Stent / Scan / Plan / Place will soon be Scan / Trace / Place. At ClaroNav we focus on innovation and customer satisfaction and have spent the last year updating our technology to turn a 20-30 minute presurgical preparation into a 2-3 minute process. The result is Navident 2.0 with Trace and Place (TaP). Surgeons will no longer need to do a special, extra scan. They can use the diagnostic scan that they already have for the patient. The stress of stent making is also gone because the stent is no longer required. TaP is a game-changing moment for dynamic navigation. With TaP, the Navident 2.0 workflow is efficient, user friendly and seamlessly integrated into daily clinical practice.
“Trace and place is one of the most astounding pieces of technology I have ever seen. It is a revolution in guided surgery. Much faster to use than static guides and you have the ability to easily make changes during surgery if needed. The work flow for static guided surgery involves dental scans, intraoral scans and STL files, merging them, designing the case, printing, curing, washing and sterilizing the guide. With trace and place the work flow is much simpler: take a scan, plan the case, trace the teeth to align the scan with the patient’s anatomy and place the implant. It gives the best of both worlds. The minimal time of an unguided case and the accuracy of a guided case. It’s a game changer.”
Dr. David Scharf, Periodontist, Long Island, NY.
“Trace and Place is a real tipping point for dynamic navigation guidance. It has streamlined and simplified the workflow in both the diagnostic and surgical phases to allow state of the art technology to be an everyday component of my surgical implant practice. I can’t imagine going back!”
