Proper Implant Placement and Digital Impressions with Scanbodies and Medit i500 Lead to Predictable Results

In this video, we show a recall of an implant restored with a scanbody. When the implant was initially placed, a scanbody was seated and an X-ray was taken to verify that it was seated. The titanium scanbody allows for visualization of seat. A peek scanbody does have a metal carrier but it is confusing to some users to verify that it is engaged with the fixture.

The proper placement of this biomax implant, followed by ideal contouring of tissue and bone around the head of the fixture, allowed for enough “running room” to create the desired emergence profile
