Dr. Justin Moody discusses the latest update to Tx STUDIO 5.4
My most powerful tool when treatment planning dental implant cases is the software I use for virtual placement and fabrication of surgical guides. This digital workflow allows me to combine the data I get from my i-CAT™ FLX CBCT scanner and the 3Shape TRIOS® digital impression solution. The ability to merge the CBCT scan and the actual patient’s digital impression is so important for creating natural emergence of the restoration while ensuring the implant is in sound bone for long-term survival and esthetics. Surgical guides fabricated from this information allow for site-specific ideal implant placement, which leads to ideal restorations.
This whole process just got so much better and easier with the release of Tx STUDIO™ 5.4 by Anatomage. In addition to its already existing capabilities for accurate implant planning and extra-ordinary restorative planning capabilities, Tx STUDIO 5.4 also offers new and improved tools. Useful treatment planning and patient communication features allow me to present my case and showcase the technology chairside. This “wow factor” resonates across to the patient in the form of trust and confidence as well as the benefit to my practice by increased case acceptance.
New to this version is the sinus graft feature, which allows for estimated volumetric measurements; this feature allows for more detailed planning and information leading to smoother surgical appointments. Also new is the ability to parallel groups of implants and the placement of virtual pontics and bridges, allowing for more restorative control. This is made easier and more predictable by having control of the abutment design and contour under the planned crowns and bridges.
