Elos Accurate®Scan Body

For an Open Digital Workflow

It takes accuracy and precision to create customized dental implant prosthetic constructions. In the digital workflow, the scan body together with the dental library play the leading role in obtaining consistently high precision results.

Perform an intra-oral scan or scan the plaster model
to enter the open digital workflow

To enter the digital workflow, a scan body is required. The Elos Accurate® Scan Body is intended to be placed in the patient’s mouth during intra oral scanning or on the plaster model at the dental laboratory. It doesn’t matter which scanner is used as long as you can open the scan file in 3shape, exocad or Dental Wings.

Correct identification of the dental implant

The scan body is placed directly on the implant, abutment or analog and is intended to identify the exact X, Y and Z axes in the dental software which specify the correct height, rotation and angular situation.
A scan body is a digital dentistry device that is used by both dentists and dental technicians to identify the exact position, angle and height of a dental implant. It is important to enter the digital workflow directly at the dental clinic or, if a conventional impression is made, by scanning the
plaster model at the dental laboratory.

Available for the major implant platforms

Elos Accurate Scan Body is well known and used within the Elos Accurate portfolio as well as by some of the larger implant manufacturers.
Elos Accurate Scan Body is available for implants from: Camlog, Dentsply Sirona, Neoss, Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Zimmer Biomet. For a detailed overview, please see the Elos Accurate Product and Library Overview.

Two versions of the scan body: IO and IO SA


We constantly strive for simplification and we are now streamlining the Elos Accurate® Scan Body portfolio to only one scan body per implant platform and have renamed our IO SA scan body to IO. Even though the name and REF has changed, the physical product is still the same and both versions can be used with the libraries.

IO and IO SA for Nobel Biocare Conical Connection


The exception is Nobel Conical Connection and NobelActive for which we still offer two versions of the scan body for each platform. For situations with no bone overgrowth, the preferable choice of scan body is IO. The IO scan body consists only of one scanning part resting on the shoulder of the implant and can therefore be used for all kinds of constructions; single crowns and bridges, cement-retained as well as screw-retained. For situations with bone overgrowth of the implant shoulder, we offer the version called IO SA, which has its measurement point from the titanium part inside the implant’s connection. This version can be used for single crowns as well as for bridges that are cemented in the patient’s mouth. It is important to be aware of which version that has been scanned when choosing product in Elos Accurate library since there is a height difference of 1 mm.
