Healing and Temporization
Inclusive® Healing Abutments
An Inclusive® Healing Abutment is delivered post-implant placement to close the implant connection and aid in soft-tissue management during the healing phase. Healing abutments may be delivered immediately (single-stage protocol) or after an initial healing period (two-stage protocol), depending upon implant stability. Healing abutments are precisely machined from titanium alloy, with a threaded shaft for integration with the internal connection of a seated implant. The occlusal surface of the healing abutment contains a female instrumentation port compatible with the restorative driver recommended by the implant manufacturer. Inclusive Healing Abutments are available in multiple heights to accommodate varying gingival thickness.
Inclusive® Bite Verification Cylinders
Inclusive® Bite Verification Cylinders are indicated for the fabrication of temporary screw-retained restorations. Provisional restorations can be made chairside using any standard fabrication technique. Bite verification cylinders are precisely machined from titanium alloy and attached to the implant fixture or implant analog by a titanium screw or provisional guide pin.
Engaging bite verification cylinders are indicated for single-unit restorations to prevent rotation of the provisional crown. Non-engaging bite verification cylinders are indicated for multi-unit bridges, and therefore permit rotational connection to allow for a passive path of insertion.
Impressions and Analogs
Inclusive® Transfer Copings
Inclusive® Transfer Copings are used to transmit the position, angulation, and connection feature orientation of seated implants when captured in an elastomeric impression. Impressions may be taken with either the indirect or direct technique, depending on the clinician’s preference and chairside conditions. Transfer copings are precisely machined from titanium alloy and attached to the implant fixture by a titanium screw or guide pin. Closed-tray transfer copings are for use when employing an indirect impression technique. Open-tray transfer copings are for use when using a direct impression technique.
Inclusive® Scanning Abutments
Inclusive® Scanning Abutments are used to transmit highly accurate position and angulation data of seated implants when scanned with an intraoral or desktop digital scanner. Each scanning abutment consists of an abutment body manufactured from biocompatible PEEK material, with a captured titanium screw for attachment to the implant or analog.
Clinical Scanning Abutments containing a radiopaque, barium-sulfate material, are designed for chairside use with intraoral scanners. Their opacity on a radiograph allows accurate confirmation of complete seating. Use clinical scanning abutments to avoid the costs and distortion factor associated with conventional, elastomeric impressions. With its comprehensive support for digital impression technology, Glidewell Laboratories provides dentists with a convenient, affordable, effective restorative process for implant cases.
Laboratory Scanning Abutments, available for both red-light and blue-light desktop scanners, are produced from radiolucent material, and are designed to be used with implant analogs on a stone model. Paired with the powerful 3Shape AbutmentDesigner™ module and the Glidewell Digital Abutment Library, laboratory scanning abutments can be used to scan and design custom implant abutments for most major implant systems.
Inclusive® Implant Analogs
Inclusive® Implant Analogs are platform-specific replicas of dental implant fixtures, used in a working model to represent the location and platform orientation of a seated implant fixture. Prior to the casting process, the appropriate analog is attached to each impression coping captured in an elastomeric impression. Because each analog is specific to the restorative platform of the seated implant, it is critical that the analog platform matches that of the actual fixture in the oral environment.
Inclusive® Abutment Analogs
Inclusive® Abutment Analogs are platform-specific replicas of unmodified, prefabricated dental implant abutments attached to dental implant fixtures seated in the patient’s mouth. Each abutment analog is used in a working model to represent the location and orientation of a seated implant-abutment assembly. Prior to the casting process, the appropriate analog is attached to each impression coping captured in an elastomeric impression. Because each analog represents an abutment of specific dimensions mated to the restorative platform of a seated implant, it is critical that the analog reflects the supragingival dimensions of the actual fixture and abutment in the oral environment.
Multi-Unit Abutment System
Inclusive® Multi-Unit Abutments
Inclusive® Multi-Unit Abutments are prefabricated, screw-retained intraoral abutments intended to be connected directly to endosseous implants in partially or fully edentulous patients for the retention of cast or milled bar overdentures. Multi-unit abutments are precisely machined from titanium alloy, and are available with a variety of collar heights to achieve optimal emergence from shallow or deep gingival wells.
Straight multi-unit abutments lack any anti-rotational features at the implant-abutment interface. The apical portion of a straight multi-unit abutment is threaded for integration with the internal connection of a seated implant.
Angled multi-unit abutments of 17 degrees or 30 degrees enable clinicians to compensate for the divergence of seated implants or to otherwise accommodate an angled path of insertion. Angled multi-unit abutments feature an anti-rotational connection interface specific to the matching implant platform, and are attached to the implant fixture with an angled multi-unit abutment screw.
Inclusive® Multi-Unit Accessories
To simplify the restorative process, all Inclusive® Multi-Unit Abutments are supported by the same, comprehensive line of Inclusive® Multi-Unit Accessories. From healing caps and temporary cylinders to an array of copings and prosthetic screws, this assortment enables clinicians to provide a provisional or definitive prosthesis for multi-unit abutment patients regardless of the underlying implant system.
Crown & Bridge Abutments
Inclusive® Titanium Abutments
Inclusive® Titanium Abutments are prefabricated, screw-retained intraoral abutments intended to be connected directly to an endosseous implant for retention of a cemented dental prosthesis. They may be indicated for single- and multiple-tooth restorations. Titanium abutments are precisely machined from titanium alloy and attached to the implant fixture with a titanium screw. For use in any region of the mouth, they contain a standard, circular emergence profile and straight abutment body available in 4.5 mm and 6 mm vertical height options.
Inclusive® Titanium Esthetic Abutments
Inclusive® Titanium Esthetic Abutments are prefabricated, screw-retained intraoral abutments intended to be connected directly to an endosseous implant for retention of a cemented dental prosthesis. They may be indicated for single- and multiple-tooth restorations. Titanium esthetic abutments are precisely machined from titanium alloy and attached to the implant fixture with a titanium screw. Unlike the circular emergence profile of standard stock abutments, esthetic abutments are manufactured with a tapered emergence profile for more natural-looking contouring of the soft tissue at the implant site. Each esthetic abutment is anatomically designed for the connection site’s region (anterior or posterior).
In addition to the standard, straight abutment body, angled abutment bodies, produced with a 15 degree slope to compensate for an undesirable path of insertion are available.
Inclusive® UCLA Abutments
Inclusive® Universal Clearance-Limited Abutments (UCLAs) are indicated for laboratory use to manually create an implant-level custom abutment for a cement- or screw-retained restoration. UCLA abutments are precisely machined from acetal copolymer and attached to the implant fixture (or implant analog) with a titanium screw or provisional guide pin. A plastic sleeve mounted to the abutment provides a castable pattern on which to wax a custom abutment. Plastic UCLAs will burn out completely during the casting process to create a monolithic abutment. For most implant systems, they are available with an engaging or non-engaging connection interface. Engaging UCLAs are indicated for single-unit restorations to prevent rotation. A non-engaging UCLA is indicated for multi-unit bridges to allow passive path of insertion without anti-rotational restrictions.
Screws & Guide Pins
Inclusive® Titanium Screws & Guide Pins
Inclusive® Titanium Screws and Inclusive® Guide Pins are threaded fasteners used to attach implant prosthetic components to dental implant fixtures or implant analogs on a temporary or long-term basis. Each screw or guide pin is precisely machined from titanium alloy and is specific to the system or the restorative platform of the seated implant. The occlusal surface of the screw or guide pin contains a female instrumentation port compatible with the restorative driver recommended by the implant manufacturer.
Titanium screws are generally reserved for the long-term retention of a finished provisional or definitive restoration in the oral environment. Guide pins are reserved for provisional applications, or to attach prosthetic components to an implant analog captured in a working model during laboratory fabrication processes.
