P167 Guided Surgery: Making Implant Placement Simpler

Speaker: Nick Fahey

  • About This Course

Guided surgery for implant placement is not a new concept in implant dentistry. Restoratively driven implant placement is a well-accepted and often-quoted dogma when clinicians consider implant positioning. However, guided surgery, which many believe to be the apogee of restoratively driven implant planning and placement still struggles to find wide-scale acceptance in the UK.

This recorded webinar puts forward the case for computer-guided surgery. It discusses the benefits of planning your surgery virtually before going to the patient’s mouth and the clinical advantages of guided surgery. It also looks to the future and how this fast-evolving technology may evolve.


This course aims to provide learners with knowledge and understanding of guided surgery, putting forward the case for its use. An overview of planning surgery virtually before going to the patient's mouth and the clinical advantages of guided surgery is given.


To learn how:

  • Using guided surgery protocols can simplify all aspects of implant dentistry.
  • Planning your implant cases virtually is beneficial for the surgeon, restoring colleague (if different to the surgeon) and most importantly the patient.
  • Guided surgery can be used to improve safety.
  • Virtually planned and surgically guided implant placement is a powerful tool medico-legally.
