Screw Selection for Multi-Unit Abutment for iCAM photogrammetry

When setting up case in photogrammetry, you can select the type of screw you will be using for the prosthesis so that it gets incorporated into the design of the prosthesis.  There is a trend developing where doctors prefer to mill or print directly to the Multi-Unit Abutment and a standard screw won’t suffice.

In Imetric’s ICam software you can chose which screw design you prefer which are often used to provide adequate spacing for the material and adequate length to engage the screw to the platform.  Properly labeling the  suprastructure at start up will provide the geometry you will need for the manufacturing.
