Precision Guided "Key Hole" Dental Implant Surgery

Overview of Precision Guided "Key Hole" Dental Implant Surgery

At Coastal Smiles in Dee Why, Sydney NSW, we understand that missing teeth can be a significant source of discomfort and embarrassment. Dental implants offer a safe and effective solution to restore missing teeth, but traditional implant surgery can be invasive and require extended healing time. That’s why we offer precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery, a minimally invasive and highly precise technique that can restore your smile with less pain and a faster recovery time.


Traditional dental implant surgery requires the dentist to make a larger incision in the gums to access the jawbone, which can be uncomfortable and require an extended healing period. Precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery, on the other hand, uses a minimally invasive approach that minimizes discomfort and allows for a faster recovery time.

Precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery uses state-of-the-art technology, including 3D imaging and computer-guided surgical planning, to ensure precise implant placement. This minimizes the risk of complications and ensures that your implants are placed in the ideal position for long-lasting results.

Because precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery is minimally invasive, there is less trauma to the gums and jawbone, which can help speed up the recovery process. Patients typically experience less discomfort, swelling, and bleeding, and can return to normal activities within a few days.


If you are interested in precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery, here’s what you can expect when you visit Coastal Smiles:

Our dental team will begin by discussing your dental history, oral health, and implant goals. We may take x-rays or perform other diagnostic tests to assess your jawbone density and determine if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.

Based on your consultation and diagnostic tests, our team will create a personalized treatment plan that outlines the number of implants you require, the ideal implant location, and the best type of implant for your needs.

During the procedure, our team will use advanced 3D imaging and computer-guided surgical planning to guide the placement of your implants through a small incision in your gums. This minimizes discomfort and ensures precise implant placement.

After your surgery, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that your implants heal correctly. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days, and most patients experience minimal discomfort and swelling.

At Coastal Smiles, we are committed to using the latest technology and techniques to provide our patients with the best possible dental care. If you are interested in precision-guided “keyhole” dental implant surgery, please contact us to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Precision-guided "keyhole" dental implant surgery is a minimally invasive technique that uses advanced technology, such as 3D imaging and computer-guided surgery, to place dental implants with high precision and accuracy through a small incision in the gum tissue. This technique reduces the need for large incisions and minimizes the risk of complications.

Traditional implant surgery involves making a larger incision in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone, which can lead to more discomfort and a longer recovery time. Precision-guided "keyhole" implant surgery, on the other hand, uses computer-guided technology to place the implant through a small incision in the gum tissue, resulting in less pain, swelling, and downtime.

Patients who are in good overall health and have sufficient jawbone density are generally good candidates for precision-guided "keyhole" implant surgery. However, the suitability of this technique depends on the individual case and should be discussed with your dentist.

The length of the procedure and recovery time can vary depending on the number of implants and the complexity of the case. However, because the surgery is minimally invasive, the recovery time is typically shorter than with traditional implant surgery.

The benefits of precision-guided "keyhole" dental implant surgery include a minimally invasive procedure, reduced pain and swelling, faster recovery time, and high precision and accuracy in implant placement. This technique also reduces the risk of complications and provides a more predictable outcome.
