Another example of how well the i500 from Medit can scan with a deep focal length. This is impossible to do with any other IOS system on the market. Don’t misunderstand, this is not an easy impression to capture, but if you are well trained and know what you are doing, it’s very accurate and simple.
In this video you will see how the upper arch is captured in under a minute. Then the lower arch is capture with the healing abutment removed. Watch carefully how there is a lot of effort made to capture the distal wall / contact area of the bicuspid. You can also see the effort made to capture information below the height of contour of the distal molar. The mesial information is critical for designing the emergence profile of the abutment and restoration[videopress 2Di5fUxy permalink=”false” hd=”true”]
After both arches are captured, the software leads you to the step where you capture the peek impression post. It is seated completely and an X-ray was taken to verify the accuracy. The edentulous area where the abutment would be positioned is cropped on the Meditlink software, and the impression post is scanned. It is imperative to make sure the adjacent teeth are imaged so the software can properly line up the landmark of this scan with the previous scan of the edentulous mandible.
After the Peek Scan Body for a Narrow Platform is imaged, it is removed, and the patient bites down into maximum intercuspation. The camera then captures the data so that it can articulated the models together. The buccal bite scan turns green once a positive adaptation is made.[videopress LF2bvJPR permalink=”false” hd=”true”]
Once the relationship of the upper arch and the lower arch are confirmed, the case can be submitted to a lab for the manufacturing of a custom abutment. You also have the choice of fabricating chairside abutments with a milling machine, if you choose to.[videopress KO0p1khg permalink=”false” hd=”true” loop=”true” autoplay=”true”]
