Straumann Variobase - more than a TI alloy baseBy: Straumann
Andover, Massachusetts – (March 28, 2014) – Straumann announces the extension of their leading prosthetics portfolio with the immediate availability of the Straumann Variobase Abutment. The Variobase Abutment is a titanium-alloy bonding base that the dental laboratory can finalize via their preferred workflow of choice.
Patented* engaging mechanism
Unique to Straumann, the Variobase Abutment design features 4 cams that deliver a precise fit and positioning, leading to an even bonding surface. When bonding the Straumann Variobase and coping or crown on the model, the laboratory can remove excess cement and visually inspect the cement margin. This procedure may reduce the potential for complications caused by excess cement if the bonding is done intra-orally.
The Variobase Abutment delivers an efficient prosthetic solution to the dental laboratory. Precise burn-out copings facilitate an easy and accurate wax-up. No sandblasting is required, saving time for the dental technician.
Steve Sheehan, Vice President Laboratory Division Straumann North America, commented: “With the Straumann Variobase Abutment, dental laboratories no longer need to own a CS2 Scanner to provide their referrals original Straumann abutments with a customized ceramic crown. The lab chooses the preferred workflow to complete the case. The base dimensions are compact, delivering design flexibility for the laboratory technician. The expansion of our Variobase portfolio reflects our commitment to continually provide new products and services that dental laboratories require to remain competitive within their marketplace.”
