For years our practice has been using an integrated workflow with CEREC and 3D CBCT to provide digital implant dentistry. This is accomplished with the in office milled CEREC Guide. The main knock against the CEREC Guide has been the lack of fully guided implant placement.
While CEREC Guide has offered guided osteotomy, it has lacked the ability to place implants through the guide with a truly fitted implant driver. Well that is about to change.
TruAbutment makes a keyless guided implant drill kit specifically for CEREC Guide. It is a series of universal drills designed to fit the ‘S' hole of the guide. TruAbutment also makes metal sleeves that convert the ‘M' hole to an ‘S' hole for drilling. I have been very pleased with the system and have gotten to know the folks at TruAbutment over the years.
Recently, I asked them to make a implant mount that fit the CEREC Guide for my implant of choice – BioHorizons. They were kind enough to oblige and sent me a prototype.
