Southern Implants has been a pioneer in the top-end specialist sector of the dental implant market since 1987, servicing maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons, prosthodontists, periodontists and general dental practitioners alike.
The Passive™ Abutment allows a predictable passive fit of superstructures in a repeatable way for both milled and cast restorations.
This is accomplished by luting a pre-machined titanium interface into the finished prosthesis, using the laboratory master model.
This product is built on the premise that impeccable fit to the implant (minimizing microgap) is of great importance for longevity of implant treatment. The best milled interfaces result in 15 to 50 micron microgaps.
Passive Abutments can be used with cast or milled abutments and structures, and reduce microgap to less than 3 microns.
The Passive™ Abutment concept allows one to achieve a predictable passive fit of cast structures in a practical and repeatable way and thus eliminates the need for complex and intensive procedures usually undertaken to improve the fit of casting e.g. sectioning and soldering of frameworks.
Passive fit is achieved by luting a pre-machined titanium interface component into the finished prosthesis, using the laboratory master model as the blueprint fit. No additional clinical steps are required.
- Can be scanned directly or used with digital libraries.
- Machined titanium interface with implant (<2µm microcap).
- Passive fit.
