BioDental Modeling Company Signs New CT Scan and Surgical Guide Partners

With the growing acceptance of its BioDental™ models for advanced implant planning and placement, BioMedical Modeling Inc is adding new partners to a growing list that includes C-Dental X-Ray, Inc, with 11 dental scanning centers throughout California and the Harvard Dental Center at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston.

In Manhattan, WP Dental Services is partnering with BioMedical Modeling to provide dental practices with the multislice (MDCT) and dental cone-beam images used to create anatomically accurate models of a patient’s mandible or maxilla. These models clearly distinguish between bone and soft tissue while clearly modeling teeth, roots, sinus features, and the inferior alveolar nerve channel to help both surgeon and restorative dentist visualize, plan, and place dental implants.

The Marotta Dental Studio is partnering with BioMedical Modeling to fabricate custom drill guides. Instead of using complex software to provide a series of measurements from a reference point, surgeons can now drill a BioDental model to show exactly where implants will go so drill guides can be made to the exact position, depth, and angle required.

The use of BioDental models not only improves communications among the surgeon, restorative dentist, and dental laboratory, they are also invaluable in explaining implant procedures to the patients to build a feeling of trust and confidence.

For more information about BioDental models call 1-888-246-6633 or visit www.biomodel.com.
