Planmeca introduces new Romexis Implant Guide module

The software can be used to plan, design and fabricate a single piece implant guide.

Ever since implants became an important option for patients seeking to replace lost teeth, dentists have searched for tools to help them improve their implant placement outcome. Implant guides are an excellent tool to help them meet this goal.

The new Planmeca Romexis® Implant Guide module reportedly utilizes a 3D volume, STL data file and an implant module software to plan, design and fabricate a single piece implant guide in your practice or to send out that design to a lab for manufacture.

“Our new implant workflow streamlines the process and helps reduce potential errors,” says Brett Hines, president of PlanmecaUSA. “For dentists, this means that with Planmeca Romexis® software and 3D imaging, you can ensure that all treatments are carried out according to your plan.”

Planmeca Romexis® is said to automatically mark the undercuts so the guide can be designed for an optimal fit for the patient. Planmeca Romexis® is engineered to visualize the drilling depth distance from sleeve top to implant apical tip to assist in the implant procedure. Additionally, the implant guide was designed with dentists in mind and it provides:

  • Easy customization as the dentist defines how they want their guides to be: small, large, snap fit or loose fit

  • Significantly lower cost by printing in office - no export fees - or send out to a lab

  • All-in-one platform - uninterrupted workflow, optimized work efficiency

“Your patients feel more comfortable prior to surgery if they see that everything has been planned well, and that a surgical implant guide will help you to place the implant correctly,” Hines says.
