Using data from any CT or MRI scan, our rapid prototype machines can make precise models of any part of the skeleton in a variety of materials.
The bony replica may be handled and manipulated before and at the time of surgery, allowing the surgeon to become directly familiarised with the region. This may mean that surgery can take place using smaller incisions, perhaps with less post-operative swelling and bruising, and a shorter recovery time.
This is particularly useful for surgical planning and a fantastic aid to understanding and explaining treatment. Your Specialist may even carry out a ' trial run' on the model to perfect their approach, and select the best fit for dental implants, joint prostheses, or fixation plates.
This truly represents the gold standard in surgical planning for any kind of dental implant, maxillofacial, or orthopaedic surgical procedure.
