CT Scan Instructions / Non-Edentulous


CT scanning appliance instructions

If your non-edentulous patient has metal restoration, a CT scan must be performed with a Scan Solutions Scanning Appliance as metal artifacts/restorations can cause issues in creating the surgical guide.

Step 1

Place the metal pin provided through the hole in the handle as shown. This pin will help quickly determine if the patient moved during the CT scan. Paint the device with a tray adhesive compatible with the Denmat clear bite registration material you will use in the next step.

Step 2

Apply the Denmat clear bite registration material that must be used with the kit as shown. A larger amount is better than a small amount. If the bite registration material doesn’t accurately capture the occlusal surface of the teeth, repeat this step.
