Time-saving digital prosthetics
New technology from Dentsply Implants provides implant-supported CAD/CAM bars for partial or complete, fixed or removable prostheses. The state-of-the-art suprastructures are milled from titanium or cobalt chrome to deliver a precise and tension-free fit. Dr Mark Willings of Horbury Dental Care and Implant Clinic explains: 'Atlantis Isus is truly revolutionary. It is much lighter a dream to work with. The accuracy is second to none, which gives me confidence of achieving absolute certainty of fit.'
The system saves laboratory costs, on both labour and materials. Steve Campbell, managing director of Ambridge Ceramics says: 'Atlantis Isus is a genuine win-win. It offers time savings for the laboratory, a superior result for the implant dentist, and restorations with no compromises for the patient. The price of a completed Atlantis suprastructure is less than the cost of the abutments alone to manufacture the bar ourselves.'
The Atlantis web order facility provides 24/7 online processing, with a rapid turnaround enabling delivery within one week. Ashley Byrne finds that Atlantis Isus offers: 'Total flexibility and control. I can design almost any type of bar or combination that I want. This enables me to deal with a wider range of complex cases. The state-of-the-art system provides guaranteed precision for the implant dentist.'
