    Once the intraoral scan of the patient’s mouth or scanned models have been imported and aligned in the surgical guide fabrication software, a rough implant placement is done using the information on the Rx and industry-standard guidelines. Vital structures are able to be visualized on the scan, and are then accurately marked by an Albensi technician. The treatment plan is then reviewed by resident periodontist Dr. Michael Pikus and is approved or adjusted accordingly. 

    Digital Esthetics unpacks the world of digital dentistry

    Dr. Pikus always evaluates implant angulation and the esthetic goals of the case. Bone density and vital structures are evaluated and implants placed in the most ideal position given the patient’s oral anatomy and pathology (if any is noted). Implant size and restorative options are considered so that spacing of implants is proper to achieve proper balance and cross arch stabilization to maximize implant and immediate load stability. Upon completion of the internal review, a remote session is scheduled between the dentist and an Albensi Laboratory specialist where the plan is reviewed and final adjustments requested by the treating dentist can be made.
