Custom Implant Abutments
Vitality Custom Implant Abutments are available in Titanium, Zirconia with Titanium Insert and All-Zirconia to fit your patients’ individual needs. Titanium abutments are commonly used in all regions of the mouth due to their strength. Zirconia abutments provide the best possible esthetics and are commonly used in the anterior with all-ceramic or zirconia restorations.
When you prescribe Vitality Implant Abutments, a natural-looking emergence is designed using 3-D CAD technology and then fabricated using precision 5-axis milling. This precise interface optimizes soft tissue contours and crown esthetics and also ensures excellent gingival health.
Vitality Implant Abutments are competitively priced, and include model work with soft tissue, implant analog and a titanium screw. They are compatible with Astra Tech OsseoSpeed#, Biomet 3i# Certain#, Bränemark System#, NobelActive#, NobelReplace#, Straumann# Bone Level, Zimmer Screw-Vent#, Keystone PrimaConnex# and Neoss#.
Use manufacturer’s tooling to remove healing cap. For multiple units, start in the posterior and work toward anterior. Then, use manufacturer’s tooling to place transfer coping. Ensure components are fully engaged before tightening screw. Take an X-ray to verify proper seating of components. Next, ensure transfer coping does not hit tray. Use heavy body polyvinylsiloxane impression material. Record impression. Finally, when impression tray is removed, the transfer coping stays in the mouth. Remove transfer coping and replace healing cap. For multiple units, start in anterior and work toward posterior. Check fit of impression coping into impression. Send to lab.
Anterior full-coverage crowns require a chamfer or shoulder margin. A circular shoulder is prepared with rounded inner edges or a chamfer at an angle of 10-30°: the width of the shoulder/chamfer is approx. 1 mm. Facial reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm; 1 – 1.5 mm lingual contact clearance. Incisal reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm with rounded internal line angles, and an incisal edge at least 1mm wide to permit optimum milling of the incisal edge during CAD/CAM processing.
Posterior full-coverage crown requires a chamfer or shoulder margin. A circular shoulder is prepared with rounded inner edges or a chamfer at an angle of 10-30°: the width of the shoulder/chamfer is approx. 1 mm. Occlusal reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm: axial reduction (buccal, lingual and interproximal) is 1.5 mm with rounded internal line angles.
Seat abutment. Torque screw into place per manufacturer’s recommendations. Next, use composite to fill over the implant screw. Cement restoration over implant with a resin-reinforced ionomer (i.e., RelyX, 3M ESPE).
