Surging Ahead: The European Dental Implants Market’s Fastest-Growing Segment – Surgical Guides

Surgical Guide

Surgical guides have become increasingly common in dental procedures, working alongside treatment planning software. Utilizing three-dimensional (3D) imaging of the patient’s dental anatomy, these guides enable dentists to plan precise implant placements and angles. Fabricated using rapid prototyping manufacturing or computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, surgical guides act as physical templates placed in the patient’s mouth, ensuring accurate implant positioning. Particularly beneficial for complex cases and hard-to-reach areas, surgical guides offer a reliable solution for dentists, increasing the predictability and success of implant cases while making the process easier and faster. In this blog, we take a look into the reasons why the surgical guides market is one of the fastest growing markets in all of the dental industry.

Total Surgical Guide Market Drivers

Amongst several market drivers, one of the leading causes of growth in the market is the increasing number of new general practitioners entering the dental implant market. Because these practitioners do not possess the same comfort level that dental implant specialists have from years of experience in the field, they typically rely on surgical guides to deliver accurate results when performing these procedures thus increasing the popularity of these surgical guides.

Another reason for the increase in popularity of surgical guides is the importance of accuracy in the field of cosmetic dentistry where aesthetics is particularly important. Since angle and placement are vital to the success of the procedure, surgical guides are preferred to ensure precise and intricate implant placement. This allows dentists to have an improved workflow ensuring predictability and consistency in their work.
