Here is another Xive case. Patient’s #6 crown is mobile, at first we thought it was just a loose crown, but as I took a closer look I could see the gingiva move, so the coronal part of the prep was fractured. Which is weird on a non end tooth. Patient did not want to wait for the guide so we took a CEREC scan plus a Galileos scan. The problem is that #6 is there. I have tried taking it out in CEREC to no avail so we just took an aliginate and scanned the stone. The Xive CEREC Guide 2 sleeves, like astra will come in Medium and Large. In this case we were barely just able to fit a medium.
Carefully cut out #6 and mill out the guide with viewing window, Cement in sleeve with super glue
Looks like the cause of fracture was decay. I really like the “feel” of the Xive implant which comes with a cover screw and has an FDA compatible ti base. Keyless system is similar to Astra but a lot easier.
Packed with DirecGen MFDA cadaver bone and Snoasis Placental Membrane. Smily face goes up. Made a flipper just off the stone model and sutured with resorbable sutures.
We will be covering Guided Surgery and 3D Printing guides at our next course in Austin Oct 20 and 21. 3D Printing companies like Envisiontec, Sprintray and Whip Mix will be there and we will be spending two days with hands on printing! Only a few spots left.
