Minimally invasive surgery

Based on modern imaging techniques and on 3D printed surgical stents, digital planning allows the surgeon to perform accurate implant installation with minimal incisions that allow for a more forgiving healing process.
These techniques also focus on the preservation of the natural healthy tissue and usually rely on image magnification such as loupes or microscopes.
