Only used for the Sirona Galileos CBCT Unit
There are many different scan protocols being used throughout the industry today, which adds a level of confusion and complexity to guided surgery cases. In an effort to simplify and minimize confusion and mistakes, Implant Concierge™ will automatically generate a patient specific “scan protocol” that will provide instructions to ensure the most efficient digital workflow is followed.
For a fully edentulous case and if using a Sirona CBCT unit, the most predictable results occur by following an alternative process to our standard, Dual Scan Protocol. Due to internal DICOM settings within the Sirona Galileos CBCT unit, this “Alternate Dual Scan Protocol” is recommended. Once again, the “Alternate Dual Scan Protocol” only needs to be followed if you are using the Sirona CBCT unit for fully edentulous cases.
Step 1: Duplicate the patient’s well‐fitting denture with clear acrylic
a. NO radiopaque additives such as barium sulfate or Biocryl-X
Step 2: Attach six to eight 1.0mm X‐ray stickers (1.0mm Suremark stickers )
a. Place 3-4 X-ray stickers on buccal and 3-4 on the lingual at varying axial planes
Step 3: Take a CBCT scan of patient wearing denture WITH X-ray markers
a. Do NOT remove or change X-ray markers from original positions
Step 4: Compress and upload CBCT DICOM file to Implant Concierge™
Step 5: Ship the duplicated denture with X-ray markers to Implant Concierge™
a. Ensure denture is bilaterally stabilized during CBCT scan
Once Implant Concierge™ receives the duplicated denture with X-ray markers, Implant Concierge™ will scan the denture and merge the file with the Sirona DICOM file previously uploaded. Using this protocol, Implant Concierge™ will create and present the ideal restorative based treatment plan to you via a short web-based virtual surgery allowing you to make final changes. After your approval, Implant Concierge™ will design, print and ship the CAD/CAM surgical guide to you within a few business days. Choose from soft-tissue or bone-borne guides.
