The VARIOflex abutment meets a variety of clinical requirements and stands for flexibility in the selection and design of prosthetic restorations.

The VARIOflex abutment can be used for both screw-retained and cemented restorations. Thanks to its slim and solid design, this abutment is suitable for both the posterior and the esthetically demanding anterior region.

The CAD/CAM-compatible abutments can be adapted to the clinical situation and material-specific requirements. The CAD/CAM library offers the selection of different cylinder heights with only one abutment during the manufacturing process. The abutments have been specially developed for restorations with plastic, pressable ceramics and zirconium oxide and offer the best possible support - both for long or high superstructures and for deeper-set implants.

CAD/CAM libraries are available for the VARIOflex abutment. For detailed information, please refer to the corresponding instructions for use.

Electronic instructions for use – VARIOflex - THM611119 


Benefits at a Glance

  • Digitally applicable.
  • Flexible material selection: Plastic, press ceramic, metal and zirconium oxide.
  • Prosthetic variety with one design.
  • Enables high superstructure.

The Titanium Base for CAD/CAM Solutions makes it possible to create individually manufactured abutments. The Titanium Base allows for digital CAD/CAM fabrication.

The Titanium Base data files can be downloaded by your laboratory from the CAD/CAM library on the Thommen website and are thus available to all users of an open-source CAD/CAM system. The 3D data for the Thommen Titanium Base for CAD/CAM are also already integrated into the libraries of various CAD/CAM manufacturers.

VARIO abutments are used for the fabrication of occlusal screw-retained restorations. Restorative options include single crowns, custom abutments, and multi-unit bridge restorations.

They consist of a nonoxidizing cast-on alloy base and a plastic cylinder that forms the screw channel. The plastic cylinder will be incorporated into the pattern and leave no residues after burn-out. The minimal height of VARIO abutments provide restorative flexibility, especially in limited spaces. The plastic cylinder is easy to shorten to the desired height, which guarantees precise, simple, and rapid pattern fabrication.

For all those who would rather not work with high-gold content, castable materials, but are looking for cost-effective solutions on an adhesive basis, the VARIOeco is a good alternative.

VARIO gold abutment for crowns


VARIO gold abutment for bridges


Benefits at a Glance

  • Prefabricated connection geometry and screw seat made of high-gold cast-on alloy.
  • Fabrication of individual abutments possible.
  • Direct connection to the implant, no intermediate parts necessary.
  • Can also be used in cases of limited occlusal space due to the minimum overall height.
  • Available with hexagon for crowns and with cone for bridges.

The 17° angled VARIO abutments are ideal for occlusally screw-retained single-tooth restorations with a pronounced angulation of the implant axis in relation to the planned prosthetics. Smaller bridge restorations are also possible if a suitable insertion direction is considered.

The abutments are available in two different taper orientations with respect to the hexagon to allow for optimal abutment alignment. The prefabricated cast-on gold alloy screw seat ensures a precise connection between the final prosthetics and the abutment.

Instructions for use - VARIO Abutment 17° - THM61136

VARIO Abutment 17° and occlusal screw seat


The 17° angled VARIO Abutment set contains:

  • 1x VARIO screw seat
  • 1x Abutment screw
  • 1x Occlusal screw

Benefits at a Glance

  • Axial angulation of up to 17° can be managed.
  • Two abutment versions for an exact alignment.
  • Prefabricated gold alloy screw seat for optimal precision.
  • Can be combined with existing VARIO Abutments for bridge.


VARIOmulti Abutments offer the perfect solution for the fabrication of implant supported multi-unit, occlusal screw-retained bridge restorations.

Through the combination of straight and angled VARIOmulti Abutments, a restoration is possible in terms of an All-on 4® concept.
The prosthetics line offers a complete range of tertiary parts (impression coping, protective coping, temporary cap, etc.), which permit an efficient restoration at the abutment level.
