"My dental implant surgery experience with Dr. Heldt in 2017 was professional, precise, and painless. He explained the procedure in detail and he exuded high confidence for a great outcome. He is enthusiastic about his work, showing me how using a CT Scan and Surgical Guide ensures a precise and perfect outcome. He is proud to use top quality Nobel Biocare implants and I am grateful for the high quality. During the surgery, he checked on my well being and comfort level often. He was careful and encouraging. After surgery, he took an X-ray and showed me the perfect placement of the posts. Dr. Heldt earns highest possible marks from me for pain management, skill, precision, and a warm genuine manner."

Surgical Guide CAD Designs before 3D Printing. Dr. Heldt specializes in Fully-Guided Dental Implant Surgery for the highest precision and accuracy possible. All planning, surgery, and restorative work performed by Dr. Heldt for quality control start to finish. One of Newport Beach’s most experienced implant surgeons using this technology, he lectures for Nobel Biocare and assists other doctors in learning the software.
“Fully-Guided” implant surgery means the implant is inserted through a metal sleeve surgical guide for the highest precision available. The final position is pre-determined on a computer using a CT Scan and a custom mold of the patient’s teeth. A clear surgical guide is 3D printed allowing for the implant to be placed in the same computer planned positions during the surgical procedure.
