Required Records for Implant Planning

CT Scan (CBCT)

Full Arch CBCT of the arch in which the implant is being placed. Ensure that the patient has six or more teeth in the arch. If the patient has LESS teeth or no posterior teeth, then a radiographic guide with markers will need to be fabricated.

The CBCT is taken with the bite slightly open (patient biting on stick or cotton rolls). Files must be transmitted to Implant Genius in raw DICOM format.

Digital Impressions & Bite Registration

Upper and lower intraoral scan with bite in STL format. Please ensure that the intraoral scan does not have any voids and covers the edentulous area of interest.

Patient Photos: Required For Anterior Cases

Patient photos. The patient requires at least two photos:

  1. The full “E” smile. This photo is used to determine the highest, most exaggerated lip line and is especially useful in patients with a high lip line.
  2. Lips in repose, “Emma”. The patient is asked to say “Emma” and hold the “a” with the lips in their most relaxed position. This photo allows the implant planner to determine incisal edge position of the future dentition.

3D Scan (Optional)

Facial 3d photogrammetric scans if available are extremely useful in allowing our team to design the most accurate smile.

CT Scan (CBCT)

Full Arch CBCT of the arch in which the implant is being placed. Ensure that the patient has six or more teeth in the arch. If the patient has LESS teeth or no posterior teeth, then a radiographic guide with markers will need to be fabricated.

The CBCT is taken with the bite slightly open (patient biting on stick or cotton rolls). Files must be transmitted to Implant Genius in raw DICOM format.

PVS Impressions & Bite Registration

Upper and lower intraoral PVS impressions and a bite are required. Do not take alginate impressions and pour up in stone models as alginate is not very accurate in implant planning.
