We expect Inliant Clinical to reduce chair time. The system enables clinicians to see the drill position in real time during surgery. No calibration is required with our patented motion tracking technology. Surgery is truly uninterrupted, avoiding delays due to calibrations and interim radiographs.
Every Inliant Clinical includes installation, training and comprehensive one year warranty, which covers all software licenses and updates.
