dental-implants-using-a-computer.jpg A new procedure has shown promising results for dental implant surgery. A computer program helps patients to have dental implants that stay strong and the surgery can be done within an hour. The patient needs a CAT scan of his skull prior to the surgery and the surgeons will plan the entire surgery (like which implant they need and where it has to be fixed exactly) in the computer only. Then, the surgery will be performed on the patient with the help of the computer. It is said that this process lets the surgeons finish the procedure within a short time. The procedure is minimally invasive, minimal swelling, pain and discomfort. This procedure also shortens the recovery time largely.
