Are Guided Dental Implants

Right For Me?

Dr. Charles Schof is an experienced general, cosmetic and implant dentist in Mandeville. At your dental implant consultation, he will perform a thorough assessment of your oral health and medical history to identify your specific dental needs. He will also consider the shape and condition of the jaw and mouth to determine if an implant is appropriate. You may also discuss opting for a bridge or denture.

Our Guided Dental Implant Process

Wherever we have an option to increase patient comfort and safety, we make the decision. At your appointment for guided dental implants, we consider all aspects of your health and comfort before beginning treatment.

During the process, digital dental imagery with X-Nav technology creates a virtual roadmap of your mouth to deliver exceptional navigational precision in placing the implant. Your appointment may take as little as twenty minutes to an hour to complete.

Before You Ever Choose Implant Dentistry

No one likes surgery, but when you must have it there are ways to make the process as easy on you as possible: Dr. Schof recommends starting by choosing a qualified dental practice, verifying that every effort is made to encourage fast healing and strong retention, and asking every question about your dental health to learn about what to expect of dental and whole-body health.

Benefits of Guided Dental Implants

Guided implant surgery from Mandeville Center for Dental Excellence in Mandeville, LA provides patients with optimal results. Some common benefits include:

  • Precise and accurate implant placement – No guess-work, no “eye-balling” and no fumbling to get it right. Instead, you will receive the most esthetic result that is safe, predictable and efficient.
  • Reduced risk – Computer-guided dental technology allows us to see the entirety of the jaw before placing implants, reducing the risks of unexpected complications during surgery.
  • Reduced surgical time – Dental technology allows an exact template to be created before surgery, this reduced surgical time because the process is laid out beforehand.

We’re even able to superimpose abutments (the connecting elements that attach dental implants to crowns) to reduce the reintroduction of dental work and improve your comfort overall.


Guided Dental Implant Dentistry: Safe. Predictable. Efficient

GUIDED implant dentistry will soon be the Standard of Care! The X-Nav is LIVE guided surgery. Unlike a printed guided process, there is no extended turnaround time or significant fees.

Using X-Nav guided surgery, Dr. Schof is able to provide absolute implant precision and make same-day guided surgery a reality at just a fraction of the cost of traditional implant guided dentistry. With expanded control over the entire dental implant process, Dr. Schof oversees the position, angle and depth of the dental implant process with exceptional navigation technology.

Guided Implant Dentistry: Simply Better Dentistry

Not all dentists perform dental implants, and even fewer are equipped to perform guided dental implant surgery. At Mandeville Center of Dental Excellence Dr. Charles Schof is professionally trained in delivering superior dental implant treatment using guided dental implant surgery.
