Welcome to the new generation of titanium abutments

Southern’s SI-BASE range adds versatility to the clinicians armamentarium by providing a full range of customisable titanium abutments.

8 mm Tall Chimney

Laser-marked at 4.5 mm and 
6 mm enabling easy 
modification of the chimney to match the crown height.

prosthetic platform
correction

High Strength Titanium

Enables exceptional
fatigue strength
functionality

Body Variations

To match the ZAGA classification and
placement technique

ZYGIN: Expanding Zygomatic Innovation

Featuring the same body as the ZYGAN® with a narrower implant head, ideal for cases with a highly resorbed maxilla.

 

Product features:

  • A narrow implant head mounted with a narrow fixture mount.
  • A narrow (Ø3.4) implant body enhanced with Southern’s proven MSC surface.
  • Narrow coronal grooves designed to distribute the load in the cortical region.
  • Roughened surface apically providing a roughened surface for where it’s needed most.
  • Narrow apical section making it ideal for smaller patient anatomies.
Technical Facts
  • Available in lengths ranging from:
    • Zygomatic implants: 30 – 60 mm
    • Oncology implants: 27.5 – 47.5 mm
  • Available in diameters:
    • ZYGAN® and ZYGEX: ⌀3.4 mm apex
    • ZYG-55 and ONC-55: ⌀4.1 mm
  • Co-Axis® enabled: available in a 55° angulation
  • Available with a MSC (Machined Surface Coronal) hybrid surface

Surgical Benefits
  • Co-Axis® enabled: available in a 55° angulation
  • Available with a MSC (Machined Surface Coronal) hybrid surface
  • SInergy surface: surface roughened by alumina-blasting giving a moderately rough surface with over 20 years of evidence of clinical success
  • The Oncology implant has a 15 mm threaded apex and a coronal machined surface that can be exposed to soft tissue in oncology resections
  • The ZYGAN® implant features a narrow apex with a smooth mid-section and MSC threaded coronal region. The ZYGAN® is perfect for patients with smaller anatomy
  • The ZYGEX implant offers the same machined area with a narrower apex of 3.4 mm (threaded body diameter)
  • Pure high strength titanium enables exceptional fatigue strength (>920 MPa)
  • Machined sections for exposed soft tissue and decreased rotations
Prosthetic Benefits
  • Classic, trusted connections with sought-after modern features
  • Forgiving interface for implant divergence
