Going all-digital: Customized implant restorations, for CEREC and inLab


Schaan, Liechtenstein - 1 August 2014

Telio CAD A16 ensures more flexibility and esthetics in the fabrication of implant-supported restorations even at the temporization stage.

The trend towards a fully digital workflow has become ubiquitous.  The last gap in the treatment of teeth with implant restorations is now closed. The new, highly cross-linked polymer block Telio CAD A16 completes the digital workflow to include temporary restorations in implant dentistry.

For the first time, a block with a pre-fabricated interface is available, which allows the direct fabrication of hybrid implant restorations for single-tooth temporization. Moreover, the block enables CEREC and inLab users to create customized monolithic hybrid abutment crowns. The pre-fabricated interfaces in sizes S and L are tailored to the requirements of titanium bases from Sirona. The completed restorations can be directly cemented on the Ti base.  

As a result of the industrial production process, temporary hybrid abutment crowns made of Telio CAD A16 fit extremely accurately. Therefore, the treatment time for both users and patients is reduced. The hybrid abutment crown is easy to adjust and provides a clear idea of what the permanent restoration will look like. In addition, a proper emergence profile can be ideally developed and shaped. The restoration can be incorporated immediately after the implantation procedure or after the healing phase. 

Telio CAD A16 forms an ideal basis for long-term, implant-supported restorations fabricated with IPS e.max CAD Abutment Solutions. The self-curing luting composite Multilink Hybrid Abutment ensures an excellent bond of the restoration to the titanium base. The PMMA block is offered in size A16 and in 6 shades (BL3, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1). Restorations made of this block are indicated for a wear period of up to 12 month.
