Surgical Stents

The surgical stent is an important component of the mini dental implant package from Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.®. From the case plan, Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® technicians produce a surgical stent that will easily guide the placement of the implant.

Our surgical stents provide the specific site(s) and the angulations for implant placement. During the mini-implant procedure, the titanium metal sleeve in the stent is used to guide the pilot drill to the pre-determined mini-implant location.· The same stent then serves to guide the actual placement of the mini dental implant.

The accuracy provided by the surgical stent is crucial in achieving successful results for the mini-implant procedure. This results in patients receiving the most functional and aesthetically-pleasing results from their mini implant procedure, while dentists benefit from our well-crafted yet cost-effective product.
