In this video, we show how you to capture the healing abutment, the tissue profile after the abutment is removed, and then we image the scanbody while utilizing the AI feature of the Medit i700 to pick up all the data from the scanbody by matching the STL to the physical one during the scan
Here is why the Medit i700 is the best intra-oral scanner on the market if you do any kind of implant restorations. There are so many options and tools that are leap years ahead of other scanners and their software. Medit can automatically identify the scanbody for you so you don’t have to do cartwheels and gymnastics to pick up all of the scanbody. This is in part 1 of the video.
For advanced users, we are sick of dealing with scanbodies and checking to make sure they are seated all the way and not binding on the tissue or bone, so we developed this technique of just scanning the fixture itself. It is not ideal just yet, but it will be the future, as the inside of the fixture is too shiny. i just used some old cerec spray to mask the topography for this demonstration.
oh, and really, no one else can show you how to milk that medit like cad-ray.com can. we use it well beyond what it was intended for and frankly you are wasting your time and money with most others. contact Frank DeLuca, Frank Weinstein, Laura Geney, Nick Statly, Damien Bonner, Jonathan Acker in the US or Milos Gedosev, Mariangela Di Nato, Roddy MacLeod in Europe for more information
To use the Artificial Implant Suprastructure Identification Software to identify a scanbody, you have to understand how it is listed in the library. It is not listed by the name of the implant company but rather the manufacturer that fabricates that implant lines scanbody. For example, there are multiple choices for Nobel Active Conical Connection scanbodies. The easiest way to find them is to search for the pre-loaded brands, but be aware of the routing abbreviations many companies utilize. For Nobel Active, usually NB AC is used.
Then you must choose whether you are going to fabricate a Ti-Base or a Custom Abutment, and whether you are using an intra-oral or extra oral scanbody. The connection type (diameter) and the material (titanium vs. chrome cobalt) also must be selected. Here’s a quick video that illustrates the selection process. You must also consider if a 10 or 14 mm diameter blank is going to be used to mill the product. In molar areas, a size 14 is preferred so that you can reach the outer most boundaries of your desired margins, whereas a 10 mm blank may be too narrow and small for a molar.
