Handling Instructions

Implantation Procedure

Implantation-ProcedurePackaging - A.B. Dental implants are packed in sterile transparent tubes where they remain until required. The implants are protected by a specially designed stainless steel “implant carrier" which both protects them physically, and is also a tool that guides the dental surgeon to insert them in the patient's mouth at the desired orientation. This is done without any direct contact with the implant surface. The carrier is separated by a slight pull in two-piece implants, and in I6 and I7 the carrier is separated by releasing the fastening screw.

Replacing lost teeth with permanent implants requires the following steps:

*Doing X-rays and/or a CT in order to characterize whether the bone is
  soft or hard and how condensed the bone is.
*Preparing a simulation (frequently on computer) of, and planning,
  the restoration.
*Depending on characterization of the bone and the simulation, choosing
  a site for, and the type and dimensions of the implant(s) to be used.

Open Tray Method – Long Screw Transfer (D2)

Handling Instructions Long Screw TransferAfter the dentist has released the healing cap, he sets up the transfers and fastens them to the implants. An impression is taken with the tray until the putty hardens.

The protruding transfer screws are completely released and the tray is removed from the patient's mouth with the transfers embedded in it.

The analogs are attached by the long transfer screws. A cast is performed, and when it's dry the long screws are released and the tray and transfers separated in order to achieve a realized model of the patient's mouth with analogs instead of implants.

 
Closed Tray Method – Short Screw Transfer (D2)

Closed1-Tray-Method--Short-Screw-Transfer-D2After the dentist has released the healing cap, he sets up the transfers and fastens them to the implants. An impression is taken with a tray until the putty hardens. The tray is removed, leaving the transfers in place inside the patient's mouth. The transfer screws are released from the implants and fastened to the analogs. The transfers are replaced in their holes in the intermedian model. The impression is cast, and when it's dry the tray is removed, the transfers are released and the analogs in the new model represent the implants in the patient's mouth

Closed Tray Method – Clip Transfer (D3)

After the dentist has released the healing cap, he sets up the clip transfers and inserts them in the implants. An impression is taken with the tray until the putty hardens. The tray with the embedded transfers is removed from the patient's mouth. The analogs are snapped to the embedded transfers. The impression is cast, and when it's dry the tray with the embedded transfers is removed, creating a precisely realized model of the patient's mouth with analogs instead of implants. The same accuracy of the Open Tray Method can thus be achieved in a user-friendly format.

Restoration Options

A.B. Dental offers the widest range of tools and devices for oral restoration, ensuring that dental solutions can be offered to meet your patient's needs. Prosthetic accessories are suitable for all the implants with an internal hex. The abutments are available in two platforms – narrow (for implants with diameters of 3.25, 3.75 & 4.2 mm) and wide (for implants with diameters of 4.5, 5 & 6 mm). All the abutments are with internal threading, which ensures that the fit will not loosen, strengthens the neck of the abutment, and allows their removal by friction. Due to the precise interface between the implant and the abutment, which are designed to withstand the pressures in the mouth, the result is a very high rate of success of the implants over the years. Prior to the restoration in two-piece implants (I2 & I5), remove the cover screw or healing cap. Complete the screwing motion with a torque wrench (T8) up to 30 Ncm. (If you choose the I6 or I7 abutments with a secondary upper screw, tighten it using up to 20 Ncm.)

Model 1

Model-1Screw type abutments (P6H, P7). The abutments from this group are designed for building a screw-type bridge above the gum line, which is an advantage in the event that the bridge must be dismantled. This group is suitable for non-parallel implants and for 2 or more implants. It is not suitable for single implants.

 
Model 2

Model-2Casting structure (P2N, P2NH, P2W, P9). The abutments in this group are plastic sleeves which allow for casting in the desired form, and easily so, as another option to the titanium abutment for restoration.

 
Model 3

Handling Instructions model3Titanium abutment for restoration (affixed with cement). The abutments in this group come in a wide range of configurations and can be prepared and cast. After appropriate modeling, the restoration device is cemented to them.

 
Model 4

Handling Instructions model4Prosthesis which is released with a snap P5 (ball attachment). The dentures associated with this group of abutments can be placed and removed easily, quickly, independently from the implant, which greatly simplifies comfortable oral hygiene. It is important to properly care for the silicon caps in order to maintain the prosthesis for an extended period of time.
