Titanium bar with secondary structure

Besides the digital part, the physical check by our denticians has also proved crucial in this case.

Case overview in short

  • Locator attachments: Zest Anchors
  • Scanner: Shining 3D DS-EX MIX
  • Design of implant position: exocad CAD software
  • Design of bar and secondary structure: open source CAD/CAM software
  • Production of titanium bar with secondary structure: Vamac

A titanium bar and its associated superstructure must be perfectly adjusted to each other to provide the necessary long-term stability. Besides the digital part, the physical check by our denticians has also proved crucial in this case.

Working on a plaster model

The dental lab sent us the plaster model for this case. Our denticians set to work by:

  • making a digital scan of the model;
  • placing a scan body on all four implants;
  • digitising the structure in exocad;
  • exporting the data from exocad and importing the implant positions into our industrial software;
  • designing the bar with secondary structure, including three Locators for extra support.

Industrial software for smarter milling

The design of this case was based entirely on industrial software. Because this software enables technical designs. The bar was designed freehand by our denticians. This particular case allowed a smarter and high-quality milling process.

Subsequent check

In order to check the presence of sufficient friction between the bar and the secondary structure, our denticians repeatedly carried out physical tests to guarantee the final quality desired by the customer.

Our added value for the customer?

Besides scanning the model, we also took care of digitisation, design and final milling. Followed by an extensive and thorough check of the final product before returning it to the customer.

Based on our total expertise in dental and industrial software, we can adapt our approach to individual case requirements for optimum results.
