For hundreds of years, dentists and technicians have used plaster stone models to fabricate dental restorations. Though current impression materials such as polyvinyl siloxane and polyether can provide excellent dimensional accuracy, the expansion of stone and discrepancy occurring with manipulation of stone models produce dental restorations that fit poorly and need chair side adjustments.
Using our high resolution Guidance Scanner, we can actually measure and illustrate stone expansion and contraction. Unlike stone models, our scan technology provides consistent dimensional accuracy, which is the foundation for well fitting, high precision restorations. Because we do not have to pour stone or wait until it hardens, you receive reliable final restorations of exceptional seat and fit in a fraction of the time over conventional methods.
You can take triple tray impressions with Guidance copings (please provide us with implant manufacturer, type and size). Unlike current impression and restoration systems requiring impressions with coping or a scan body per each arch, no individual tray or open tray techniques are needed. With Guidance, fixture location, orientation, custom abutments, and restorations are designed precisely and digitally using our 3D model. Per your request, final restorations are finished in cement type or screw retained type.
