Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a division of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., has announced the new Hex Lock Contour Abutment.
Designed to work with Tapered Screw-Vent implants, this new abutment helps to simplify the restoration process and minimize preparation time for clinicians and technicians while allowing for optimum esthetics.
The product is a stock titanium abutment with a prepared margin for the Tapered Screw-Vent prosthetic line that mimics the profile of soft tissue, needing minimal modification and providing exceptional esthetic results. The abutment collar is contoured below the margin to create space for soft tissue without compromising strength or esthetics.
This "prepared" abutment is well-suited for cement-retained restorations. It engages the internal hex of the implant forming a friction-fit connection with the Tapered Screw-Vent implant, thereby virtually eliminating micromovement between implant and abutment.
The new Hex-Lock Contour Abutment has impressive versatility. In addition to offering a variety of cuff heights and emergence profiles, it also offers the ability to be used in both one- and two-stage surgical protocols and can be removed for modification at a later date if changes to the prosthesis are desired.
