Guide Right is a dentist-developed, prosthetically generated precision implant template planning and correction system that can be made and corrected in the office or by a lab.
The template enables dental professionals to communicate the desired position of an implant placement by using radiopaque stainless steel or ceramic guide sleeves to locate the exact position of the implant. Guide sleeves are captured in a light cured resin gel on a plaster cast and indexed to the patient's adjacent teeth.
The Guide Right technique requires a diagnostic wax-up or set up to determine the planned position and angles of the osteotomy sites. The diagnostic template is placed in the patient and radiographs are taken to determine if the path of insertion or osteotomy is in conflict with the adjacent teeth, alveolar bone or other anatomic structures. If a conflict exists corrections are made by altering the angular or linear position of the guide sleeve using angle or offset guide posts and re-fabricating the template. The angle of the guide sleeve is altered by bending the guide post to correct the position of the final surgical guide. 2D or 3D X-rays are analyzed to determine the correction.
