Computer Guided Implant Surgery
People are sometimes surprised to learn that many dentists in Guatemala use more advanced technology for dental implants than your average dentist in the USA. This is because dental implants are so expensive in the US that fewer procedures are done and thus there is less incentive to invest in state-of-the-art technology.
When it comes to replacing missing or lost teeth, computer guided dental implants are by far the best dental solution. They are strong, resistant, natural looking, and they require minimum maintenance. Dental implants make you feel like you never lost your teeth to begin with!

Dental implants require a high degree of accuracy in order to work properly. They have to be perfectly aligned with the teeth around and above. Failure in the alignment of an implant might cause improper bites, extra pressure on the teeth above, problems with chewing, etc.
That’s why many dentists in Guatemala have decided to invest in the latest dental technology and in training with the latest dental techniques. These dentists are able to obtain 3D scans of the patient’s mouth, allowing them to view the dental structure from any angle. The analysis of distances, thickness, and depth of the jawbone allows the dentist to establish the best place and angle for the dental implant, virtually eliminating any risk involved in the procedure.
As a result of the use of this technology, patients can go back home assured that their implants will be strong and stable and reduce the likelihood that they will experience any complications.
