Transcript

  • 1. Implant Maintenance Instrument Implacare ™
  • 2. Implacare
    • In this tutorial you will learn:
      • What Implacare scalers are
      • Features and benefits of Implacare
      • Types of Implacare tips
      • Illustrated uses of Implacare
  • 3. Introduction
    • Today’s clinicians have been faced with a difficult dilemma…..
    • Perform Routine Scaling Without Damaging Implants
    • Traditional stainless steel curettes and plastic curettes containing glass or graphite filler can scratch implant abutments.
    • Most all-plastic scalers are too flexible for effective calculus removal.
  • 4. Implacare
    • Implacare, Hu-Friedy’s implant maintenance instrument, revolutionizes the way you perform implant maintenance.
    • With Implacare’s PLASTEEL ™ tips, scaling procedures are performed without damage to the abutments.
    • Implacare was developed in cooperation with periodontist Dr. Roland Meffert, a renowned clinician in the field of implant dentistry.
  • 5. Features and Benefits PLASTEEL ™ tips are more rigid and less flexible than other plastic maintenance instruments. This makes them more superior for removing plaque and calculus without damaging abutments or leaving residue behind. Satin Steel ® Instruments have a light- weight, large diameter handle. The unique diamond texture on the Satin Steel handle provides a secure grip and greater rotational control, even through wet gloves. Paired, disposable PLASTEEL tips are easily secured into the handle using dressing pliers. Unlike other implant maintenance instruments, Implacare’s sterilizable handle is designed for lifetime use.
  • 6. Effects on Surface

  • 7. Implacare – 3 Designs
    • Exclusive Plasteel material allows for Implacare tips to be more rigid and less flexible than other implant scalers.
    • Paired tips are packaged in pouches, ready for sterilization.
    • Three paired instrument designs are available:
      • 204S - Posterior Sickle Scaler
      • 4R/4L - Universal Curette
      • H6/7 - Anterior Sickle Scaler
    204S 4R/4L H6/H7
  • 8. Implacare Scalers
    • Handle and Assembly
    • The Implacare handle provides a secure grip and greater rotational control.
    • The tips are easily secured into the threaded handle using dressing pliers.
  • 9. Implacare Scalers
    • Implacare Scaler in use, 4R/4L Curette design
    • Because the Implacare tips are designed like curettes and scalers, they are easy to adapt around prosthetics (as shown on the left) and are comfortable to use.
    • On the right, the curette design allows for extended reach into the interproximal area to assist the clinician in complete deposit removal.
