Guided surgery

Plan and place dental implants with high accuracy and precision with guided surgery tools from Nobel Biocare. Whether it’s a NobelGuide® template that simply fits, or you are looking to locally print surgical guides and templates, we have a solution for you.

Place according to plan.

Your first drill counts

In narrow spaces or close to the inferior alveolar nerve, there is no room for error. Guided drilling assists you in achieving the correct angulation, direction and depth of the drill when placing implants. Fully guided implant surgery enables you to best utilize your prosthetically driven implant planning.

Fewer risks with guided surgery

It helps you to avoid critical anatomical structures and to place implants as you have planned.

Simple setup for pilot drilling

Only one drill and one template is needed before you proceed with your free-hand drill kit, available for major implant systems.

Higher accuracy and predictability of implant positions, in comparison with freehand surgery1

Lower swelling and edema, as well as use of analgesics with guided flapless surgery compared with freehand surgery2-4

High patient satisfaction attributed to short treatment times and minimal discomfort5

Real-time 3D guidance. Now with X-Mark™.

Take freehand surgery to the next level. X-Guide delivers real-time guidance of drill and implant positions. X-Mark allows you to turn diagnostic scans into navigated plans – even without CBCT scan reference points.
