Premiss for quality –
The passive, tension-free fit of the meso and suprastructures on the osseointegrated implants is scientifically an important requirement for long-term osseointegration of the implants. The SAE spark erosion procedure is the technical requirement for this.
Further information on the relevance of interdisciplinary
cooperation can be found in our brochure
„Avoiding mishaps with implant-retained prostheses".
As the optimal fit of the metal structure is corrected using spark erosion at the end of the dental technicians's work process, interdisciplinary cooperation between the dental practice and the laboratory is absolutely essential.
Together with the universities in Tübingen and Berlin, SAE Dental and Rübeling Dental-Labor have developed verifiable working steps and tried and tested technical procedures of use in the dental practice and the laboratory.
Clinical and dental technician procedures
3 requirements for long-term osseointegration to avoid complications:
- Exact reproduction of the osseointegrated implant position using the abutment position check and the impression
- Consistent shape of the master model construction
- Creation of suprastructures with passive, tension-free fit using spark erosion
Our detailed step-by-step instructions for
interdisciplinary cooperation can be downloaded here.
Planning and process of interdisciplinary cooperation:
- Initial impression at implant level
- Precision impression at abutment level via
- Abutment position check
- Creation of SAE spark erosion model with consistent shape
- Creation of the mesostructure
- Passivation of the mesostructure using SAE spark erosion
- Creation of the suprastructure
