Kaakmeesterz logoKaakmeesterZ, meaning “Jaw Masters”, is located in Hengelo, Netherlands and has recently concluded their 5-day PIC pro training with their new PIC system. The clinic, founded by Dr. Frank Leusink, specializes in general oral surgery as well as aesthetic and reconstructive implantology.

Dr. Abdulhadi Alhelwani, inspired by Dr. Leusink’s scientific contributions to the field, joined the clinic. Together, they lead a team of specialists dedicated to advancing full arch cases using the latest diagnostic tools, treatment techniques, and materials to achieve optimal outcomes.

KaakmeesterZ frequently handles full arch cases with fixed prostheses but has struggled with achieving a passive fit. Despite experimenting with various digital processes, including desktop and intraoral scanners, they couldn't achieve the required precision.

“PIC system was the number one choice for us.”

Driven by the desire to enhance their All-On-X performance and treatment planning, they researched the scientific literature and discovered that photogrammetry, and specifically the PIC system, stood out due to its precision and accuracy. Supported by over 26 peer-reviewed scientific studies, the PIC system provided the rigorously evidence-based validation they sought, prompting them to implement it into their practice.

“One of the best trainings that I've ever had.”

The 5-day training left Dr. Alhelwani and Dr. Leusink extremely satisfied. They finally found a solution that allowed them to achieve a guaranteed passive fit with their prostheses. Dr. Alhelwani described the experience of the passive fit as:

“It's like a hot knife in a cube of butter. You feel nothing when you are putting the screw in the prosthesis and the multi-unit abutments. Absolutely zero resistance. I've never had such a seating before.

Since implementing the PIC system, KaakmeesterZ has seen a notable increase in patients seeking full arch treatments. The system's efficiency has allowed them to treat more patients while still reducing chairside time. Dr. Alhelwani highlighted their top five benefits of the PIC system:

    1. Fast capture
    2. Ease of use
    3. Versatility 
    4. Intraoperative Use
    5. Compatibility with a wide range of implant platforms

“I got golden advice from him.”

The PIC pro training not only covered the use of the PIC system but also demonstrated how it seamlessly integrates into their workflow. Dr. Alhelwani, already proficient with exocad®, gained valuable insights and techniques to further enhance his practice through the guidance of the PIC pro trainer.

This integration of the PIC system resolves their challenges with passive fit and enhances their overall efficiency and patient satisfaction. With a commitment to using the latest innovations, KaakmeesterZ continues to provide high-quality care in oral surgery and implantology.
