View Module: SimPlant® View is the most advanced communication and marketing tool available on the market for dentists today. Read-only treatment plan files can be shared confidently with referring clinicians, colleagues, labs and even your patients.
    • View treatment plans in 3D, axial, cross-sectional and panoramic views
    • Zoom images to full screen for maximum clarity
    • Measure bone density, angles and distances
    • Implants and abutments overview listings
    • Notes facility within treatment planning screen

Editing Module: The Editing Module enables you to clean up scan ‘scatter’ or imperfections often caused by metal in the patient’s mouth and ensure complete 3D modeling accuracy.
    • Suitable for single scan protocol
    • Create a scan template, teeth, roots and other structures as separate 3D objects
    • Editing only affects 3D images
    • Available for SimPlant® Pro and SimPlant® Master
    • Perfect partner for Dual Scan Module

Dual Scan Module: Dual Scan modality provides an alternative to the single scan protocol within the Editing Module.
    • Register separate scans of patient wearing existing denture with radio-opaque markers and denture alone
    • No requirement for radio-opaque scan prosthesis
    • Available for SimPlant® Pro and SimPlant® Master
    • Perfect partner for Editing Module

Optical Scan Module: If you or your lab owns an optical scanner, the plaster cast can be scanned and, using this Module, the data can be incorporated into your SimPlant® file.
    • Mucosa thickness and tooth dimension data is automatically merged with your planning
    • Scatter-free teeth imagery
    • Secure in-house plaster cast lab scanning

Grafting Module: This state-of-the-art module takes bone and sinus grafting 3D simulation to a whole new level. Instant measurement data saves valuable planning time and a graft simulation can be transferred into a stereolithographic model easily if required. The Advanced Bone Grafting Module is invaluable in dental surgeries where:
    • Bone grafting plays a prominent role in implant placement
    • Patients request full disclosure and visualization of the proposed procedure
    • Implementing time-saving procedures are customary

SurgiGuide: Beyond Diagnostics - SurgiGuide drill guides take SimPlant diagnostics to another exciting dimension. Custom-made stereolithographic (SLA) surgical guides, based on the simulated implant’s exact measurements and position, provide a highly accurate drilling template that fits perfectly and ensures safe, predictable surgery, every time.

There is a SurgiGuide template to suit every proposed case scenario:

Mucosa-supported SurgiGuide drill guides are positioned on the soft tissue – ideal for fully edentulous cases when minimally invasive surgery is preferred. A radio-opaque scan prosthesis is required if a single scan protocol is to be followed.

Bone-supported SurgiGuide drill guides are placed on the jawbone – suitable for partially or fully edentulous cases when increased visibility is needed. Suffi cient bonemsurface support is essential for secure, effective template positioning.

Tooth-supported SurgiGuide drill guides are placed directly onto the teeth – recommended for single tooth and partially edentulous cases when minimally invasive surgery is required. A plaster cast or an optical scan of the cast is necessary.

Immediate Smile®
Immediate Smile is an exciting innovation that we simply had to incorporate into SimPlant® CompatAbility. Using a precise model of the patient’s jaw and the appropriate SurgiGuide template, an accurate prosthesis can be manufactured by a dental technician prior to surgery. So, your patient can leave the surgery after a single appointment with new teeth and a nice smile – an Immediate Smile. SimPlant® technology really is this effective, this predictable. From start to smile.

***Regardless of which SurgiGuide option you choose, you will realize esthetic perfection in a remarkably more time and cost-effective working environment.***
