Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2012
Glidewell Laboratories announced today the launch of the Inclusive® Tooth Replacement Solution. This all-in-one implant treatment package is the first to include the complete set of intraoral components a clinician needs to restore a missing tooth. Featuring the unprecedented use of prefabricated custom temporary components for patient-specific soft tissue management that begins at implant placement, this simple, convenient solution is intended to offer an effective, streamlined process covering surgical, temporary and final restorative phases — resulting in a predictable outcome. Comprehensively priced, it also eliminates variable fees traditionally associated with implant treatment, allowing the clinician to determine total treatment costs up front.
“The Inclusive Tooth Replacement Solution is the first truly restorative-driven approach for dental implant treatment,” said Dave Casper, Vice President of Sales & Business Development at Glidewell Laboratories. “By integrating our implant manufacturing expertise with our laboratory services, we are able to produce custom components for each step of the restorative phase of treatment — and deliver them in advance, all in one box.”
The solution features a simplified workflow intended to address planning, communication and component issues known to complicate implant cases between the surgical and restorative phases. From full-arch impressions, Glidewell Laboratories fabricates a prosthetic drilling guide to suggest the ideal placement of the implant for achieving restorative success, a custom temporary abutment with tooth-specific contours, and a BioTemps® provisional crown to immediately train the soft tissue to support an appropriate emergence profile. For cases where the implant cannot be immediately temporized, a custom healing abutment is included to train the soft tissue without loading the implant. Also included is a matching custom impression coping that allows for accurate communication of the implant position and soft tissue contours to the laboratory, which is critical to the design of an esthetic restoration. All of this is delivered to the clinician with the Inclusive® Tapered Implant of choice and corresponding surgical drills. When it’s time for the definitive restoration, the clinician takes an implant-level impression using the custom impression coping and sends it to Glidewell, where it is used to fabricate a final Inclusive® Custom Abutment (titanium or zirconia) and BruxZir® Solid Zirconia or IPS e.max® crown. These final restorative components are also included in the package price.
“This solution was designed based on CEO Jim Glidewell’s stated mission of reducing the cost of dentistry so more patients can receive care,” said Glidewell Chief Operations Officer Greg Minzenmayer. “The experience we have gained through restoring more than 160,000 implant cases uniquely positions us to offer a single-source, restorative-driven approach to implant treatment, with a total solution that makes implant dentistry more predictable, precise and affordable.”
The precision inherent in the Inclusive Tooth Replacement Solution stems in large part from the use of predesigned custom temporary components to provide patient-specific temporization and contoured healing. Soft tissue management of this nature better prepares the site for the final esthetic outcome, and is an exclusive feature of the Inclusive Tooth Replacement Solution. While techniques exist for the fabrication of custom temporary and impression components chairside, clinicians seeking to maximize clinical efficiencies and reduce chairtime will appreciate the convenience of having these digitally designed components arrive prepackaged and ready for placement, in the same manner as stock components.
