Digital Workflow in implantology

CLC SCIENTIFIC’s digital workflow, from data acquisition to production, is completely flexible so that it can satisfy professionals and patients needs. CLC SCIENTIFIC chose to make the digital workflow an open system so that every user can select the digital instrument he prefers. In this way the system becomes modular and closer to the user’s needs.


In the digital workflow every part of diagnosis, treatment plan and treatment is carried out through digital resources. Digital technologies continuous development accompanied by innovation in dental procedures enables to obtain more accurate and reliable implant solutions. Through CLC SCIENTIFIC’s solutions you can take advantage of the benefits offered by the digital workflow: Speed, Safety and Results Predictability.

Predictability and satisfaction of patients needs

The prosthetic achieved quality and aesthetic levels and long term results that can hardly be reached with conventional methodologies. Digital technologies allow to fully comply with patients needs: moreover, through digital design technologies it becomes possible to present the final result to the patient and to discuss with him possible alternatives

Rapid diagnostics for patients serenity

Professionals benefit safe design with predictable results, in addition to lowered treatment time. Moreover, patient’s discomfort is minimized while improving the experience

Planning security

Through 3D datas acquisition, it is possible to schedule safe and accurate implant treatments and restorations. Thanks to an accurate digital planning it’s guaranteed not to damage major anatomic structures.


Initial situation

After the clinical evaluation of the patient’s medical history and the data collection (dental records, scans, TC etc…), the dentist can make a diagnosis and then develop a treatment plan that will meet the patient’s aesthetic and functional requirements. The doctor presents all the possible options to the patient, supporting him during the choice of the most suitable alternative.


Datas acquisition: CT/CBCT imaging

For the acquisition of diagnostic images of jawbone it is necessary to use a CBCT or a CT-Scan.


Implant planning

To define the position of the implant it is necessary to use a planning software that suggests safe and predictable implant solutions to the professional, in order to guarantee the perfect correlation between the patient’s anatomy and the prosthetic solutions. The softwares listed at the end of this section are compatible with CLC CONIC implant and can be used for a safe and accurate implant treatment.


Guided surgery

Implant positioning datas are used during the production of guided surgery guides. After the implant planning, implant coordinates and placement can be used to produce a temporary CAD CAM prosthetic solution.


Implant surgery

Next step is the guided surgery, so the implants placement in selected sites using an individualised guide, that guarantees safe and predictable results.


Digital impression

After the implant’s placement or the osteointegration period, the implant’s position has to be transferred to a model through an intraoral scanner and by using the body implant scan. This is used to obtain the exact orientation and vertical height of the implant.



The desing of the abutment, the bridge or the bar is made using design softwares based on different data formats (3Shape/Exocad).



The prosthetic solutions can be made by the CLC milling center or by indipendent milling centers, using CLC digital prosthetic solutions in order to guarantee the perfect connection between implant and abutment.


Prosthesis positioning

Placement of the definitive prosthesis that will allow the re-establishment of the masticatory and aesthetic functions.
