What is the CHROME RAPID Appliance workflow?

Let’s get into how to order, how to attain a Procera bridge. So let’s go into the first one, which is surgical, a little bit more of an analog technique after surgery. But if you’ve seen this, this product around the world, maybe you’re involved in it. It’s a brilliant way to go to final after surgery directly. This is Dr. Jacob Keefer. He’s one of our serious CHROME users up in the Northeast. And heck of a nice guy with a lot of experience. He’s a heck of a photographer. So I put this slide up on here because he’s just getting into these final restorations. We’re talking about these Procera bridges and, well, anyway, if you’re involved in Chrome, or if you’re not, this is a process, sorry for the, you know, the lunchtime gore here.

But the process is, and this is just real quick in a nutshell, guided surgery where we are controlling the bone reduction, the implant placement, the temporary cylinder pickup and prosthetic delivery all in, you know, a few hours. But what happens is, on the day of surgery, you do two pickups. The top one is the patient’s take home prosthetic that they’re gonna wear. And the bottom is called the RAPID appliance. It’s a second pickup. And traditionally, that RAPID appliance is held at the office, and in six months, the patient comes in and let me stay on this slide. The patient will come in and the long-term prosthetic is taken out. The RAPID appliance is seated, it’s equilibrated, and you could do a reline impression, take a bite and an opposing, and you could go right to final.

You could send that into us, and we would order a Procera bridge for final. And it cannot get any simpler than that. Now, the top prosthetic the patient’s been wearing for the past six months can also be relined, right? The equilibration, the tooth position, everything is already accepted, approved, or we can make adjustments to it here in the laboratory. But the point is that you can send the patient home in something they’ve been wearing, they approved, send the patient home that day in the RAPID appliance, the bottom one and the top one comes to us, physically comes to us in the mail, reline impression, bite opposing. We scan it, we make some tweaks, some design changes if needed, add the molars and we return a NobelProcera bridge. And that could not be simpler. So here’s the first appointment. This is at the restorative part.

First appointment seat the rapids or reline. The long-term prosthetic, bite registration, equilibration bite registration, and send this to us. We do Second, second appointment is a tryin, so Dr. Keefer adds a little bit of pink to these tryins. So they’re just beautiful. Patient even wore this for a couple of weeks. Test drive comes back in. We made the Procera Bridges very simple process, right? And actually, forgive me, I believe the image on the right is actually still the temp. II should have put his final picture in there, but Procera bridges, so very simple process to acquiring a final. There he is start to finish. And the middle one’s a smile simulation, which is also available through us. You know, patients have, have an old worn down prosthetic. I’m gonna show a bunch of ’em here in a minute.

But what are the possibilities of turning over their, their long-term prosthetic into something more aesthetic, beautiful, something that really fits their face. Do a smile simulation. We do ’em all with Prevue. It’s a powerful software to recommend anybody doing smile simulations to go to Prevue. And you basically rent their software and do this, do the smile simulations in your office in about five minutes. They’re second to none best in the world. So we’ve made thousands of smiles with them. There’s nothing like it. The middle appointment where we did a printed try in generally they’re monochromatic. We charge a little more. You can add pink to it. The patient can wear it home. This is a printed lucitone material. But you try it in. And this is a test drive for the final, either just clinically real quick or test drive, but you would try it in. Do a one screw, passivity test X-ray to make sure it’s seating. Go through the normal protocols. Maybe you can visually see and then if there’s any gaps in the tissue, do a reline impression equilibrate. And if there’s aesthetic changes, contouring, that kind of thing, do it then, physically send it back to us. And then we go to final.
