In conversation with the highly acclaimed Dr Firas Osman, Specialist — Dental Implantologist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Medstar Aesthetics and Multi-Speciality Center
Tell us about your latest offering on one-day dental implant procedure? And how is it different from the traditional implant’s procedures?
One-day implant procedures at Medstar Aesthetics and Multi-Speciality Center are performed using artificial intelligence (AI) powered cutting edge technology, which is a combination of the latest imaging technique, simulated pre-surgery modelling, and computer-guided surgery to achieve pain-free same-day results with incredible precision.
Medstar Day Surgery Center is an exclusive R2GATE powered center in the GCC. Megagen’s integrated R2GATE software features a unique module of combining digital impression (achieved via digital oral scanners) with CBCT (Flat panel CT, a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography), for unparalleled accuracy, enhancing the diagnostic decisions made by the Doctor.
With R2GATE, our team of dentists are able to simulate the surgery using AI-powered computers. The interactive implant planning software provides multiple views, enabling the clinician to evaluate potential implant receptor sites with great precision. It also allows them to perform real-time analysis of the bone condition to position, size the implant, determine the drill sequence, and predict the initial stability for immediate loading.
A virtual surgery simulation is conducted prior to the implant procedure, both to educate the patient of the procedure from start to finish and to ensure that there are no unwanted surprises during the restorative stage of the process. This will eliminate any further steps required to salvage a situation with extensions, custom abutments and other compromises when it’s time to place the implant or crown and provide for very optimal results for the patient.
The dental implant procedure at Medstar is tailormade for each patient using the integrated 3D printers which print the chairside surgical guide and the crown, custom abutment made uniquely for each patient via digital technology and the precise selection of implant using R2GATE. All this planning ensures comfortable and non-invasive surgery with a level of accuracy and consistency that is very difficult to achieve through conventional implant placement.
To summarize, there is absolutely no comparison between a one-day implant procedure versus the traditional process of implants, which relies primarily on the experience of the performing surgeon. Our integrated one-day dental implants are not only convenient and cost-effective but also considerably reduces the healing time to a minimum.
Traditional processes that can require multiple visits to the dentist over a period of weeks or months are also minimised to one visit for up to a full mouth implants procedure. This is a same-day service in the most real sense!
