I can see only one jaw in Simplant
In Simplant Planner or Pro, please go to the “Plan” menu at the top of the screen and select either “Maxilla” or “Mandible”.
In Simplant View, only one jaw can be displayed, so you will need a different file to display the other jaw.

What training do I need to request a CBCT scan and interpret the results?
Most Imaging Centres will accept requests for new dental CT or CBCT scans from Registered Dentists only. The Guidance Notes for Dental Practitioners on the Safe Use of X-ray Equipment provides useful information on pages 61-62.
You should have received sufficient and appropriate training before referring your patient for a CT or CBCT scan. The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCSE) runs a Dental CBCT Course for Referrers which you might find helpful.
If you intend to evaluate the scan yourself (and record your findings in the patient’s notes) you will need additional training, such as the RCSE Basics of Dento-alveolar CBCT Interpretation course. There is also a Postgraduate Certificate in Dental CBCT Radiological Interpretation offered by Kings College London. This nine month distance-learning programme is mostly delivered online, but also includes a block of face-to-face lectures and hands-on training at Guy’s Hospital.
