Saveetha Dental College (SDC), in Chennai, becomes the first dental institute in India to have a dynamic navigation system and signs a research MOU with the University of Glasgow, UK.
Dr Kalanidhi Veeraswamy, MP digitally launched the dynamic navigation system in the presence of Dr N.M.Veeraiyan, Founder & Chancellor SIMATS (Saveetha Institute of Medical And Technical Sciences) and Dr. Deepak Nallaswamy, Director of Academics SIMATS.
Dynamic navigation system forces the surgeon to plan the surgery and placement of a virtual implant in terms of angulation, depth, location, size and depth thus allowing for a well-planned surgery. Placement of implant using dynamic navigation is more accurate compared with implant placement with Free Hand approach.
“The dynamic navigation system greatly decreases the complication rates of difficult procedures. The MOU with the University of Glasgow will begin with research centred towards dental implantology and will expand further into the other fields such as maxillofacial surgeries,” said Dr. N.M.Veeraiyan, Founder & Chancellor SIMATS.
