Implant restorations with CEREC: Enhanced range of TiBases for more implant systems
Esthetics, quality and, above all, fewer treatment sessions – thanks to CEREC, these patient wishes can now be realized in a reliable and modern way. The range of CEREC TiBases has been expanded to encompass important implant systems, including those from Dentsply Sirona Implants.
At the 25th Annual Scientific Congress of the European Association of Osseointegration (EAO) in Paris, Dentsply Sirona is presenting CEREC’s enhanced range of TiBases: Together with the corresponding scanposts, these enable hybrid custom abutments and/or screw retained crowns to be delivered in a single patient visit.
With the new TiBases, further implant systems are now supported in CEREC, in particular those from Dentsply Sirona Implants with ANKYLOS® & ASTRA TECH Implant System EV® which, up to now, were not part of the CEREC portfolio. TiBases and scanposts have been introduced for these as well as for BioHorizons (internal connection) and Osstem TS: "These new CEREC TiBases allow dentists to treat patients not only in a single visit, but potentially with a workflow from a single source", explained Roddy MacLeod, Group Vice President CAD/CAM at Dentsply Sirona. "The advantage of this is fewer treatment sessions for the patient and fewer suppliers needed for the dentist."
A base for many CEREC restorations
TiBases form the basis for two-part customized abutments. These can be used for a wide variety of applications: As part of a hybrid abutment, the CEREC TiBase is an alternative to a multitude of standard abutments which differ in terms of gingival heights, lengths and angulations. Hybrid abutments with a TiBase can be used as a screw-retained crown, as a provisional restoration and as a customized healing abutment. They can be processed and inserted directly in the dental practice. Moreover, the dentist has the advantage of being free to choose the material for the abutment to be produced with CEREC. Hybrid abutments with a mesostructure made up of zirconium dioxide boast, compared to those made of titanium, improved apposition on the gingiva and enable better esthetics to be achieved. In addition to zirconium oxide, further materials from CEREC material partners can be used, such as IPS e.max from Ivoclar Vivadent.
Live demonstrations at the trade fair booth
Dentsply Sirona will be present at the EAO Annual Congress with a joint boot for Implants and CAD/CAM. This will offer dentists, scientists and other experts from the dental industry the chance to find out more about the extended product range and also experience the live demonstrations first hand.
