The Patient-Specific Bars approach allows for designing individual emergence profiles on each of the implant connections, perfectly following the patient’s gingival profile. This results in an aesthetic solution, since no metal will be visible in the mouth of the patient. Moreover, it improves the long-term functionality because the prosthetic material is actually enclosed in the small gap formed by the finish line. This avoids the occurrence of micro gaps or chipping of the prosthetic material around the implant connection. This also allows the Dental Team to “reline” the prosthesis to compensate for loss of bone and supportive tissue.
Our designs are endless. We do not use libraries or pre-determined shapes for our structures. All designs are customized to provide a unique structure for the individual patient and restorative team’s needs.
The geometric freedom is achieved with the advancements and accuracy of CNC controlled machining to produce an excellent passive fit, without the shape limitations.
There is not a one-size fits all restorative solution for full-arch cases. We offer overdenture bar solutions for removable patients. We also have options for fixed patients including suprastructures for hybrids, thimble structure designs for individual crowns, or frameworks for stacking porcelain.
Our designers have, on average, 20+ years at the bench. We understand dental terminology and the challenges that the restorative team faces. We are able to take our experience and use CAD/CAM to exceed customer expectations.
