The implant industry is ever increasing; and as demand goes up, so will the need for better systems so that the perceived obstacles associated with making fixture level impressions are eased. It is the main reason why, to date, one third of general practitioners do not routinely offer implant restoration services.
Town and Country is proud to offer a product from the 3i Corporation that allows you to complete an implant case with just one impression without using any additional hardware components. The Encode™ system is an excellent option for surgical dentists who wish to promote implant restorative dentistry to those among their referral base who are not familiar or not comfortable with implant dentistry.
The proprietary technology of Encode™ is characterized by a unique set of configuration markers scored on the occlusal surfaces of its healing caps. Without removing the healing cap, and while still using your normal crown and bridge impressions procedures, these markers convey the orientation of the implant’s internal hex, collar level, platform diameter, and angulation – all on the patient’s first visit. Another great benefit is the soft-tissue contours surrounding the healing cap are also registered in this impression. Afterwards, the model that is produced gets scanned and a CAD/CAM implant abutment is made. Town and Country is also one of the first labs that will now offer the ability to scan Encode™ via the iTero system as well – creating a perfect harmony for all of your needs.
Implant bars via Town & Country are the fastest, easiest way to get high quality, custom-milled, titanium implant bars for overdentures and fixed-detachable implant prosthetics. The strong, seamless, one-piece design is milled from a solid block of titanium, is devoid of any bacterial harboring porosity, and is never welded for the ultimate in strength and long-term predictability. Moreover, titanium’s benefits over conventional alloy options include a lower specific gravity for substantially reduced weight and thermal conductivity contributing to a more natural and comfortable feel for your patients. Nobel Procera milled bars are available for the widest range of implant systems with your choice of attachments.
