We at Biterite firmly believe that one of our most important functions is staying abreast of new materials, methods, tools and equipment, the better to be able to advise and work with you for the best outcome for your patients. So, with that in mind, today’s ‘Let’s Talk About’ looks at Astra™ Atlantis™ abutments.
Atlantis abutments, as you may already know, are patient-specific. They are designed, after scanning of a cast with implant replicas, using Atlantis VAD™ (Virtual Abutment Design) software for optimal final tooth shape. This ensures a natural restorative preparation created with anatomic form and ideal emergence profile. The resulting Atlantis abutment, designed for cement-retained restorations, is compatible with all major implant systems, such as Astra Tech, Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Biomet 3i.
Dental Laboratory London has provided these high-quality Astra Atlantis abutments to a great many dental professionals whose patients expressed great satisfaction with the outcome. Atlantis abutments can, and have been used for both single and partial restorations for all positions in the mouth. They are also very successful in full jaw restorations.
Each Atlantis abutment from Biterite is delivered with its corresponding Titanium Alloy 6Al-4V screw, optimized for the design of the abutment’s internal geometry.
Versatility, an important feature of Atlantis abutments, is demonstrated by the variety of materials available for various applications. The titanium abutment, for example, milled from biocompatible grade 5 titanium alloy blanks, is placed over the implant shoulder and is screw-mounted.
You’ll find that the GoldHue™ abutment with its gold-shade coating, achieved through a thin coating of biocompatible titanium nitride (TiN), provides a warm, aesthetic tone under the gingival. Biterite believes that you will find this abutment ideal for aesthetically challenging cases with thin soft tissue or when using an all-ceramic crown.
The Atlantis zirconia abutment, milled from a solid blank yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystals (Y-TZP), is available in white and shaded, and is one of the few all-zirconia engineered abutments currently on the market. The benefits of zirconia are natural tooth-like colour, excellent biocompatibility and reduced plaque build-up when compared with titanium.
