Prosthetics – Digital – Scan Flags

Intended Use

Southern Implants’ Scan flags are intended to be used during the digital impression procedure, in order to obtain the exact position and orientation of the respective dental implant or laboratory analogue, and transfer this position digitally during CAD/CAM scanning procedures. This aids the CAD/CAM software to align the CAD/CAM components to the implant in a digital format.


The Scan flags are pre-manufactured and are available in different connection types. The Scan flags are made from Titanium and is supplied with a screw to secure the Scan flag onto the dental implant or analogue.

Procedure For Use

The Scan flag can be scanned directly on the implant with an intraoral scanner or indirectly on a model. Scan flags are used with digital libraries available for 3Shape, Exocad, and/or Dental Wings. A Scan flag is attached to the implant or analogue before scanning to provide the exact orientation of the dental implant in the software.

Scan Flags
  • The scan flag can be attached to an endosseous implant, and scanned with an intraoral scanner.
Scan Flags
  • The scan flag can be attached to a compact conical abutment intraorally, and scanned with an intraoral scanner.
Scan Flags
  • The scan flag can be attached to a laboratory analogue (direct to implant or abutment level), and scanned with a desktop scanner.
