It is the only type of implant that does not require the addition of bone, being made according to a perfectly individualized plan, using the anatomical structures present in the jaw and mandible.

The patient is scanned in the area of ​​interest and on the basis Computer Tomography images, a 3D model is created with the help of medical equipment specially created to analyze dental problems in detail.
