CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (BUSINESS WIRE)--Astra Tech, a leader and innovator in dental implants, has announced the availability of the Atlantis Abutment in Zirconia for Astra Tech OsseoSpeed 3.5/4.0 (small implant-abutment connection size with aqua color-coding) and 4.5/5.0 (large implant-abutment connection size with lilac color-coding) implants.
In addition, the emergence profile of Atlantis Abutments for Astra Tech OsseoSpeed implants begins close to the implant interface so that, even in cases with minimal soft tissue, optimal esthetic results can be achieved. The conical shape extends past the implant shoulder to create a tight seal at the implant/abutment junction.
With its recent acquisition of Atlantis Components Inc., Astra Tech expands the restorative possibilities for implants with a wide offering of abutments. Astra Tech OsseoSpeed implants offer the choice of both one- and two-stage protocols so that restoring Astra Tech implant cases with Atlantis Abutments gives both surgical and restorative flexibility.
Placement of the implant shoulder at the level of the bone provides a subgingival platform that allows for the optimal design of the Atlantis Abutment emergence profile.
Atlantis' highly sophisticated, proprietary computerized process designs and manufactures abutments to each patient's needs and specifications. Clinicians can select the optimal abutment that best supports the emergence profile and esthetics necessary for the individual case. Atlantis Abutments are also available in either titanium or Atlantis GoldHue for all sizes of Astra Tech OsseoSpeed implants.
Rigorous independent testing proves the Atlantis Abutment in Zirconia, manufactured from yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystals (Y-TZP), to be the strongest patient-specific zirconia abutment currently available. Atlantis' engineered designs ensure a precise fit within the implant.
Elimination of the metal core, common to other internal connection zirconia abutments, provides the highest level of strength and reliability. Now every dental professional can utilize Atlantis' highly esthetic solution for every Astra Tech implant restoration.
