Following an agreement between DENTSPLY Implants and Align Technology, laboratories offering ATLANTIS patient-specific abutments can order them based upon scans from the iTero intraoral scanner starting in the second half of 2014. “Moving forward in this expanding area of digital dentistry, dental scanning is a strategic business opportunity and, more importantly, we are creating added value for our customers and their patients,” said Mikael Sander, Group Vice President ATLANTIS Digital Implant Solutions, DENTSPLY Implants.
DENTSPLY Implants also presented the ASTRA TECH Implant System EV, designed with a site-specific, crown-down approach based on the natural dentition for increased surgical simplicity and flexibility and restorative ease. This philosophy is supported by features such as a unique interface with one-position-only placement of ATLANTIS patient-specific abutments.
The foundation of the system remains the ASTRA TECH Implant System BioManagement Complex—a combination of four key features: the OsseoSpeed surface, MicroThread, Conical Seal Design and Connective Contour—well documented for its long-term marginal bone maintenance and esthetic results.
