NobelProcera® ASC Zirconia Abutment

NobelProcera ASC Zirconia Abutment

Vision Artist Dental Lab is excited about a new technology that has been developed by our partners at Nobel Biocare. We always look for the best option for our clients, and the NobelProcera® ASC Zirconia Abutment (angulated screw channel) is helping to further the progress of dental implants.  This new way of implants will allow both the dentist and dental labs to be more flexible in the use of restorative implants.  We are looking forward to use this in the future for our products. Benefits:

  • From 0° to a 25° radius, the flexibility of the screw access hole allows more difficult cases to be solved by ASC Abutments.
  • Easy removal and replacement due to the easy accessibility of the screw.
  • Increased productivity in the porcelain veneering process.
  • Customized zirconia abutment in the posterior, due to the conical connection abutment solution with metal adapter.
  • Omnigrip™ Screwdriver is designed to work in tangent with the NobelProcera ASC Abutments

Full Arch Restorations & Denture Conversion Course

Presented by Paul Davidson, BellaTek Digital Dentistry

Sponsored By Dr. David Sarment, DDS, MS, PC and Vision Artist Dental Lab

Course Description

Patients with debilitated dentition often seek rehabilitation to quickly regain their confidence and quality of life. Clinicians can offer a treatment solution for immediate full arch restoration to meet patient demands and expectations. During this program, participants will master a step-by-step, practical approach to deliver a provisional prosthesis on the day of implant placement. The evening program will also focus on the steps necessary to create and deliver the definitive prosthesis.

Participants will learn the protocol for patient care, and how this treatment may improve practice productivity and efficiency by reducing char side visits. The program also includes the step-by step process to convert a loose fitting denture into a fixed temporary restoration.

Course Objectives

Each participant should be able to:

  • Be able to identify patients who are good candidates for an immediate full arch provisional restoration
  • Understand the pre-operative steps necessary to prepare the patient for the procedure
  • Understand the step-by-step process to convert a denture to a full arch provisional restoration
  • Be able to identify the necessary equipment and instruments that are essential for this process

Course Summary

Completely edentulous jaws has become a widespread affliction that most of us don’t realize. Some major barriers for the problem is the perceived complexity and high cost of treatment.
