For years we have had to face challenging situations when restoring dental implants. Ideally, it would be great to have each implant placed perfectly, but the reality is, there are situations when implants are placed slightly out of alignment. Nobel Biocare’s angulated screw channel solutions provide restorative flexibility and easy handling in these scenarios.
Esthetics and access from a new angle:
The angulated screw channel (ASC) is available for restoring Nobel Biocare conical connection implants and provides a solution to many esthetic challenges that come with placing screw-retained restorations in the anterior. The ASC also improves occlusal access in the posterior and provides the option to place the screw access hole anywhere between 0° to 25° in a 360° radius. This allows you to restore almost any situation with a screw-retained restoration, while also removing known risks that are associated with excess cement.
Furthermore, the angulation allows for the use of screw-retained restorations in the esthetic zone by avoiding a buccal screw access point. This is crucial for these challenging cases in order to maintain optimal esthetics. The angulated screw channel also has a metal adapter, making it possible to use zirconia implant restorations in the posterior.
The Omnigrip Screwdriver is easy to handle and has a pick-up function and grip that is convenient and easy-to-use. The angulation enabled by the Omnigrip tooling helps when vertical space is limited, making it easier to access cases in the posterior region.
The unique design of the tip delivers a strong hold for full insertion torque, even at an angle. This allows you to securely hold the Omnigrip screwdriver, while working quickly and safely. You are also able to reduce screw loosening by applying a torque of 35 Ncm at any angle.
The restorative flexibility that the ASC provides helps improve treatment results while avoiding the complications of cementation. The lab has flexibility to achieve optimal esthetics and function by placing the screw access channel in an idealized location. Try out the ASC, you’ll be impressed with its flexibility and convenience.
