New workflow from Carestream Dental improves predictability, which reportedly gives doctors more confidence when placing implants
Carestream Dental has introduced CS Solutions for Implants, a digital integrated implant solution that is said to support more confident diagnoses, improved treatment planning, better patient/referral communication and greater confidence when placing implants.
Prosthetically driven implant planning starts by combining the data sets from a digital impression taken by either the CS 3500 or CS 3600 intraoral scanner and a CBCT scan by either the CS 8100 3D extraoral imaging system or CS 9300 system. The two scans are reportedly automatically aligned in CS 3D Imaging software to create a virtual set-up with little to no manipulation from the doctor.
Next, a new Prosthetic-Driven Implant Planning module of CS 3D Imaging allows doctors to virtually plan the crown and implant on the same screen to ensure that the implant is positioned according to the ideal future restoration. Doctors add the crown to the combined scanner/CBCT datasets and place the implant from a library featuring more than 60 manufacturers. They can also create their own implants and manage their own library.
The software reportedly helps doctors make better decisions about optimal crown and implant position, which leads to more control over the final clinical and aesthetic outcomes.
CS Solutions for Implants is an open system, so data can also be exported1 into third-party software for the creation of surgical guides and digital impression files can be shared with the lab of choice for the creation of abutments and restorations.
From 3D scans to the finished surgical guide, CS Solutions for Implants is a fully integrated and digital solution for implant treatment. The digital workflow is said to improve efficiency by eliminating many treatment steps and appointments and improving collaborative planning.
