The Universal Guided Surgery Tool
For Southern Implants
SIREAL is by virtual prosthesis and on-screen design of surgical guides, allowing prosthetically driven implant placements.
The universal guided surgery tool, I-DE-GS4, from Southern Implants is the solution to the SIREAL Guided surgery system. This tool allows clinicians to utilise their standard Southern Implants drill kit, and convert the drills into guided surgery drills. This unique system extends to other tools used in the surgery.
A surgical guide transfers pre-operative, software planned dental implant placement to the patient intraoperatively. There are three types of surgical guides: Bone supported, Mucosa supported, and Tooth-supported. All surgical guides are patient specific. The surgical guide consists of a 3D printed/milled acrylic guide and metal guide sleeves.
There are three guided surgery options available:
- Pilot drill guided
- Partially guided
- Fully guided
Surgical Guide Types
The surgical guide type selection, depends on the dental professional’s preference, patient anatomy, and the available planning software.
Surgical Guide Fixation
To stabilise the surgical guide, Southern Implants fixation pins are available. D-12T-M15 drill is used to drill through the fixation pin sleeve while guide is in situ. After drilling, insert the pin. Recommended to use 3 pins for full arch guide. If a tooth supported guide requires additional stability, a minimum of 2 pins should be used.
