Handpiece Motion Tracker

A dental implant navigation system includes handpiece and jaw attachments, a motion tracker sensor, motion tracker software, and cameras. This technology is used to create real-time imagery and calculations of where dental tools are in relation to the patient’s jaw so dental implants can be placed precisely where they should be, with accuracy of about a millimeter or so. An image of the patient’s jaw and tooth structures is created within seconds by a CT and with some systems, can include digital impression data. This technology is likened to GPS and allows periodontists and oral surgeons to fully visualize the patient’s mouth and the instrument in their hand in real-time. Dental implant navigation systems allow periodontists to perform flapless surgeries and reduce the necessity of bone augmentation and custom abutments. Overall, these navigation systems enable dental professionals to provide less invasive, safer, and faster care.
