09:00 06 March in News

Every innovation in dentistry marks a significant step forward in patient treatment. A remarkable advancement is a new option of using the SICAT DIGITALGUIDE for fully edentulous cases. This innovation offers a precise and efficient method for implant planning specifically customized to meet the needs of edentulous patients.

Utilizing the prosthesis and markers

To use the SICAT DIGITALGUIDE for edentulous cases, the patient must have a well-fitting prosthesis. It must be clean, relined and optimally adapted to the patient’s jaw. Self-adhesive markers, which must be purchased in advance, also play a central role in the process. The placement of six of these markers on the prosthesis is crucial for the accuracy of the entire procedure. They ensure an accurate match of the prosthesis’s optical scan and the patient’s CBCT scan.

All benefits at a glance:

  • Cost and time efficiency: No additional scanning template required; use of the existing denture saves resources, and the costs are minimized.
  • Precision: Digital impression is created without any influence from movement or metal artefacts.
  • Ease of use: Simple handling thanks to self-adhesive markers.
  • Compatibility: Supports all common implant systems and enables fabrication in the dental practice or lab through 3D printing.

A significant step forward in the treatment of edentulous patients

The new option for using the SICAT DIGITALGUIDE is an important development for treating edentulous patients. By combining precise technology and efficient workflow, this innovation offers a safe, reliable and cost-effective solution for implant placement. Overall, the DIGITALGUIDE opens new possibilities for improved patient comfort and successful dental outcomes.
