Bellatek Encode Conventional Impression System Workflow

  • 1. Doctor confirms that the encode healing abutment is exposed supragingivally 360 degrees by 1 mm and that the abutment screw is hand tight
  • 2. Doctor radiographically confirms that the encode healing abutment is seated
  • 3. Doctor takes the shade for the patient and selects the crown type
  • 4. Doctor takes a polyvinyl or polyether impression of the arch with the Encode healing abutment, an opposing impression and a bite
  • 5. Doctor ships the records to Dickerman Dental Prosthetics
  • 6. Dickerman dental Prosthetics pours the impressions, mounts the casts with the Biomet specified articulaotr system and sends the Encode cast to Biomet
  • 7. Biomet’s robot scans, drills and secures the appropriate analog in to the cast.
  • 8. The cast is returned to us and we evaluate the implant position, interarch space and angulation. We can then design and have Biomet create a CAD/CAM abutment and Dickerman fabricates the final crown and abutment placement jig. A screw retained restorative option is also available.

Hybrid prosthesis treatment sequence

  • 1. Doctor takes the preliminary impression
  • 1. Lab custom tray
  • 2. Doctor takes final impression
  • 2. Lab pours master cast, fabricates a verification index and bite rim
  • 3. Doctor takes centric record, opposing cast impression, study cast of existing prosthesis and completes shade and mould selection
  • 3. Lab mounts casts and sets up teeth
  • 4. Doctor confirms esthetics and bite relationship
  • 4.Lab makes indexes of the set up to the cast and designs and fabricates the framework
  • 5. Doctor confirms passive fit of framework, one screw test
  • 5. Lab treats and opaques the framework and resets the teeth on the framework in wax
  • 6. Doctor confirms, esthetics, phonetics and function
  • 6. Laboratory processes the prosthesis and returns the prosthesis to the restorative doctor with the final abutment screws
  • 7. Delivery to patient
