New Scan Procedure for Immediate Extraction & Placment Guides

2. Seat the primary scan appliance containing the gutta percha fiducials in the patient’s mouth, without the separate sections. Seat the radio translucent bite registration material provided with the case over the appliance and guide the patient into the bite material. In absence of the bite material two cotton rolls can be used.
3. Request that the patient stay motionless, and follow the manufactures instructions to capture the CBCT images.
4. Remove the appliance from the patient’s mouth and attach the removable scan appliance section(s) back to the primary scan appliance. Glue the sections in place with a small amount of adhesive glue (included).

5. After the glue sections have completely dried place the appliance back in the CBCT scanner. The appliance should not be placed directly on the chin rest it should be separated from the chin rest with a Styrofoam or foam block, such as the padding inside a ROE shipping box, figure 3.

Using a surgical guide to locate and uncover implants AND as a custom tray

The surgical guide used to place the implants is not a throw-away. When the implants are incovered in a few months, place the surgical guide in the mouth, use a marker, place a dot on the implant site and uncover. When the implants are ready for the final impression, use this same guide to transfer the case to the laboratory - an excellent custom tray. The images are compliments of Dr. Ali Kanawait, Prosthodontist in Cleveland OH.
