Dynamic surgical navigation is now the leading edge of accuracy in providing implant surgery.

While introduced approximately 14 years ago by Robodent in Germany, other companies seeing the marketing benefits of this technology have entered into the field.  The Inliant Clinical Navigation System revolutionary marker and tracker design provides comfort, convenience and accuracy for implant placement surgery.  This presentation will demonstrate the clinical procedures in using the Inliant product and the quality of the end result.

  1. To provide an understanding of the concept of Dynamic Surgical Navigation
  2. To demonstrate the criteria required to perform these procedures
  3. To effectively show how Dynamic Surgical Navigation is used in surgery
  4. To illustrate the effectiveness in providing surgical accuracy
  5. To present a case study which documents all steps from tooth extraction to implant restoration.
