Glidewell Laboratories’ Open Platform Inclusive® Tooth Replacement Solution can accommodate a number of popular implant systems from Astra Tech, Biomet 3i, Nobel Biocare, Straumann, and Zimmer. The expanded solution includes all of the same components as the original Inclusive Tooth Replacement Solution with the exception of the surgical drills required for placing the implant of choice (supplied by the prescribing clinician).
Glidewell Laboratories will provide the prosthetic guide, custom temporary components, custom impression coping, and final CAD/CAM restoration, all designed around the clinician’s chosen implant platform. Additionally, an Inclusive Tapered Implant (with corresponding final surgical drill) is included, as a replacement for the clinician's implant if needed. Clinicians can provisionalize a case with the custom temporary abutment and accompanying BioTemps® provisional crown, or place the custom healing abutment for a more conservative approach.
Either option affords the opportunity to begin sculpting the soft tissue architecture around the implant and developing the future emergence profile—in a fraction of the time that would be required to create custom healing components chairside.
When healing is complete, the gingival anatomy is maintained and captured during the impression procedure with the matching custom impression coping, enabling the laboratory technician to design the natural emergence profile required for a predictable, esthetic result. In the same amount of time it would take to place generic stock components, patient-specific temporization and soft tissue management is provided with this feature of the Open Platform Inclusive Tooth Replacement Solution.
