  • NADL Issues FDA Alert Regarding In-Lab Milling of Abutments

    The industry is abuzz with questions and concerns about the FDA’s newest statement on in-lab milling of implant abutments (see NADL alert below). Watch for additional coverage in LMT.

    From NADL:FDA Alert - Labs not permitted to use CAD/CAM for in-lab milling of most abutments

    When FDA began studying the use of CAD/CAM in dental laboratory technology, the FDA’s initial focus was on angulation and the implant/abutment interface. FDA ultimately made clear statements that anyone making the implant/abutment interface is a "manufacturer" as such must obtain 510(k) clearance to do so.

    That still did not answer the questions about the “tooth end” of the abutment, the abutment collar/post. Sometime later FDA ultimately stated a dental laboratory may mill the collar/post as long as the dental laboratory follows the manufacturer's FDA cleared instructions.

    Now, nearly two years later, there is still only one manufacturer that has obtained FDA clearance for their in-lab CAD/CAM...
