Today, pre-procedure case planning in conjunction with modern implant dentistry technologies, allows us to provide
implants for patients in the ideal location of the jaw to support the strength and longevity of the implant.
Encouraging multiple professionals to contribute their opinion on each individual case helps in achieving the most successful outcome and avoids a restoring dentist’s potential exposure to clinical and financial liability as a result of inadequate planning.
The importance of pre-operative implant gauge indicator use
Common complications to this goal include screw loosening, as well as fractures to the screw, implant or denture. This is where implant gauge indicators come in.

Our Gauge Mini Kit includes three gauges: Straight, 17° & 30°.
Our Gauge Indicators can now be found under our Dental Surgical Instruments category.
