The CAD/CAM Ti-Base.
Improved functionality in your patient's prosthetic system.
Titanium CAD/CAM Ti-Base
Our Ti-Base interfaces are produced from premium quality titanium and serve as the connection between an implant and its final restoration. When planning your implant system, the base of the implant is an extremely important factor to consider.
Complications following prosthesis insertion can include such things as loss of osseointegration and/or screw loosening. Causes can be, but are not limited to, poor implant-abutment assembly, unfavorable stress distribution, fatigue characteristics of the screw, and occlusal overload.
In order to achieve a successful osseointegration and avoid screw loosening, we at Edison Medical™ have designed an array of abutment interfaces which allow you to choose the best product according to your specific needs.
Titanium is the most common material used in implant abutments due to its recognized inert and hygienic characteristics, as well as its biocompatibility. Our Ti-Base abutment provides the foundation of a high-strength implant, due to titanium’s remarkable mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and ability to bond to bone. We have undergone a series of compression and fatigue tests to gain FDA approval and ensure optimum strength of our abutments.
Rotational vs. Anti-Rotational Surfaces
The rotational or anti-rotational surface options of our Ti-Bases will depend primarily on the need for retention in restoration of a single tooth. Our anti-rotational connections, primarily used in final restorations, allow for indexed, repeatable placement of the connection in the same position. The rotational (conical) interface, conversely, permits pre-planned multiple restorations and the ability to spin the connection into the desired implant abutment junction position. It also serves as a biological seal against bacteria, as well as any microleakage or micromotions that can potentially lead to crestal bone loss.
CAD/CAM Interfaces: Why They’re the Way of the Future
All of our products in this line are CAD/CAM interfaces, meaning they are compatible with a digital technology that allows dentists to create customized implants for their patients, making the procedure the most precise and specialized possible. Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) uses computer software to design and manufacture the implant prosthesis. This digital form of dentistry is a world apart from the conventional method of taking impressions that every dentist learned in dental school. Say goodbye to the exhaustive list: spatulas, mixing pads, adhesives, mixing bowls, lubricating agents, tray size selection, maxillary and mandibular trays, prepping, and material mixing. No more making patients wait while you take an impression, and sometimes even need to retake it. Nor do you have to worry about the stress that taking an impression causes, no risk of patients gagging and feeling uncomfortable. CAD/CAM is stress free for everyone, with a setup that only requires plugging in your scanner to a USB port. The 3D scanner takes several intraoral images, which are patched together by a computer, and voila – a digital impression is made in a matter of minutes. This digital file can then be sent off to the lab for fabrication. We at Edison Medical™ are always working to provide our clients with the highest quality and most technologically advanced products available on the market. Our line of Ti-Base restoration products will ‘WOW’ both you and your patients – Buy yours today!
What is a Ti-Base abutment?
A Ti-Base abutment is a two-piece, prefabricated abutment made of titanium. The favorable properties of titanium including low specific weight, high strength to weight ratio, high modulus of elasticity, high corrosion resistance and excellent general biocompatibility make it an excellent material for dental implant superstructures and implants. Every Ti-Base is matched to a specific implant system, with various options for collar height, angulation and rotation based on intraoral scans taken using a CAD/CAM system.
CAD/CAM Dentistry system comprises of scan abutment, lab screw, fixation screw and titanium base.
