Benefits of the Digital Implant Workflow


By carrying out prosthetic planning, in addition to the implant planning, you can ensure that the implant is properly positioned.


With CEREC Primescan and CEREC Omnicam digital impressions are acquired easily and quickly – even after an implant has just been placed.


The wide variety of materials and CEREC’s compatibility with common implant systems enable you to produce individual abutments and crowns safely and conveniently in your practice.

The CEREC Implantology Worklow

Optically scan the situation with CEREC Primescan or Omnicam, design the crown, and import the prosthetic proposal into the GALILEOS Implant software.

Plan the implant in the GALILEOS Implant software based on prosthetic data and a 3D X-ray image. Finally, import the planning data into the CEREC software. Create a surgical guide with a depth stop tailored to the selected implant and position for a precise fit.

The implant is securely and easily placed in a minimally invasive procedure using a surgical guide.

The virtual 3D model is calculated based on the intraoral scan of the scanbody, the adjacent teeth and scan of the scanbody. Taking all this information into account, the software automatically recognizes the three-dimensional position of the implant.

Use the CEREC software to plan the abutment and crown or screw-retained crown in few steps.

Immediately produce your temporary or final restoration with the CEREC MC X or MC XL Premium Package and insert it precisely in your own practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

CEREC means much more than just restorations. The system falls under the concept of integrated implantology and supports you in implantology from the start. Using the recommended implant planning, a prosthetic proposal created with CEREC can be integrated into a 3D data record so that clinical and esthetic facial points can be taken into account at the same time. Based on this data, users can create both an extremely cost-effective surgical guide as well as the temporary restoration. CEREC gives you and your patients the option of reducing the number of visits.

With CEREC you can place high-quality implants with customized abutments or with screw-retained crowns in a single visit. The process is just as easy as with conventional restorations: After taking a digital impression of the implant using the CEREC Primescan or CEREC Omnicam, the abutment and crown are designed using the CEREC software in a single step. The final or temporary restoration is then milled in the CEREC milling unit – there has never been such a wide selection of materials for this.

  • Biomet 3i Navigator® (parallel walled implants only)
  • Camlog® Guide System (for Camlog Scew-Line and Conelog Implants, not for 3.3 mm implants)


CEREC Guide 2 can be produced fast and inexpensive within your practice using Galileos Implant Software, CEREC Software and a CEREC milling unit.

SICAT and Simplant both offer you various guide solutions for single or multiple implants and in addition to tooth-supported cases also a solution for mucosa-supported cases. You can order your SICAT Guide directly via Galileos Implant for many different implant systems. With each SICAT order, your planning data is cross-checked.
