Guided Workflow, Surgical Solutions,
and Latched Immediate Conversions
SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED TISSUE REFLECTIONS
UKF (Unilateral Key Fixation) bone seating volume is reduced by up to 80% without sacrificing stability. The buccal only, reduced bone seating area, requires minimal tissue reflection for efficient seating of the base guide. This unique feature reduces the traditional time required for surgery and the conversion process, while aiding in patient recovery with decreased morbidity.
FAST AND ACCURATE SEATING BASE GUIDE
The UKF base guide is fixated on only two 10 x 12mm reflected areas. It is stabilized by a tooth, bone, or denture based aligner for faster and more accurate seating. This extremely accurate, dual verified, bone and / or tooth aligned seating allows for a streamlined and efficient chairside conversion process.
TRUE SEQUENTIAL WORKFLOW
A true sequential workflow allows the surgeon to complete the Synergy surgery without the need to check occlusion. The conversion process is guided by the accurate seating of the UKF guide and not by closing the patient into occlusion by hand with a nose-chin measured vertical. In case of a dual arch, the entire case is surgically sequenced and not converted one arch at a time.
In documented "simple cases", a dentate single arch case (surgery to conversion) is regularly completed in 120 to 160 minutes, while the conversion process is reduced to between 20 and 30 minutes. Dual arch cases are regularly completed with our team in 4 hours or less.
