Carestream Dental previews latest technology solution, smop stackable guide for implant surgery

Carestream Dental has previewed its latest breakthrough innovation to oral surgeons at the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) Annual Meeting — an easy, versatile stackable guide solution for use with full arch implant restorations.

This is the latest technology addition to the smop implant planning system from Swissmeda, Carestream Dental’s clinical software and services portfolio. The stackable guide can be designed from a single workflow and the templates easily lock together for user-friendly chairside utilisation; ideal for immediate loading of provisionals.

“The stackable solution is perfect for complex cases that demand high levels of accuracy, adaptability and flexibility,” said Hugo Patrao, senior clinical specialist, dental services, Swissmeda. “With their multiple interlocking components, stackable guides are the reliable, precise and predictable solution for edentulous cases.”

Currently, complex all-on-x cases require multiple appliances that need to be designed and created separately to work together. With the new stackable guide technology, a comprehensive digital 3D design process is used to create an efficient and reliable solution for complex procedures. Through cloud-based planning and design, the interlocking fit of the stackable guide ensures the optimal patient outcome.

Carestream Dental is a catalyst for innovation and continues to expand its portfolio with ongoing investments in solutions that drive practice and partner value and differentiation. The simplicity of smop design software and the ability to create a stackable guide gives doctors confidence to precisely plan and place complex procedures with ease and confidence.
