STEP 3 – Install the implant library

After the software installation in step 2 has been completed, the Simplant implant library will be installed.

The Simplant procedure manual (pdf) provides in-depth step-by-step guidance on how to achieve the best possible implant treatment for your patient with Simplant planning and a Simplant Guide.

Your diagnosis and initial treatment plan will influence all steps that lead to successful implant treatment. Based on a clinical examination, you will determine what kind of implant treatment your patient needs:

  • What are my patient’s needs?
  • Is a fixed or removable prosthesis required?
  • How many implants does my patient required
  • Does my patient want an immediate restoration?
  • Are tooth extractions needed?
  • Which type of Simplant Guide should I use during surgery?

The Simplant workflow provides a total solution with all-digital connections as well as conventional alternatives. This allows you to create your own work routine with true prosthetic implant planning and resulting in high-quality surgical guides.

Below you find all the latest clinical guidelines to get started with Simplant computer guided implant treatment. Just download the documents (pdf) you need and follow the steps.

Simplant Software

Plan for predictability

Simplant dental planning software provides the clinician with accurate and predictable surgery options. It enables the clinician to assess the patient’s anatomy and see exactly how it relates to the proposed restoration. The treatment plan can be communicated to colleagues, the dental lab and the patient who will all see exactly what the plan really entails.

  • Predictable implant planning, considering surgical and prosthetic aspects. 
  • Comprehensive 3D-communication with the patient. 
  • Optimal team communication. 
  • Predictable results lead to cost efficiency.
  • More precise implant placement with Simplant Guide.
  • Immediate temporary restoration, ready prior to surgery – Immediate Smile concept.
  • Compatible with over 10,000 implants from more than 100 brands, as well as all DICOM compatible (CB) CT scanners and major optical and intraoral scanners.
  • Dental planning software with more than 20 years' experience.

Instruments for guided implant surgery and drill depth control

Simplant instruments allow you to execute the surgery in a safe, guided and accurate manner when your favorite implant brand doesn’t offer you all the instruments you need for guided implant ssurgery or for drill depth control.

Guided surgery instruments

The guided surgery instruments for Ankylos, Astra Tech Implant System EV and Xive include the unique Sleeve-on-Drill feature that guarantees precise horizontal and vertical guidance throughout the surgical procedure. The “sleeve-on” design simplifies handling and eliminates the need for an additional assistance in holding freestanding dill keys in place.

Universal Drill Key System

The Universal Drill Key system can be used in combination with any brand specific surgery kit. A matching set of Universal Drill Keys is available for most implant surgery kits.

The Universal Drill Keys are compatible with the Simplant Universal Guide. When inter-occlusal space is limited, lateral open sleeves can be used in combination with the Simplant Universal Guide.

LongStop Drill System

The LongStop Drill system provides physical drill depth control for any implant brand. The drills are multiple use and color-coded.

The LongStop Drill system is specifically designed for guided implant surgery, versatility and accuracy. The system covers drill lengths for most clinical situations and can be used in combination with Simplant Universal Guide and Simplant Pilot Guide - LongStop Drill system.

Immediate Smile

Temporary restoration delivered before surgery

With the Immediate Smile concept, a temporary restoration can be delivered before the surgery. The temporary restoration is used together with a Simplant Guide in one single appointment. Patients can leave the surgery with new teeth and a nice smile – an Immediate Smile.
