Our implant application manages the design of custom abutments, healing caps, implant bars and full virtual wax-ups for screw-retained bars and bridges (SRBB), while giving access to a wide range of implant systems.
Open access to several implant systems
DWOS provides access to an extensive range of implant systems that allow design of customized abutments. Additionally, users are offered the flexibility to create their own implant libraries. It is also possible to design custom abutments directly on titanium base systems. This type of implant-base solution is notably affordable and fast to achieve.
Implant custom abutments
DWOS ensures full control of the abutment’s critical parameters: emergence profile, clinical aspect, abutment screw opening, which can be angulated, and screw channel extension. The automatic management of parallel axes guarantees perfect insertion of a bridge over abutments. It is possible to create several groups of abutments with parallel axes.
Also known as healing cap and healing abutment, a gingiva former is installed on the implant during the healing phase to prepare the soft tissues for the final restoration. With DWOS, this device is typically designed on a preoperative model scan on which the implants were previously positioned within coDiagnostiX, as a part of the treatment planning.
Moreover, the gingiva former is easily converted into a custom abutment. Both healing and final abutments can be generated from the same order, thus ensuring perfect correlation of the subgingival shapes.
For implant bar design, DWOS Implants features advanced editing functions that bring highly precise custom results:
Several types of implant bars are available, including: round, Dolder, Hader and milled. Custom profiles can also be created
Each bar segment can be set to a different profile
The bar axis is set interactively
The bar adjusts to fit the gingiva anatomically
Bar pillars can be adjusted in height and angulation in relation to implant axis
Extensions can be created
Implant bar segments can be either on parallel plans or totally unconstrained
When scanning is performed with one of our model scanners (3Series or 7Series), the software delivers a certificate that guarantees the precision.
Screw-retained bridge workflow
With DWOS Implant Prosthetics, screw-retained bridges can be designed using the same easy approach as a regular bridge combining pontics with custom abutments. Watch the video for an overview.
Full virtual wax-ups for screw-retained bars and bridges (SRBB)
Our digital workflow eliminates the arduous need of handcrafting a wax-up. From the scan file with implant locators, the application suggests a full arch wax-up and its corresponding soft tissue. The final result can be a full contour screw-retained bridge or a framework of reduced anatomies.
The elements of the prosthesis (occlusal table, gingiva line and insertion axis) can be easily adjusted. The anterior and posterior sectors can be moved as independent entities for more efficiency.
Integration with surgical planning
DWOS Synergy, that comes with the DWOS Implant Prosthetics module is a communication feature that synchronizes planning and design work between coDiagnostiX and DWOS stations. With DWOS Synergy, experts can collaborate in real time, which helps to speed up work considerably. Watch the video to witness how changes in the implant positioning affects the design options, and vice versa.
