NobelGuide™ - the full clinical picture in 3D
Patient selection as well as cilnical and prosthetic chair-side diagnostics, is crucial at the beginning of any implant treatment.
The current status, demands and wishes of the paičent need to be collected and discussed with the paičent. lmpressions are taken, and if possible, a bite is registered to start lab site diagnostics. In cases of insufficiently available support, the bite registration takes place in the next session, with customized bite registration plates produced by the dental laboratory.
Radiographic guide fabrication
The cilnically validated tooth setup is transformed in a radiographic guide. ln this way, the prosthetic targets are ready to be digitized. Markers on the radiographic guide enable a perfect match during the double scan procedure in order to correctly attach the high resolution scan of the radiographic guide to the patlent 3D dataset.
Computed tomography (CT) scanning
With the double scan protocol, both the patient's anatomy and the radiographic guilde are digitized. In this way, anatomical data as well as prosthetic targets are visualized.
Planning in 3D provides the closest representation of the actual patient situation and allows for precise diagnostics and treatment implementation.
With the increasing install base of CBCT scanners, CT imaging is an accessible technology with good accuracy, acceptable cost and low radiation dose. The prliferation and streamlining of the latest CT machinery has increased patient acceptance of CT and CB methodology as a viable scanning technique.
