Simplant dental planning software 

Simplant dental planning software provides the clinician with accurate and predictable surgery options. It enables the clinician to assess the patient’s anatomy and see exactly how it relates to the proposed restoration. The treatment plan can be communicated to colleagues, the dental lab and the patient who will all see exactly what the plan really entails.

Simplant Guide, confident implant placement for all major implant systems

Using state-of-the art 3D technology, Simplant guides are developed, designed and manufactured by Dentsply Sirona Implants in the US, Japan and Europe. We believe in central design and engineering to deliver consistent quality and turn-around time for each patient-specific Guide.

Simplant Guide provides for highly accurate drilling and implant placement:

  • Forms the link between prosthetic driven planning and surgery.
  • Ensures safe and predictable implant surgery. 
  • Allows for minimally invasive techniques, reducing post-operative pain, swelling and healing time.
  • Reduces unpleasant surprises during or after surgery thus avoiding stress for the clinician and the patient.
  • Reduces surgery time.

How to use Simplant Guide 

Tooth, bone or mucosa supported surgical guide

Depending on the clinical situation, you can choose between a tooth, bone or mucosa supported
Simplant Guide:

  • Tooth-supported Simplant Guide 
  • Recommended for single tooth and partially edentulous cases when minimally invasive surgery is preferred.
  • Bone-supported
  • For partially or fully edentulous cases when increased visibility is needed. 
  • Mucosa-supported
  • For fully edentulous cases when minimally invasive surgery is preferred.

Depending on the level of guidance you need during surgery, you can choose between a Simplant SAFE Guide, Simplant Universal Guide or Simplant Pilot Guide.

Simplant SAFE Guide

  • Full drill guidance and implant guidance
  • Need for very accurate implant placement.
  • Brand specific surgery kit.

  • Need for an accurate entry point and inclination with the surgical guide, freehanded surgery completion.

Compatible with all dental implant brands.


Instruments for guided implant surgery and drill depth control

Simplant is more than just software and surgical guides. When your favorite implant brand doesn’t offer you all the instruments you need for guided implant surgery or for drill depth control, Simplant instruments allow you to execute the surgery in a safe, guided and accurate manner.

Sleeve-on-Drill instruments – unique guidance and precision

The guided surgery instruments for Ankylos, Astra Tech Implant System EV and Xive include the unique Sleeve-on-Drill feature that guarantees precise horizontal and vertical guidance throughout the surgical procedure. The “sleeve-on” design simplifies handling and eliminates the need for an additional assistance in holding freestanding dill keys in place.

Universal Drill Key System

The Universal Drill Key system can be used in combination with any brand specific surgery kit. A matching set of Universal Drill Keys is available for most implant surgery kits.

The Universal Drill Keys are compatible with the Simplant Universal Guide. When inter-occlusal space is limited, lateral open sleeves can be used in combination with the Simplant Universal Guide.

LongStop Drill System

The LongStop Drill system provides physical drill depth control for any implant brand. The drills are multiple use and color-coded.
The LongStop Drill system is specifically designed for guided implant surgery, versatility and accuracy. The system covers drill lengths for most clinical situations and can be used in combination with Simplant Universal Guide and Simplant Pilot Guide - LongStop Drill system.

Temporary restoration delivered before surgery

With the Immediate Smile concept, a temporary restoration can be delivered before the surgery. The temporary restoration is used together with a Simplant Guide in one single appointment. Patients can leave the surgery with new teeth and a nice smile – an Immediate Smile.

Immediate Smile Digital 

Immediate Smile Digital is a set of digital export files (.STL) for the lab to create immediate CAD/CAM restorations. The digital export files contain:

- Soft-tissue with prepared margin line
- Abutment info
- Tooth set-up (if available in the planning)
- Antagonist (if available in the planning) 

Immediate Smile featuring Atlantis Abutment

When featuring an Atlantis Abutment, the Immediate Smile concept combines the proven benefits of Simplant guided surgery and the Atlantis patient-specific design into a solution that delivers considerable clinical and patient value.

The Simplant Guide and the Atlantis Abutment and temporary crown are delivered at implant installation and provide perfect conditions for individualized esthetics and healthy soft-tissue. 

And it enables a faster and convenient workflow at the laboratory, when the Atlantis Abutment Core File can be used to CAD/CAM design and manufacture the temporary crown, before receipt of the abutment and before implant placement.

Learn more on the tab Immediate Smile ft. Atlantis Abutment.  

Immediate Smile Model

The Immediate Smile Model is a 3D printed duplicate of the patient’s jaw including holes for implant analogs with the same position and inclination as the virtually planned implants. This model can be used by the dental lab to build a provisional bridge from. Realistic, removable silicone soft tissue is delivered with it.

In addition, multiple implants can be moved and rotated as a group, making it easy to plan according to your design preferences.

Introducing Simplant 17 (pdf)

To better support our clinicians and their connectivity needs, we are glad to introduce Simplant Pro software as the digital planning software receiving our development focus moving forward.

Simplant Pro software saves time and money by allowing you to open (CB) CT images in your office. High-quality 3D images are instantly available and you can have your 3D implant plan ready in just a few minutes.

Contact your local Simplant contact person to check your maintenance status. Simplant maintenance includes free customer support, update to the latest Simplant Pro 17 software and Simplant library. 

With optional modules for importing intraoral data (dentition, opposing dentition, virtual tooth wax-up) ad for importing and merging scan prosthesis data (dual scan method), Simplant Pro adds the key to success for restorative driven implant treatment. And the design and manufacturing time of the Simplant Guide is kept to a minimum. 



The Simplant procedure manual (pdf) provides in-depth step-by-step guidance on how to achieve the best possible implant treatment for your patient with Simplant planning and a Simplant Guide.

Your diagnosis and initial treatment plan will influence all steps that lead to successful implant treatment. Based on a clinical examination, you will determine what kind of implant treatment your patient needs:

  • What are my patient’s needs?
  • Is a fixed or removable prosthesis required?
  • How many implants does my patient require?
  • Does my patient want an immediate restoration?
  • Are tooth extractions needed?
  • Which type of Simplant Guide should I use during surgery?

The Simplant workflow provides a total solution with all-digital connections as well as conventional alternatives.
This allows you to create your own work routine with true prosthetic implant planning and resulting in high-quality
surgical guides.
