ScanCode-Anatomical-Healing-Abutment-4Dental implants are a popular and effective choice for replacing missing teeth. However, the success of dental implants depends on a number of factors, including the healing process of the tissues around the implant. Traditional healing abutments are often round or cylindrical in shape, which can lead to challenges in achieving optimal gum tissue contouring.

This is where ScanCode comes in. ScanCode is an anatomical healing abutment that is designed to mimic the natural shape of teeth.

This unique design offers a number of advantages over traditional healing abutments:

    • Improved gum tissue contouring: ScanCode's anatomical shape helps to guide the growth of gum tissue, resulting in a more natural and esthetic appearance.

    • Reduced risk of peri-implantitis: Peri-implantitis is an inflammation of the tissues around dental implants that can lead to bone loss and implant failure. ScanCode's design helps to prevent the accumulation of plaque and bacteria, which can contribute to peri-implantitis.

    • Enhanced patient comfort: ScanCode's smooth surface is more comfortable for patients than traditional healing abutments, which can irritate the gums.

    • Faster healing times: ScanCode's design may promote faster healing times for dental implants.

In addition to the above advantages, ScanCode is also:

    • Compatible with most implant systems: ScanCode can be used with a variety of dental implant systems, making it a versatile choice for dentists.

    • Easy to use: ScanCode is easy for dentists to place and remove.

    • Durable: ScanCode is made of high-quality materials that are designed to last.



Overall, ScanCode is a valuable tool for dentists who want to achieve optimal outcomes for their patients with dental implants. If you are considering dental implants, ask your dentist about ScanCode.
