A screw-retained designed fabrication is a crown and abutment that has been cement or fused together to create a one piece prosthesis that will easily insert into the implant fixture with a screw hole that’s accessible out of the occlusal table. NOTE: IDOC defaults to cement retained fabrications unless specified, therefore, if you want screw retain, please write “screw retained” on the lab slip. *The term “Screwmentable” is designated to crowns with an access hole that is cemented to a separate abutment.
Casting abutments have been a fan favorite for quite some time. IDOC will cast a custom piece abutment using a Casting gold adapted sleeve and then fabricate a custom crown or bridge on the structure. This is a screw retained restoration. The Casting abutment can also be casted as a cement retained abutment with a separate crown.
IDOC can mill a customized titanium or zirconia abutment in house or, if requested, we can order a genuine custom abutments from one of the many implant manufacturing partners we work with including Nobel Biocare, Straumann, Atlantis, and Zimmer.
For our more traditional implant option, IDOC can cast metal on a modified stock abutment. Once the stock abutments are modified, our tech will wax and cast a structure and then apply porcelain for a perfect and gorgeous finish.
We offer ASC crowns and abutments from Nobel Biocare, Atlantis and TruAbutment. Contact our implant department to get you set up with the correct drivers for these systems.
