OptiSplint is an innovative and affordable full-arch solution. It is a universal verification jig that can be scanned for digital and immediate designs, and can also be used to create a verified stone cast. The all-in-one device replaces the need for photogrammetry, impressions, verification jigs, and complex stackable guide systems. The scan bodies are compatible with guided, navigation, and freehand surgeries, allowing for all-on-x implant cases without compromise.
OptiSplint uses a combination of traditional techniques and current digital advancements. The scan body allows for intraoral scanning, Cases can be sent directly to lab for same day smile plans, digital wax-ups, and immediate loading. Additionally, the frame included in the kit can be luted to the scan bodies, creating a traditional seating jig for verification.
Seamless Workflow between Clinic & Lab
Optisplint allows the dental laboratory to be involved with the process from start to finish. All records from both the clinic and the restorative dental lab can be obtained kept indefinitely. Moreover, there only has to be 3 visits for the patient, with each visit correlating to a different phase in the OptiSplint process:
Phase 0 - Planning and Proposals
Phase 1 - Immediate Load of Provisional
Phase 2 - Final Prosthesis
Phase 0 - Planning
Phase 0 of the OptiSplint process consists of capturing the initial records and designing the digital wax-up and dental surgical guide.
Scans of the patient’s arches and bite are recorded and kept on file. Additionally, pictures of the patient are taken in a natural smile, retracted, and repose. If a implant surgical guide is being designed, DICOMs are needed.
After all necessary records are acquired, the digital wax-up and surgical guide can be designed. The doctor will then approve or request adjustments before moving onto Phase 1 and surgery.
Phase 1 - Immediate Load Clinical
On the day of implant surgery, the clinic will need to capture and send the following scans:
1. Pre-operative scan of the working arch with fiduciary markers in place.
2. Post-operative scan of the working arch with fiduciary markers in place.
3. Scan of the OptiSplint device intraorally or extraorally.
Phase 1 - Immediate Load Provisional
The overall goal of the dental laboratory is to create an immediate temporary from the approved digital wax-up created in Phase 0.
Using Exocad technology, Phase 1 SOP can be completed through these steps:
1. Aligning Phase 1 scans with Phase 0 scans.
2. Turn the digital wax-up into a screw-retained provisional and merge to MUA interfaces.
3. Print the provisional in the dental lab, or send the STL file to the clinic for in-office printing.
Phase 2 - Final
Phase 2 is the final phase of the OptiSplint intraoral scan bodies workflow. During this stage of the process, barring no major changes to the prosthesis, we want to take the same STL file we used for the provisional. Minimal changes that are required might be made in the design itself without any additional scans. Major changes may require the clinic to take scans of the provisional in place, with any adjustments made.
Save on Costs and Increase Profit with OptiSplint
Chair time and costs of superfluous implant components can be drastically reduced with OptiSplint. All-on-x implant surgeries can be completed in just three steps, helping to minimize time spent per case and the number of patient visits. More patients can be seen in less time, resulting in more profit for the dentist. Additionally, OptiSplint scan bodies replace many of the traditional implant elements needed, allowing for dentists and labs to save on material costs.
