Going Digital with CBCT, I/O and Navigation technologies for Restorative Driven, Single Implant, Full Arch, and Sinus Lift Procedures

March 1, 2021

For patients needing everything from a single implant to total or partial edentulism, digital technology is streamlining and improving the workflow for dental implants. What’s making a big difference? The X-Guide and Dynamic Navigation.

Dr. Robert Pauley Jr., DMD, practices dentistry in Union City, Georgia, where he and his staff have been bringing smiles to patients since 1988. Dr. Pauley is a firm believer in the X-Guide by X-Nav Technologies, and he shared his insights with On Point in the hope he could help other dentists discover the benefits of dynamic navigation.

When implant surgery began to pique Dr. Pauley’s interest, he immediately recognized the need for digital technologies to help him plant implants from the perspective of the patient’s bone structure. “This was still placing implants by freehand,” Dr. Pauley said. “It was probably about five years ago, a couple of months after X-Nav was introduced. I was attending a Meisinger’s High Altitude Comprehensive Implant Symposium, and I saw the X-Nav sponsored table.”

Dr. Pauley couldn’t believe the demonstration he witnessed; on-screen navigation helped the dental implant placement procedure implant in the exact planned location. He knew, on the spot, he needed to have X-Nav technology in his practice.

Since obtaining X-Nav, it is the only method Dr. Pauley uses for placing implants. And confidence in placing the implants doesn’t just fall on the dentist’s side. As Dr. Pauley said, “[Patients’] confidence in me becomes much more, because they see what’s involved in the treatment plan.”

X-Nav imports all of the pre-work data done on a patient’s mouth to map out exactly where to place the implant for a perfect fit. And the X-Guide isn’t only for single implants; multiple implants and procedures placing implants near a patient’s sinus floor are routine for the X-Guide navigation system.
