SimPlant Pro – by Materialise, a sup- plier of treatment planning software, provides a library that continues to grow, with a combination of more than 8,000 compatible implants and abut- ments. It creates surgical drill guides (stents) for effective placement plan- ning and technical assistance. All of this functionality can be easily accessed in the palm of your hand with the new Team-Up! app from SIMPLANT. The app facilitates team communi- cation on SIMPLANT cases and is de- scribed as being an effective commu- nication tool to use with patients to compellingly explain the benefits of the dental implant treatment plan. This application for iPad® not only enables you to share and view SIM- PLANT cases but also helps you eas- ily communicate with everybody in- volved in the process.
