In the ever-evolving world of dental technology, a recent article authored by Dr. Paul S. Mozer has shed light on a remarkable collaboration that’s reshaping the landscape of implant planning. Dr. Mozer’s clinical case featured in the AGD-affiliated Florida Focus journal delves into the successful use of guided surgery and ultra-narrow diameter implants. Notably, this innovative procedure was made possible through the combined efforts of Atomica and 3Sixty, industry leaders in dental innovation. In this blog post, we’ll delve into Dr. Mozer’s clinical case, highlighting how Atomica & 3Sixty played pivotal roles in this transformative dental journey.
Dr. Paul Mozer’s Clinical Case
The clinical case presented by Dr. Mozer involved an 81-year-old patient with challenging dental issues, including significant bone loss and tooth mobility in the anterior mandible. Dr. Mozer, through extensive consultation, explored various treatment options, including Periodontal Surgery and removable prosthetics. However, the patient ultimately chose implant therapy.
“In a very narrow ridge clinical situation, placing implants freehand can be very challenging yet with Atomica.ai implant planning software, 3Sixty digital treatment planning service and the Adin Touareg Closefit keyless guided surgery kit, placing 2.75 mm ultra-narrow diameter implants can be as predictable, accurate and stress-free as placing a traditional implant in a healed molar site.”

The Surgical Procedure
On the day of surgery, Dr. Mozer walked the patient through each step, administered necessary medications, and performed extractions. Adin Touareg Closefit 2.75 mm x 11.5 mm ultra-narrow diameter implants were then placed using the 3Sixty static surgical guide and Adin Implants’ specialized implant kit. The procedure also involved the use of Bio-Oss xenograft bone graft and Bio-Gide collagen membrane for optimal results. The patient received post-surgery instructions, including medications and oral hygiene guidelines. A follow-up appointment at 10 days allowed for suture removal and further assessment.
What made this procedure truly remarkable was the utilization of The Atomica AI-powered Implant Planning Software and 3Sixty’s Digital Treatment Planning Services, based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This dynamic collaboration played a crucial role in mapping out a precise treatment plan for the patient. The digital journey began with a cone beam three-dimensional image and an intraoral scan taken with the Cerec Omnicam from Dentsply Sirona. These images were then transmitted to 3Sixty using their HIPAA-compliant 360Courier software. Subsequently, treatment planning unfolded in a collaborative manner between the surgeon and the Dentist-Treatment Planner from 3Sixty, facilitated by the online program Zoom from San Jose, California.
Central to the success of this procedure was the Atomica AI implant planner. This innovative platform allowed for the precise extraction of offending teeth and the planning of implants in ideal positions. The software leveraged artificial intelligence to automatically design the static resin surgical guide, ensuring a seamless and error-free experience.
Dr. Paul Mozer’s clinical case exemplifies the transformative potential of collaborative dental innovation. Atomica and 3Sixty, through their cutting-edge technologies and expertise, played instrumental roles in achieving precise, predictable, and stress-free implant placements. As Dr. Mozer’s case underscores, guided surgery and ultra-narrow diameter implants are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in dentistry. Stay tuned for more developments as Atomica and 3Sixty continue to shape the future of digital dentistry.
