Astra Tech Implants, a division of Astra Pharmaceuticals, introduces the American™ Abutment. This new, gold alloy, cast-to-abutment system is designed to simplify implant dentistry with fewer steps and an installation that follows familiar crown-and-bridge procedures.
The American™ Abutment offers maximum stability by incorporating the unique Conical Seal Design™ which simplifies placement and ensures correct seating. This precise fitting, sealed relationship between abutment and fixture provides superior strength, stability, and flexibility, and ensures the absence of micromovements and micro-leakage. Because the abutment is self-guiding, it can be easily positioned without the need for flap elevation. No radiographic check of the position of the abutment is needed.
