* What brand/type of implants are supported on the DENTCA-4 system? All major brands of implants are supported by our system.
**Please note the Dentca-4 system is ONLY compatible with bone level implants with an internal hex. Implants must be at a distance of at least 7mm between each other; and a minimum of 4 implants (2 per side of the arch) are necessary.**
* What implant placement angulations are supported? DENTCA-4 uses revolutionary segmented T bars that is are specifically designed to CORRECT the angulations of your implant position. No need to place all the implants in parallel position, nor is it necessary to utilize Multi-Unit or angled abutment.
* Is your system compatible with cone beam/intraoral scanner solutions? Yes.
* If, the DENTCA-4 bars are segmented, does it mean the restoration is weaker? The segmented T-bars will have splinted effect after a final restoration delivered. and provides support for cantilever (22mm limit in length) which gives equal strength to conventional hybrid restorations.
* How much inter-occlusal space is required for the DENTCA-4 restoration? unlike other hybrid restorations, which require minimum 14 mm of space per arch, our restorations are monolithic in nature and do not use denture teeth. They are designed in conjunction with our bar segments, therefore only a minimum of 6.5 mm per arch is required. This will prevent additional osseous reduction during surgery.
* Do I need to perform bone reduction on my patients? Due to its unique design (See above question) there is no need to perform any bone reduction on your patients beyond the usual bone surface smoothing.
* How many implants can I use on my DENTCA-4? 4 to 6 implants are supported, however additional fees will be applied for 5th and 6th bars.
* Is there a specific implant A-P spread necessary in my cases/planning? As long as you have a minimum of 2 implants per side of the arch, the location is not important.
**Please note a minimum of 7 mm from the center of one implant to the next implant is mandatory (for the bars to fit) **
* Can the DENTCA-Temp be used for immediate after Full mouth extractions/immediate implant loading? Yes, it would substitute the immediate denture.
* My DENTCA-4 restoration is not seating all the way. What can I do? Leave the restoration in the patient’s mouth for a week. Recall the patient after time has elapsed and tighten the bars again.
* What tool should I use in order to screw the bars into the implants? Attach the bar screws onto the implants and tighten to 30 Ncm with the screwdriver and manual torque wrench (1.2mm).
* What material is the DENTCA-4 prosthetic made of? We offer two options: Monolithic Zirconia or Monolithic PMMA.
* What is the turnaround time? 3 appointments, 7 Business days between each appointment.
* Can the DENTCA-4 be removed for cleaning? Yes.
* How easy it is to replace the DENTCA-4? We keep digital files of all our designs, so duplicates can be ordered without seeing your patient.
* How should my patient care for their DENTCA-4? Water pick is a must. Cleanups must be done every 3 months.
