Intra-Oral Implant Scanning
Implant Specialist Alex Rugh, CDT
Did you know you can use your intra-oral scanner for taking implant impressions? By using the correct scan body, an abutment can be made from virtually any manufacturer including Nobel Biocare, Straumann, Dentsply and Zimmer Biomet. Once you have taken the digital impression, the lab can design and fabricate a custom abutment as well as a printed model with analog in place.
In this video, implant specialist Alex Rugh, CDT, explains the process of using intra-oral scanners for making custom implant abutments.
