Implant restorations simplified, so you can focus on patients.

Simplify the complex process of restoring implants with a completely digital workflow. Dandy provides everything you need to optimize your workflow including seamless x-ray uploads, free scan bodies, dedicated implant designers, and complex case support whenever you need it.

What is a scan body?

Scan bodies are the digital equivalent of an analog transfer coping. They communicate the positioning of your patient’s implant(s) using 3D data points that the lab utilizes during the digital design process.

Just like impression copings, scan bodies come in different sizes and are unique to implant manufacturers. Dandy provides free scan bodies for all FDA-approved implant systems. Our scan bodies are titanium, autoclavable, and reusable up to 100 times.

Frequently asked questions

Does Dandy require implant impression coping?

No, never pay for impression copings or lab analogs again. Digital dental implants only require scan bodies, and we deliver them straight to your office, free of charge

Can scan bodies be reused?

Most scan bodies can be reused. However, some scan bodies like Straumann are single-use only.

How do you sterilize/clean the scan body? Can they be autoclaved?

3shape scan bodies can be autoclaved. Please note that the box cannot be autoclaved. Prior to use, the cleaned scan bodies and associated screwdriver must be autoclaved at 121° c for 15 min, or at 134°c for 3 min.

Is it possible to scan both an implant restoration and a prepped tooth restoration in the same case?

Yes – reach out to the Dandy team to learn more about how this would work with our lab ordering system!

What retention styles for implant restorations does Dandy offer?

We offer 3 different retention methods: Screw retained, cement retained, and screwmentable. Components and restoration materials can be chosen for any of these.

What type of abutments does Dandy offer?

We offer custom titanium abutments, custom Zirc hybrid abutments, and we can manufacture screw retained crowns utilizing custom abutment or tibase.

Is Dandy an Encode-empowered lab?

Yes, we are. The scanning process and case set up is slightly different, since the Encode healing cap functions both as a scan body and healing cap. Reach out to our team for more information.

What comes with every implant restoration case?

The crown, abutment, screw (final screw, not replacement screw), model, and analog are all included when you order implant restorations through Dandy.

Does Dandy do mini dental Implant restorations?

Yes we can in certain instances. If you’re a doctor interested in restoring over a mini, talk to us!

What brands of implants does Dandy accept?

Dandy works with a vast range of implant brands. We do our best to work with doctors to ensure they have the compatible scan body to restore their dental implant.
