3. Indications for Use

3.1 Ti Base

Ti Base Abutment is a titanium base placed onto various sorts of dental implants to provide support for customized prosthetic restorations such as Copings, Crowns or Bridges. It is indicated for cement-retained single or multi-unit restorations, or screw-retained single restorations.

The Titanium base abutment must not be modified, and could have options for straight and angulation (up to 20 degrees). This product is indicated according to the available interocclusal space, existing gingival height and three-dimensional Implant position. It is indicated for cement-retained single or multi-unit restorations, or screw-retained single restorations in aesthetic areas installed in the jawbone or jaw. It is open CAD system which is recommended the use of CAD/CAM system using the Exocad® 3 Shape™ or Dental wings®.

COPING/CROWN/BRIDGE CONFECTION BY CAD/CAM TECHNIQUE: 
Use the CAD software, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, when making the Coping, Crown or Bridge. Always finish the Coping/Crown/Bridge before the Ti Base fixation. When you use the digital platform select amongst the 250 Implant libraries which will be provided by us separately - Titanium Base with an appropriate software platform, this way facilitating the interface drawing between the Coping/Crown/Bridge and Ti Base. This library consists of a set of 3D files containing the milling array required for the Coping/Crown/Bridge geometry.

COPING/CROWN/BRIDGE CONFECTION BY TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUE (E.G. PRESSING OR CASTING): 
Always finish the Coping/Crown/ Bridge before the Titanium Base fixation. Place the Titanium Base on the Analog and perform the waxing on the specific castable Coping for the selected Titanium Base. Perform the casting or pressing and finalize the Coping/Crown/Bridge. The Titanium must be used, in laboratory procedures, as follows: Place the Base component over the plaster model and position the Fixation Screw on its, applying a soft tight using the proper Screwdriver. Protect access to the screw throughout the cementation process. The cement handling must follow the manufacturer instructions. Apply the cement in the outer portion of Ti Base and press the fitting Coping/Crown/Bridge according to the guides. The cemented Coping/Crown/Bridge must be pressed over the Ti Base and the excess cement removed immediately. After the cement setting, the infrastructure is unscrewed from the Analog and the surplus cement remaining the Titanium Base edge is removed.

 

3.2 Lab Analog

It is a prosthetic component for laboratory use, made of Stainless Steel 303F. It has a geometry with channels that favour retention on the plaster model. It is available in the prosthetic interfaces most of major implant system.  

It is indicated for use in the laboratory phase while obtaining the plaster model for making the prosthesis on implant, reproducing the dimensions and positioning of the implant or prosthetic intermediate.

Perform the impression of the implant or prosthetic component by using the corresponding transfer and following appropriate techniques. After obtaining the mould, screw/plug the Analog into the transfer used. When applicable, to tighten the screw, use a maximum torque of 10 N.cm. Pour rubbery materials to simulate the soft tissue of the patient. Pour the plaster on the mould, covering the whole Analog. After the plaster phase has setup, remove (separate) the mould from the plaster. Unscrew/unplug the transfer from the Analog.

 

3.3 Model Scanbody / Intraoral Scanbody

The Scanbody is manufactured in high performance titanium_Ti 6AL-4V ELI according to ASTM F136 for Intraoral and Stainless Steel 303F for Model.

The Model Scanbody is exclusively used during the scanning process of a plaster model, with the purpose to transfer to the CAD/CAM software the exact position and orientation of models Analogues. It’s available with specific Screw, can be non-engaging (for bridge; rotational) or engaging (for crown; anti-rotational) in relation to the prosthetic component or Implant fitting. This product is a prosthetic component used to transfer the position of Analogs or intermediaries components during the plaster model scanning through the CAD/CAM technique according each planned case, respecting diameters and components tolerance indications aiming aesthetics and functionality.

Fit the Scanbody over the Analog in the plaster model. Fasten the Screw using the proper screwdriver. Make sure the Scanbody is well fit in the Analog. There should be no vertical or rotational gap. Gaps indicate that the Scanbody must be repositioned. Follow the instructions delivered with the scanner to scanning instructions. If you use a scanning spray, avoid spraying on Scanbody.

The Intraoral Scanbody is a prosthetic component used to transfer the position and orientation of the implant or prosthetic component, according to each case planned, respecting dimensions and indications of tolerance of the implants and prosthetic components, aiming for aesthetics and functionality. This product is used over an implant and/or prosthetic components to transfer their positions during the intraoral scan using the CAD/CAM technique. Identify the Intraoral Scanbody compatible with the interface of the implant/prosthetic component installed. Screw or fit this Scanbody onto the implant/prosthetic component.

Check the fit between the pieces, and make sure there is no rotational or vertical looseness. Looseness indicates that the Intraoral Scanbody is not properly coupled and should be repositioned. Make sure to align the Intraoral Scanbody to the axis of insertion of the implant/prosthetic component, preventing lock-ups and damage to the system. ARUM Intraoral Scanbody’s ‘A line’ provides an indicator to the operator to check for a complete connection to the implant fixture and thereby ensuring more accurate prosthesis. Follow the instructions provided with the scanner used for the scanning procedure; if necessary, spray the region for scanning, avoiding the Intraoral Scanbody, with the spray or liquid for scanning, according to the recommendations of the scanner manufacturer. After scanning, check the alignment between the Intraoral Scanbody and the CAD/CAM library.

 

3.4 Screw

This product is manufactured in titanium_Ti 6AL-4V ELI in accordance with ASTM F136. It must be handled using adequate drivers and connections in table as shown below. The insertion torque values, when applied, must be respected. ARUM Screw does not present contraindications, providing their intended purposes and indications are correctly followed.
