Comparison of guided and non-guided implant placement accuracy (Part 1)

Fig. 2: Exemplary pair of models before the procedure: on the left, without the guide, and on the right, with the guide.
Fig. 3: A model with the guide and implants after the implantation. The guide was stabilised with two posts.
Fig. 4: The material was deposited on the drill attached to the extension.
Fig. 5: Drill attached to the extension passing through the reduction sleeve. The extension allows the drill to be guided correctly without touching the template on the adjacent tooth with the contra-angle handpiece. Clinically, the use of the drill extension may be impossible, especially in molars, owing to the limited opening of the jaws.
Fig. 6: Models after performing the procedures with the use of the guide. The same of the implants inserted are visible.
