Zimmer® ABUTMENTS

Tapered Screw-Vent® (TSV), Screw-Vent®

Fig. 1

Titanium contoured Hex-Lock® abutments are machined with a sloping collar as straight (Fig.1) and angled (17°, Fig.2) versions. Both the angle and lowest point of the slope coincide with a flat side of the indexing feature (hexagon) of the abutment. None of the abutments are color coded or otherwise marked for platform diameter identification. Abutment screws are trapped at will inside the abutment due to engineering ingenuity and replaceable in case of screw failure.

Fig. 2

Several collar heights are offered for all three implant/abutment interface platform diameters (3.5, 4.5, 5.7mm). The listed collar height is measured at the lowest point of the sloping collar. 3.5mm platform abutments are produced with a 4.5mm emergence profile diameter and 4.5mm platform abutments are available in two emergence profiles of 4.5 and 5.5mm while 5.7mm platform abutments are fabricated with a emergence profile of 6.5mm. Straight abutments are provided with a choice of three collar heights (1, 2, 3mm) and angled abutments are available in two collar heights of 1 and 2mm. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

Fig. 3

Short titanium Hex-Lock® abutments (Fig.3) are primarily intended for posterior restorations. Abutments are machined with a non sloping collar and a collar height choice of 1mm and 2mm for all three platform diameters (3.5,4.5, 5.7mm). The emergence profile expands one millimeter from the original platform diameter and the abutment height from the intended margin for the cementable restoration is 4mm regardless of platform diameter. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit. Abutment screws are trapped at will inside the abutment due to engineering ingenuity and replaceable in case of screw failure.

Fig. 4

Bulk titanium abutments (Fig.4) are machined without collar and may require extensive prepping. None of the abutments are color coded or otherwise marked for platform diameter identification. Abutment screws are trapped at will inside the abutment due to engineering ingenuity and replaceable in case of screw failure. Angled bulk abutments are machined with a 20° angle in relation to one of the flat sides of the indexing feature. 3.5mm platform straight abutments are produced in three emergence profile diameters (3.5, 4.5, 5.5mm) and 4.5mm platform abutments are also available in three emergence profiles of 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5mm while 5.7mm platform abutments are fabricated with a emergence profile of 6.5mm. Angled abutments are fashioned with a emergence profile diameter 1mm larger than the respective platform diameter. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

Fig. 5

Zirconia contour abutments are machined with a sloping collar as straight (Fig.5) and angled (17°, Fig.6) versions for two (3.5, 4.5mm) of the three platform diameters. Both the angle and lowest point of the slope coincide with a flat side of the indexing feature (hexagon) of the abutment. None of the abutments are color coded or otherwise marked for platform diameter identification. Two collar heights (1, 2mm) are offered for the two implant/abutment interface platform diameters regardless of straight or angled abutment. The listed collar height is measured at the mid point between the lowest and highest point of the sloping collar. 3.5mm platform straight abutments are produced with a single emergence profile diameter of 4.5mm and 4.5 platform diameter zirconia abutments are machined with a 5.5mm emergence profile diameter.

Fig. 6

Angled 3.5mm platform abutments are produced with a single emergence profile diameter of 5mm and 4.5 platform diameter zirconia abutments are machined with a 6mm emergence profile diameter. Each Zirconia abutment is produced with a bonded titanium seal ring at the abutment/implant interface, making these stock zirconia abutments unsuitable for bake on procedures. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

Fig. 7

UCLA cast on abutments are fabricated with a machined gold abutment/implant interface and a plastic tube processed on to the gold portion of the UCLA. Indexed (hexed) UCLA's (Fig.7, top row) are available for all three platform diameters (3.5, 4.5, 5.7mm) while non indexed UCLA's (Fig.7, bottom row) are only offered for 3.5 and 4.5mm platform diameters. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

AdVent

Titanium abutments are machined without collar and may require extensive prepping. None of the abutments are color coded or otherwise marked for platform diameter identification. Straight 4.5mm platform abutments are available in two emergence profiles of 4.5 and 6.5mm while the 20 degree angled abutment is machined with a emergence profile of 4.5mm. The angulation of the angled abutment is machined in relation to one of the flat sides of the indexing feature (hexagon). 5.7mm platform abutments are borrowed from the Tapered Screw-Vent® (TSV), Screw-Vent® 5.7mm platform product line. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

UCLA cast on abutments are fabricated with a machined gold abutment/implant interface and a plastic tube processed on to the gold portion of the UCLA. 5.7mm platform UCLA's are borrowed from the Tapered Screw-Vent® (TSV), Screw-Vent® 5.7mm platform product line. Neither 4.5 or 5.7mm platform UCLA's are offered as a non indexed version. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.

Tapered SwissPlus®, SwissPlus®

Titanium abutments for 3.8mm, internal hexagon platform implants are produced as a two piece component consisting of a separate screw and abutment. 4.8mm internal octagon platform titanium abutments are offered as a non engaging one piece construction and a two piece engaging design. Angled abutments are available for both platforms and machined with a 20 degree angle in relation to a flat side of the indexing feature.

UCLA cast on abutments are fabricated with a machined gold abutment/implant interface and a plastic tube processed on to the gold portion of the UCLA. Indexed (hexed) UCLA's are available for both platform diameters (3.8, 4.8mm) while non indexed UCLA's are only offered for 4.8mm platform diameters. Each abutment is packaged with a final fixation screw to make a complete kit.
