Procera Laser Scanner
Since getting the latest generation NobelBiocare Procera Laser Scanner two and a half years ago, we have been making custom abutments on all of the dental implants we have placed. With custom abutments, optimal contours and tissue emergence profile is achieved, far beyond what is possible with stock abutments.
The Key Benefit of the System
The scanner also has the ability to scan an entire arch, and we do it in a three stage manner. First the implant positions are scanned, then the soft tissue contours are scanned over the implant positions and finally a diagnostic waxup of the final positions of the teeth is added. By doing all of this, we are able to design the bars within the shape of the final prosthesis--whether it is a bar around which an All-on-4 fixed prosthesis is to be processed or an overdenture tissue bar such as this one, to which the denture will snap into the locator attachments incorporated in the bar.
We have found that the finest and most current computer technology enables us to provide the most accurate and durable prostheses for our patients.
