What are the steps in the a dental photogrammetry restorative workflow?

Dental Photogrammetry Restorative Workflow Steps

The following restorative steps are to enable the capture of dental photogrammetry records necessary to get to a prototype final, a Printed Try-In.

Photogrammetry Restorative Workflow

Workflow Steps Instructions Images
Step 1 Take the following photos with the patient standing up:

  • Full-face full-smile
  • Full-face exaggerated smile
  • Optional: Full-face profile smile
Step 2 Remove the patient’s denture/prosthesis. Seat the photogrammetry scan bodies passively onto each MUA.
Step 3 Perform the photogrammetry scan.
Steps 4-7 are for dentures only. If your patient has a loaded prosthesis, not a denture, go directly to step 8.
Step 4 Seat approved healing caps onto the MUAs.
Step 5 Try in the denture and ensure full seat over the healing collars. Adjust the denture as needed to ensure passive seat.
Step 6 Perform a PVS wash (not Blue Mousse) capturing the detail of all of the healing collars, in occlusion. Remove the denture.
Step 7 Capture a 360° extraoral scan of the denture with the IOS.
Step 8 Scan the tissue and MUAs with your IOS. Nothing should be seated on the MUAs. A PVS impression is also suitable.
Step 9 Re-seat the denture or prosthesis. Capture the following IOS scans:

  • Denture only: Teeth and labial flange
  • Opposing
  • Bite
Step 10 Upload all scans to ROE Dental Laboratory.

Next, ROE will fabricate or provide in-office printing files for the Printed Try-In. The Printed Try-In is a 3D-printed prototype of the final prosthesis.
