Chrome guided Surgery

Chrome guided surgery is the perfect process to have a preplanned predictable guided all-on-x style surgery.

This process delivers anchored bite verification, anchored bone reduction, anchored drilling sites, an accurate anchored provisional, along with a method of transferring all surgical and restorative information for the final restorative conversion step.

A CT is simply what is required for most cases.

Below is our step by step process. 


#1 - Patient’s pre-op model

The surgical process begins with pulling the tissue away from the bone.

#2 - Photo of Fixation Base & Osteotomy Guide

Windows are provided to be sure the guide is fully seated. Fixation pins are used to stabilize all guides for the remaining parts of the surgical process.

#5 - Chrome Surgical Guide is then used to place the implants in the pre-planned implant sites.

Remove fixation Base and suture tissue. Place implant abutments in the proper position for temporary prosthetic seating.

#6 - Temporary prosthetic is seated and resin cured onto temporary implant abutments.

Patient will heal for 4-6 weeks before permanent nano-ceramic hybrid prosthetic is placed.
