What are Atlantis™ Abutments?
Atlantis™ abutments are a digital implant solution intended to support cement-retained crowns and bridges. Designed in a virtual environment, they are patient-specific that provide an optimal foundation for function and aesthetics. Designed through the patented Virtual Atlantis Design (VAD) software, the abutments support cement and friction-retained restorations and are suitable for all positions in the mouth. In addition, Atlantis™ abutments support corrections pertaining to single, partial, and fill jaw restorations.
One of the biggest challenges our clients face is finding perfect implants. At Dentsply, they place a high emphasis on making their products function well and look natural. Atlantis™ abutments are created carefully to match the shape of the patient’s mouth. As their motto claims, “abutments as individual as your patients,” Atlantis™ abutments reach beyond computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology when it comes to individualization. Dentsply implants are designed for the specific mouths they will be placed in, taking into consideration the fit, comfort, and appearance of the restoration. The surrounding teeth and soft tissue are also factored in for an optimum dental correction. These implants enable the ability to create a unique anatomical shape and emergence profile and allow margins to be placed at the level of choice of the dentist or oral surgeon. With this, long-term management of the soft tissue, restoration support and retention, and easy access for excess cement removal is granted. Biology, anatomy, and engineering principles are combined to create, “abutments as individual as your patients.”
Moreover, versatility and biocompatibility are prioritized when it comes to these products. There is a wide variety of biocompatible materials are available for Atlantis™ abutments, including titanium, gold-shaded titanium, and multiple shades of zirconia.
Lastly, for added convenience, the implants from Dentsply are always delivered with their corresponding screws. The abutments and screws are specifically designed to correspond and match one another’s individual geometry.
Atlantis™ Crown Abutment Versus Traditional Cast Abutment
Atlantis™ abutments are a time and expense saver compared to traditional cast implants because Atlantis™ ones are manufactured from biocompatible titanium and zirconia. They are also produced through a patented state-of-the-art milling process that ensures the highest level of quality and precision every single time for any type of case.
Why Should You Choose Atlantis™ Abutments?
For dentists and clinicians, there is a single-step placement process that does not require cement or modifications. The Atlantis™ abutments are simply screwed in and may be quickly removed for easy retrieval if necessary. Both dentists and their patients find that the design enables optimal support and retention of the final dental correction. Of these implants, DDS Robert M. Humphries has said, “Chairtime has decreased dramatically since I started using the Atlantis™ abutments a decade ago. The Atlantis™ solution also fundamentally addresses implant-borne restorations by taking into consideration the ideal contours of a natural tooth when designing the abutment. After all, our patients are coming to us for the replacement of natural-looking teeth, not the placement of dental implants.”
For dental laboratories, on the other hand, these abutments provide an efficient, timely, and cost-effective solution for restorations. As there is no need for casting or modifying procedures or the use of expensive and precious metals, these are the optimum choice.
Other advantages of choosing Dentsply’s Atlantis™ implant over stock abutments are that they are timely for all involved, allow the patient to choose among a wide range of implant interfaces, resulting in an optimal emergence profile, and are always made using a state-of-the-art milling process.
