Fixation Base

  1. Extract teeth and reduce the bone to the top coronal aspect of the Fixation Base. Ensure a smooth, horizontal plane of bone following the upper plane of the Fixation Base. (FIG. 4) This must be a smooth transition or the Carrier Guide will not seat.
  2. Insert the Carrier Guide to ensure enough reduction. (FIG. 5) Repeat steps 1 and 2 until passive.
  3. Complete bone leveling. (FIG. 6)

Osteotomy Guide

  1. Insert the Osteotomy Guide into the anchored Fixation Base. Use the CHROME Locs to ensure the guide is fully seated. (FIG. 7)
  2. Perform osteotomy drilling according to protocols determined by your implant system of choice. (FIG. 8)
  3. Place implants through the guide if the surgical kit allows.
    (FIG. 9)
  4. Once all implants are seated, remove the Osteotomy Guide.

Carrier Guide
