One question which came up was “If a person did not use the G-cuff, what would the typical result be?” In other words, what do you believe is the #1 benefit to the product?
Here is the answer on the most frequently asked question. Lately I was approached by an American dental supply company Practicon Dental Supply, and here is my answer:
Taking an accurate impression isn't an easy task, but once it’s taken, it is handled with an extreme care and delicacy. Unfortunately, these cautions are not so effective because when the impression is prepared for making a cast, some important irreversible changes produced. The installation of analogs involves pushing, twisting and rocking. The forces are way beyond what the impression can mechanically withstand. Once the deformations have produced, no matter how accurate we proceed with the further steps, the failure of the restoration is inevitable.
In the last 10 years, numerous studies were done on that subject and each and every one of them spotted problems of accuracy due to transfer impression. There was absolutely no solution to the problem, until we developed the G-Cuff. Now it is possible to take accurate impression without using transfers.
Today, G-Cuff is the only device on the market that allows achieving a gingival retraction around abutments without causing any damage to the tissues or the implants. It is also the only device that creates a 100% dry environment around the abutment allowing either digital clear scanning or accurate silicon impression. Additional important feature of G-Cuff is to create a physical barrier preventing the cements and adhesives from invading the tissue.
Every dentist knows that osseo integration of implants is the only one small part of the task, but the main part of the success depends on preserving the bone and preventing the implant from losing support in the long run. Taking transfers out from the impression process makes it possible.
G-Cuff is a multipurpose implant accessory with a unique size succession that makes it universal and compatible with almost any implant brand and system. Main features include:
