2-Piece Straight Guide Post - No Offset
3/32” outside diameter to fit in the 3/32” hole in the cast - 15mm length
The lower portion of the post has 8 flat sides. Configured with 1/16" OD X 5.0mm length post extending up from the rectangular (0.0 mm offset) platform on which various sized removable upper pieces can be placed to orient the Guide Sleeve while the Triad® gel is being applied to fabricate the surgical guide.
The rectangular platform has 4 flat sides representing the mesial, distal, buccal, & lingual surfaces of the tooth.
Use of the 2-piece guide post allows easy removal of the surgical guide when the upper piece of the guide post is removed, leaving the lower piece with the 1/16” diameter part of the lower post with clearance for the removal of the larger guide sleeve in the cast.

All diameter guide sleeves can be used by changing the coordinating diameter of the upper piece of the guide post available in sizes including 3.0, 4.0, 4.5, 4.8, 5.5, 6.0mm (slightly smaller outer diameter, 0.03in., than the guide sleeve's inner diameter)
