3Shape adds Straumann features

3Shape has added new capabilities to its Dental System that enable it to design two-piece customized abutments using the Variobase abutment connection from Straumann.

3Shape has integrated an original Straumann library within the Dental System software that supports Straumann Bone Level and Tissue Level implant systems. The new library enables dental technicians to use 3Shape's Abutment Designer to model two-piece abutments using a premanufactured titanium base with a customized zirconia abutment top.

To manufacture the designed restoration, the original titanium base must be obtained from Straumann, and the customized zirconia part can be milled locally in a lab or milling center. The original implant and titanium base must be obtained from the Straumann, the company said.

The Straumann Variobase library has been available starting October 1; users should contact their 3Shape distributor for more information on how to obtain the libraries.
