Longterm Success with Implants #4 - The proper recall: What happens without recall? What has to be done to keep everything stable?
Quintessencial Tuesday with Dr. Chris
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.
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.
The milled abutment for CAD/CAM type II is machined in the Original Medentika® PreFace Abutment Holder in a suitable milling system. PreFace Abutment Holders can be ordered directly from the milling machine manufacturer. You can also obtain information on the use of the Medentika® PreFace Abutment Holder from your milling machine manufacturer.
VARIO gold abutments allow the fabrication of screw-retained reconstructions or individual abutments as the basis for cemented solutions.
They consist of a cast-on gold cap (non-oxidizing, high-fusing precious metal alloy) and a cylindrical abutment for the screw channel (made of plastic that can be burnt out without residue). The minimum overall height of the VARIO abutments allows for versatile use, particularly in cases where space is limited. The shortenable plastic cylinder allows precise, simple and fast modelling of the basic shape.
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.
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.
ART abutments are available in two basic designs, which provide an optimal combination of ease-of-use and customizing options to suit the exact conditions of the patient:
• ART Abutment: compatible with prefabricated SPI®EASY Abutment components for impression taking and temporary restoration for efficient restoration with ART Abutments.
• ART Grinding Abutment: provides a greater volume of material for creating fully customized abutments.
