Tanaka Digital Lab: Leading the Way in Dental Restorations

Perfecting the Multi-Unit Implant Scan

Tanaka Digital Lab remains steadfast in its commitment to being an indispensable partner to our esteemed clients. Rooted in our core values, we emphasize extensive research, development, and investments in cutting-edge technology to ensure the most exceptional dental restorations available. This approach enables us to effectively address the current challenges encountered by the dental professionals we serve. With this dedication in mind, Tanaka Digital Lab is thrilled to introduce our innovative in-office digital scan service, powered by the revolutionary ICam4d extraoral scanner from IMetric4d. This advanced technology is specifically tailored for multi-implant restorations.

In cases involving multi-unit rehabilitation and implant restorations, obtaining accurate impressions becomes notably complex as the number of implants increases. Conventional impression methods and implant scanners present limitations that compromise precision. Furthermore, each step in the process relies on the accuracy of its precursor. Even a slight deviation at any point can lead to inaccuracies in the master model, resulting in ill-fitting final prostheses. This inconvenience necessitates the retaking of impressions or scans, leading to wasted chair-time and frustration for both dental practitioners and patients.

Tanaka Digital Lab’s groundbreaking ICam4d in-office scanning service effectively eliminates these challenges in multi-unit implants. The ICam4d employs advanced photogrammetric and structured light scanning techniques to capture meticulous 3D data. Specially designed scan bodies (ICamBodies) with integrated 3D coding accurately determine implant positions and orientations. Our highly skilled implant specialist will personally visit your office to perform the extraoral scan, ensuring precise capture of implant positions.

The scan results are seamlessly transmitted to our lab and provide precise details regarding implant positions, angles, and interrelated distances. The remarkable accuracy of these scans measures within 10 to 15 microns. This system seamlessly accommodates standard multi-unit abutments and is particularly suitable for extensive implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Collaborating with Tanaka Digital Lab allows you to experience the forefront of dental technology through our ICam4d in-office digital scan service. Rest assured, our commitment lies in delivering exceptional solutions for multi-implant restorations, elevating both your dental practice and patient care.

Step 1

Initiate the process by engaging one of Tanaka Digital Lab’s implant specialists as early as possible. Maintaining accurate records of the patient’s existing dentition is pivotal for precise tooth placement and midline determination. Existing study models or dentures serve as suitable records.

Step 2

For optimal implant placement, employing a surgical guide is advised. Tanaka Digital Lab offers precision-fit guided surgery appliances crafted using advanced workflows prevalent in the industry.

Step 3

To schedule one of our highly skilled implant scan specialists, contact Tanaka Digital Lab at least 72 hours before the patient’s surgery appointment. Please note that our services currently cover the following area codes:

Step 4

Following implant placement, a Tanaka Digital Lab implant scan specialist will provide specialized scan bodies (ICambodies) for insertion into the newly positioned implant sites. This step meticulously gauges implant positions and orientations.

Step 5

During the same visit, the scan bodies are removed, and specialized healing abutments (ICamRefs) are affixed to the implant sites. The intraoral scanner can now capture the soft tissue, or alternatively, a rapid impression can be taken and later scanned using a dedicated scanner at our lab.

Step 6

Data from both scans is forwarded to our laboratory and integrated into the advanced Imetric4D scanning software. The ICam4d data and gum tissue scans are meticulously aligned to create a precision dental model that flawlessly mirrors the patient’s oral structure.

Step 7

With the final precision dental model in place, the fabrication of the fixed prosthesis commences. Specifics of this stage are established during the initial consultation with our digital specialists. The precise scan conducted by our specialist ensures a passive fit and, in most instances, a swift turnaround time of one to two days. Tanaka Digital Lab offers a wide array of options for the final prosthesis, tailored to individual requirements.

At Tanaka Digital Lab, excellence is woven into every facet of the process, guaranteeing exceptional outcomes for multi-implant restorations. Join hands with us and embrace the pinnacle of dental technology’s evolution.
