  • Design

    For those who wish to buy surgical stents

    1. Send us 3D data of maxillary dental cast. The dental plaster model can also be accepted. The cast must include the palate and leveling has to be completed. If the impression is taken right after the treatment, teeth may move and there will be higher risks of stents not fitting. We recommend to take an impression 2-3 weeks after the treatment.
    2. Send a CT data taken on the same day. The data must include the maxillary dentition and the palate.
    3. Lingual twin brackets must be placed on the maxillary first molars. We can make ones for you but additional charges will be applied.
    4. Send us a rough design of what you wish for us to make. We will design the items based on the plan.

    For those who wish to buy a sep-up model

    1. Send us 3D data of maxillary and mandibular dentition. The dental plaster model can be used. Dental Crowns need to be shown clearly.
    2. Send us CT data as well. The CT data needs to show the direction of the roots on maxilla and mandible.

    The data will be sent and received via Secure SAMBA (Chatwork Storage Technologies, Co., Ltd.)
