Scan Body Guide

What is a scan body

A scan body is a digital impression post. It is made from titanium for radiographic verification.  The scan body can be autoclaved for multiple uses. 

How does it work

The scanner captures the geometry of the scan body which provides our software with the exact location of the implant fixture, its timing, and the relationship to the surrounding dentition. 

How can I verify proper seating

An X-ray is the best way to confirm the scan body is properly seated.
