Thailand is home to some of the world’s best dentists and the destination of choice for people from around the world looking for dental implant solutions. The reasons are many: Internationally trained skillful dentists. No waiting lists. Value for money. And a wonderful place for recovery. Bangkok’s renowned Chulalongkorn University is now home to South East Asia’s first Implant Real-time Imaging System. Here at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery in the Faculty of Dentistry, the IRIS-100 machine from Taiwan features the utilization of optical tracking systems to instantly visualize the implant. The critical data gathered from the IRIS-100 assists the dentist in virtual navigation before surgery and real-time guidance during the actual implant surgery. In simple terms, think of Google maps or a car navigation system. The machine is set up to visualize the destination and then helps to guide the pre-planned placement of implants by avoiding dangerous areas. With the aid of this real-time imaging system, users can see the position of the drill and also data such as bone quality, nerve and sinus location. This means a dentist can create the perfect implant and ensure a perfect fit for every patient.
Under the guidance of Professor Atiphan, Chulalongkorn, University’s finest dental academy graduates have already begun offering vastly improved dental implant surgery to a wide range of patients. Not only is the technology remarkably accurate, it’s also incredibly safe. Thanks to this advanced technology the likelihood of successful implant surgery is now higher than ever
