X-Guide and Dental Implants

At the Faircourt Dental Smile Studio, we want you to experience the difference modern dentistry has to offer.  With this said, we reintroduce X-Guide, a dynamic 3D navigation for more accurate dental implant placement.

Dr. Stonisch has distinguished herself as one of the first dentists to offer X-Guide®, 3D-navigated implant placement to patients in the Metro Detroit area.  Dr. Stonisch is excited to be able to offer this service to our valued patients, as well as to our Grosse Pointe community and its surrounding areas.

The industry-leading X-Guide surgical system paired with Cone Beam 3D imaging allows us to provide the most accurate implant surgery.  With X-Guide navigated surgery, Dr. Stonisch utilizes live, 3D views of the patient’s anatomy with real-time directions during your procedure to place the implant exactly where it should be.

Dr. Stonisch’s control and precision over the entire implant process are elevated.

The result is the ability to deliver a more desirable functional and aesthetic outcome in dental implant surgeries.  Also, same-day, guided surgery is now a reality for more patients.   

The more precisely a dentist can place an implant, the better the aesthetics and functionality will be once it is placed. X-Guide® is a new dynamic 3D navigation program that ­­allows dentists to place an implant more accurately.


Advantages of X-Guide® navigation technology
X-Guide® is a patent-pending surgical navigation system that offers benefits to both dentists and patients as a guide to placing dental implants.

Benefits to dentists
X-Guide® is compatible with existing Cone Beam 3D systems. The latter allows a dentist to create clear, three-dimensional images of teeth in exquisite detail during the planning process, while the former works in concert to help the surgeon guide the surgical implant by concentrating on one dynamic focal point on the screen.

The X-Guide® works like a GPS for the surgical drill, helping to improve the handpiece movement during osteotomy through turn-by-turn interactive guidance. X-Guide® allows the surgeon to control the following aspects of exact implant placement:

  • Angle
  • Depth
  • Position

For example, X-Guide® allows the dentist to track drill depth during surgery through an easy-to-read, color-coded system.  This navigational guidance happens in real time as the surgery is taking place. X-Guide® allows dentists to place implants with the same level of detail used to plan the surgery in the first place.

Benefits to patients
Getting dental implants or implant-supported dentures is already a time-consuming process for patients. Following placement of the implants, it is necessary to wait several additional months for the metal and bone to fuse together. For a static guide process of implant placement, shipping or processing delays can require patients to wait even longer. With the X-Guide® system, many patients can receive guided surgery on the same day, eliminating those extra delays.
