Unlike standard stock abutments which are produced in a uniform shape and size, then cut to fit a poured model of the patient’s mouth, custom CAD CAM abutments are designed on the 3Shape digital scanner and produced in the exact dimensions necessary to mimic the characteristics of the individual patient’s dentition.
The Encode Impression System eliminates the need for implant-level impressions, effectively streamlining the treatment process for the surgeon, restorative clinician, and patient. Rather than exchange the healing component for a separate transfer coping during the restorative phase, the clinician simply takes a standard or digital impression of the Encode Healing Abutment. This abutment is “encoded” with special markings that, when scanned, relay abutment design and milling information. In addition to saving chair time and reducing inventory requirements, the simplified Encode process serves to minimize component swapping, mitigating gingival trauma and potentially helping to preserve soft tissue critical to an esthetic outcome.Available in titanium or zirconia with a titanium base, each patient-specific custom abutment from is carefully designed using the proprietary Encode CAD library for optimal support of the final restoration, a natural emergence profile, and long-term gingival health.
One of the newest restorations available, the Izir Solid Zirconia screw retained hybrid offers an extremely strong, esthetic alternative to the titanium based acrylic hybrid.
Manage challenging cases easier with a cement-free angulated screw channel solution. Have more restorative flexibility without compromising esthetics. Gain easier access: patient comfort and accessibility even with limited vertical space.Available in zirconia for Nobel Biocare implants with a conical connection, theabutment can feature an angulated screw channel of up to 25 degrees from the axis of the implant. The Omnigrip tooling uses a friction based pick up function that grips the screw at a wide range of angles and helps keep the screw in position until it is properly threaded.
On occasion when the angles of implants pose an esthetic problem which cannot be corrected by any other means, it becomes necessary to fabricate an intermediate base, called a “Mesiostructure”, that allows the laboratory to correct angle problems by enabling the cementation of crowns onto this foundation in a very esthetic and secure manner.
