Enhanced patient communication and education
CS Solutions for Implants enables clinicians to facilitate patient communication and education. They can help patients understand the entire implant process from start to finish, address their concerns and build their confidence in the treatment plan. For example, using CS Solutions’ interactive planning software, clinicians can show their patients images of their crown build-up. Clinicians can then assure them of the higher quality outcome that results from using the prosthetic driven planning workflow: “If I place a standard abutment, not an angled abutment, you will have the strongest, easiest and most cost-effective implant option.”
Scanning and diagnosis:
From obtaining detailed 360° views of a patient’s bone morphology with the CS 8100,CS 9300, or CS9600 CBCT system to making silicon-free digital impressions with the CS 3600 intra-oral scanner, Carestream Dental’s 3D imaging systems cover the entire implant process. Clinicians can see the complete picture of the clinical situation, enabling them to evaluate bone volume, mandibular nerves, and sinuses, as well as the soft tissues and surface detail of the teeth. 3D data is then stored centrally in single imaging software to facilitate and expedite data management and retrieval.
User friendly and intuitive, CS 3D Imaging software takes the process of planning implants to a whole new level of efficiency and precision. CBCT and digital impression data are merged automatically with little-to-no manipulation required. Clinicians can add virtual crowns and select from a comprehensive library of implants (from more than 60 manufacturers) to virtually place implants in the appropriate axis and then add abutments. They can also create their own implants and manage their own library. Clinicians can view the location of the proposed implant in relation to the bone and restoration—on the same screen—to ensure optimal positioning and aesthetic results.
To create the surgical guide, clinicians—with just one click—simply export the 3D data into their preferred third-party surgical guide software, thanks to the open file format. Clinicians can easily generate implant reports—again, with a single click—which helps them effectively prepare for surgery and share information with the treatment network, referrals and patients.
The digital workflow continues in the restoration phase, as the clinician uses the intraoral scanner to acquire the implant position and create the final restoration. Because CS Solutions for Implants produces open files that can be used in third-party CAD software, clinicians can use the lab of their choice to create implant-borne restorations. Labs, in turn, have flexibility in the CAD software they use. As a result, doctors can enjoy an unlimited range of potential partners to choose from.
