Edentulous Edentulous Pin Guide is a digital duplicate of the patients existing denture. This tissue-supported guide is used to deliver the Fixation Base. Pay careful attention to the instructions on flapping - included with each case. This is critical to a successful delivery of CHROME.

2 Fixation Base – A rigid guide that remains anchored throughout the surgery. Used to guide bone reduction, support the osteotomy guide and deliver the nano-ceramic provisional. It is anchored via custom surgical drill and pins. This guide floats around and does not contact the bone – a unique and fundamental design.

5 PMMA Prosthetic Delivery Guided teeth are connected to the Carrier Guide via two male posts. PMMA is then luted to the Temp Cylinders via special pick up / blockout material.


6 OPTIONAL - The RAPID is duplicate pick-up used as a up transfer for the final restoration records. RAPID is still available, but has been replaced by the iJIG conversion prosthetic (see CHROME Getting Started to the right) Once the patient is ready for the final, perform a pick-up impression, with tray adhesive on the tissue side, using medium PVS. Send this pick-up to ROE and it will be utilized to transfer all records to the laboratory, and even to design the final.

Notes on preparring for and capturing the CT Scan.

If your patient is dentate, follow the above steps, and capture a CT scan with the patient opened biting on cotton rolls.

If patient is edentulous, and the existing denture fits well and the tooth arrangement is accepted, convert into a scan appliance (instructions page 6). Perform a dual scan using the protocol in our manual. If edentulous patients needs to establish tooth position and vertical, begin conventional denture steps to create a scan appliance.
