Implant Direct has announced that its SMARTbase abutment has received 510(k) clearance for use with the Legacy™ and InterActive™ systems and is now available for sale in the United States. SMARTbase CAD/CAM engaging abutments combine ideal esthetics for your patients and more freedom of choice with your screw retained restorations.
SMARTbase features a dual hue finish for enhanced esthetics. The gold anodization allows for the use of more translucent restorative materials while the pink anodization of the titanium base offers a more natural blending with the gingival tissue. The concave transgingival profile shapes tissue growth for a thicker gingival cuff, reducing the chances of the abutment showing through and enables subcrestal placement.
Already widely used in Europe and Canada, the SMARTbase abutment supports a digital and conventional workflow. SMARTbase is available in a variety of cuff heights and profile widths. With its “Floating Screw” option, the fixation screw can be pre-assembled into the base prior to placement for easier seating of the restoration.
