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

Since we constantly strive for simplification, we are currently updating the Elos Accurate Scan Body portfolio. For conical implant systems, we have had two versions of the scan body; IO and IO SA.
We are now streamlining the portfolio to only one scan body per implant platform, and have renamed our IO SA scan body IO.
The name and REF have changed from IO SA to IO but 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 only exception is Nobel Biocare Conical Connection for which both versions are available. So, when should you choose one or the other? For multiple tooth restorations seated on the top surface of the implant the scan body marked IO should be used to obtain best results. For best results on single tooth restorations seated in the conical interface of the implant, the scan body marked IO SA should be used. It is important to choose the same version in the Elos Accurate Library as the physical product otherwise it may result in wrong height of the restoration.
