Medit i500’s Artificial Intelligence Custom Implant Identification Using The Analog Impression Abutment As A Scanbody

Medit has launched a software that is the greatest advancements in digital dentistry in more than a decade! With artificial intelligence, you can identify the scanbody during intra-oral digital scans. This has many implications for accurate scan captures and skipping multiple steps in the design process in CAD software like exocad.

But there is more! This will knock your socks off. You can build your own custom library for scanbodies or you can use geometries of abutment libraries from your favorite implant line. In this article we show how to import the stl file for a physical impression abutment (Closed Tray- Blueskybio Part #MIJH) and use it as a scanbody. Just watch the following videos

A lot of implant manufacturers will readily distribute their libraries of abutments and scanbodies. Here, we just chose the MIJH impression abutment and previewed it in one of the many free 3D viewer programs included in windows 10.

Once the data is imported into the library, you can preview it and incorporated into your own library of abutment. Please note that the abutment libraries are stored in the arch catalog boxes while the scanbody libraries are stored in the scanbdoy library, which means the abutment itself may be taken into consideration when capturing the buccal bite.

Once the abutment is identified in Medit it is directly transferred into cad software like exocad to proceed with design. Note in this footage how little of the physical abutment impression was brought into cad software. This greatly reduces errors and your imaging time intra-orally. You can also place a stock abutment and scan it in the same manner and be able to find margins with great ease without having to reach hemostasis or good tissue retraction
