Custom-made titanium abutments produced in your own laboratory – with inLab MC X5 from Dentsply Sirona

Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM is extending the range of applications of its 5-axis milling unit inLab MC X5, with the production of custom-made one-piece titanium abutments with prefabricated connection geometries in authorized countries. With the latest version of the inLab Software 16.0, inLab users can now create implant supported prostheses that are even more closely matched to the individual needs of the patient.

Bensheim/Salzburg. Practitioners who are not prepared to accept any compromises in prosthesis quality turn to custom-made abutments. These enable the creation of a tailor-made implant abutment  for the individual patient, thereby making special allowances for the specific implant situation. In addition, they offer dental technicians an even better basis than standard abutments for the creation of a functional and esthetically pleasing dental prosthesis.

With the latest inLab software update 16.0 from Dentsply Sirona, inLab users can now design and mill custom-made one-piece titanium abutments in their own labs. With the 5-axis milling unit inLab MC X5, for the first time it is now possible, not only to manufacture  restorations from inLab design data but also take  design data from  another CAD software via the open inLab CAM interface. The one-piece abutments are machined from PreFace® abutment blanks from Medentika with prefabricated connection geometries.

Advantages for the dental lab

One major advantage for the dental laboratory is in the characteristics of the one-piece solution: although partially ceramic hybrid abutments on TiBases create optimum esthetic results, only one-piece solutions are possible in certain clinical cases due to a lack of space, for example. The custom-made one-piece titanium abutment is the perfect solution in such cases, without requiring an additional jointing step.

Moreover, inLab users can seamlessly proceed with the workflow and, in parallel to the milling process, virtually implant the designed abutment with the inLab CAD software so that further prosthetic treatment can be planned. This means that production control and the added value remain in the lab.

Preform starter kit for inLab MC X5

The prerequisite for the milling of titanium preforms is the new inLab MC X5 starter kit for Medentika PreFace abutments from Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM. This comprehensive kit can be ordered from dealers in all authorized countries. It contains, for example, a preform holder that has been specially developed for inLab MC X5, new inLab MC X5 titanium milling tools, a special cooling lubricant additive (DentaLub), separate container tank and other accessories. PreFace® titanium abutment blanks can be exclusively ordered from Medentika.
