When patients cannot afford the full CHROME treatment at this time, there is an option, CHROME Replica.
This service allows the doctor to perform CHROME ‘business as usual’, however during surgery, doctor picks up the RAPID appliance and holds it until the time of prosthetic final conversion. When that time comes, seat, equilibrate, reline PVS the RAPID and send it with the opposing and bite. From this we will make two Long-Term PMMA screw down prosthetics that the patient can wear during the healing phase. This allows the patient to save up for a definitive prosthesis.
It is very important to pick up the RAPID Appliance during surgery. Any other type of transfer, other than the doctor making a chairside RAPID will incur more lab fees, such as iJIG and Printed Try-Ins. This is intended to be affordable for the doctor and patient and is a good alternative for a longer term treatment roll out.
