An upgrade to 3Shape’s Dental System dental laboratory CAD/CAM software permits users to design custom implant abutments using the Straumann Variobase abutment connection.
The software upgrade allows labs to design 2-piece dental implant abutments with the pre-manufactured Variobase titanium interface connecting with a custom zirconia part. The software upgrade integrates Straumann’s library within the Dental System software making the abutments compatible with Straumann Bone Level and Tissue Level implant systems, according to a press release.
The software models the 2-piece abutment with the stock Variobase and the lab’s custom zirconia design which can be either milled on site or sent to a production center. The Straumann library is available now, and dental labs can contact their 3Shape distributor for more information.
