Vision

Several of the projects that Burbank Dental Lab will be advancing in 2019 come from the feedback we receive from our customers.

Innovation

At Burbank Dental Lab our focus is on continuous innovation, creating solutions that help your dental practice and exceed your expectations. One of those efforts
was the result of feedback from a clinician that we work closely with. It was her desire to have the manufacturers original component custom abutments available in milled titanium.

Solutions

Straumann implants was the solution. Straumann recently made available an FDA approved workflow that enables Burbank Dental Lab to fabricate milled custom titanium abutments in-house using Straumann original components.

The Straumann® Cares® program for dental labs is a comprehensive program that employs, design software, a 5 axis CAD/CAM mill, and original interface custom abutment blanks.

Advantages

Using The Original Straumann Components and FDA approved digital workflow delivers many distinct advantages, such as:

Only Straumann* knows the exact dimensions, tolerances and material composition of its implants, and can, therefore, produce optimal design harmony between Straumann implants and their corresponding  Straumann prosthetic components.

Only Burbank Dental Lab which is regarded as one of the top dental labs in the USA has the experience and commitment to reliably implement the Straumann workflow and original components that assure you that you will be placing the most reliable restorations on your Straumann implants.

Straumann Benefits

Original components from Straumann deliver the most intimate accurate fit between Straumann implants and abutments. When you choose original Straumann® components, from Burbank Dental Lab,  you receive a highly precise product of exceptional quality. The perfect match of Straumann implants and abutments results in excellent fatigue test performance, while the exceedingly thorough inspection process ensures consistent quality across all original Straumann® components.

Precision fit - Straumann

There is a significant advantage to using original Straumann components. The abutment, screw, and implant are all specifically designed to reduce screw loosening and micro-mobility when using original Straumann versus non-original implant-abutment connections.

“Our study shows that the tested original components fit better at the implant-abutment interface than non-original components. The consequence is a reduced risk of screw loosening and of implant-abutment fractures."

Prof. Seong Joo Heo, Department of Prosthodontics and Dental Research Institute, College of Dentistry, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea
There is a difference in variation of micro-mobility of original versus non-original implant-abutment connections.

The Original Straumann implant to abutment system shows the smallest of mobility*. This indicates the tightest tolerance limits of the implant to abutment interface. 
 
The mean implant-abutment mobility was between 2 and 4 µm for all abutment types (not significant for p = 0.05).
 
“Our study showed that the use of the original Straumann abutments resulted in reproducible high stability of the implant to abutment connection compared to the third-party abutments.”
 
Dr. Ludger Keilig, Department of Prosthetic Dentistry, Preclinical Education and Materials Science, Dental School, University of Bonn, Germany

The Straumann digital workflow for implant restorations is a comprehensive FDA approved the process. The FDA approved workflow requires the use of Straumann intraoral scan bodies, IOS Intraoral scanner, Straumann Dental Wings CARES® CAD/CAM software, and the use of Original Straumann abutment blanks milled in the Straumann / amanngirbach M series 5-axis mill.

Burbank Dental Lab has integrated the Straumann® software and M series mill, into our workflow in order to deliver an optimal design for original Straumann titanium custom abutments for use with Straumann implants.

More than a clinically proven system.  It’s the trust that comes with it. In a 10-year retrospective study on Straumann original prosthetic components shows an exemplary 97% success rate.
 
Straumann original prosthetic components show excellent long-term clinical performance. Tissue Level Implants were assessed. Implants had been restored with original Straumann components between May 1997 and January 2001 at a University of Bern study, with a 97% success rate.

Burbank Dental Lab is committed to providing amazing quality restorations to meet your desired preferences. If you are restoring to Straumann implants, you will not get a more form-fitting and durable implant abutment than by prescribing an Original Straumann CARES Abutment from Burbank Dental Lab.
