EZ Stent® greatly simplifies the process of fabricating a precise radiographic and surgical guide for dental implant surgery.
(PRWEB) November 01, 2011
Today AD Surgical and its affiliated company Applied Dental Inc. announced the release of EZ Stent®, the first and only thermoplastic surgical template in the market. Formerly distributed by Straumann AG of Switzerland as the Thermoplastic Drill Template Sets, the EZ Stent® allows the user to fabricate an accurate surgical guide in minutes using hot water alone- no more time consuming lab work using a vacuum former. EZ Stent® has received multiple United States and International patents, and is the Gold Winner of the prestigious Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) of 2007.
“EZ Stent® greatly simplifies the process of fabricating a precise radiographic and surgical guide for dental implant surgery,” said Dr. Brian Tang, inventor of EZ Stent® and President of AD Surgical. “Simply secure the included guide pin in the patient’s model to get an ideal drilling trajectory. Then soften the EZ Stent® in hot water for about a minute until it turns transparent and malleable. Slide it over the secured guide pin and conform its softened base closely to adjacent teeth of the edentulous ridge. As it cools, EZ Stent® hardens into a strong and retentive surgical template that is perfect for dental implant surgery.”
Currently, the EZ Stent® is offered in two versions: the Single-Tooth Set allows accurate preparation of an osseous site in a tooth-bound region, and the Free-End Set allows accurate preparation of an osseous site in the most distal region. Each set contains 5 thermoplastic surgical templates with all laboratory accessories included. Both versions of the EZ Stent® are compatible with all dental implant systems in the market.
