Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner – 3D implant navigation system approved as medical device

Reliable cooperation for implant insertions

With the Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner implant planning software, the cooperation between the dentist and the dental laboratory can be taken to new levels, reconciling the planned aesthetic design of a prosthetic restoration with the planned implant situation (backward planning). Based on digitally merged patient data (such as DICOM data or data from model or face scans), the dentist can determine the optimal implant position in terms of function, anatomy and aesthetics, taking bone structure and set-up into account. The user is guided through the planning process one step at a time, making implant planning an easy task right from the outset and requiring only a minimum of user familiarity with software procedures. With the data transfer feature the data can easily be sent to the dental lab. Here, the surgical guides, the restorations, the custom impression trays and/or the models with laboratory analogues are made. This allows the dentist to receive all components required for an implant case simultaneously (immediate loading). All structures — from surgical guide to the prosthetic restoration itself — can be manufactured using the Zirkonzahn CAD/CAM system. Every step fits perfectly with the existing Zirkonzahn workflow. The open data-exchange feature allows the use of CAD/CAM systems by other manufacturers or 3D printers for the production of surgical guides or models.


Features at a glance

  • Intuitive-to-use software with step-by-step guidance (Wizard)
  • Compatible with DICOM data of any CT/CBCT device; it is possible to track the trigeminal nerve, plans and panoramic section curves with perpendicular sections can be created and disturbing artefacts can be removed
  • Determination of the ideal implant position from a functional and aesthetic point of view, taking the bone structure into account
  • Data transfer function for a reliable data exchange between the dentist and dental technician; at crucial stages during the patient case planning, the dentist’s validation is required
  • Extensive measuring functions: manual or automatic distance measurement
  • Conversion of DICOM data into STL data records for further processing with other CAD software (CAD/CAM STL-Converter software module required)
  • Unlimited import of various scans (intraoral scans, model scans, face scans) or standardised data formats (STL, OBJ, OFF, etc.); fast and correct matching with 3D DICOM data
  • Integrated tooth library with roots for creating a setup already during the planning phase
  • „Best Fit“ option for automatic alignment and matching of different scan data (model scan, intraoral scan, impression scan, radiopaque reference spheres); manual adjustment is possible
  • Extensive implant libraries with corresponding implant-prosthetic components for all common implant systems and a varied drilling sleeve library (individual extensions possible). The libraries are continuously expanded and made available via the automated update system
  • Export of the implant planning for further processing in the Zirkonzahn.Modellier software or another CAD software for planning the prosthetic restoration and models with laboratory analogues. Manufacturing with Zirkonzahn CAD/CAM milling units, with CAD/CAM systems of other manufacturers or with 3D printers possible
  • Creation of surgical guides (only for the Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner full version): the surgical guides can be created either tooth-borne, bone-borne or mucosa-borne and can be fixed with pins
  • Creation of custom impression trays (CAD/CAM Z-Tray software module required)
