How does it work?

Unique codes on the healing abutment communicate information on the implant place. The information is used by the lab to design the final prosthesis.

Hard- And Soft-Tissue Maintenance

Patient Aesthetics Through Hard- an Soft Tissue Preservation

How To Maintain Tissue Health

The oral mucosa (soft tissue) is unique anatomical and physiological tissue. A healthy intact mucosa is essential for teeth and oral health.3 Dental implants require an intact peri-implant mucosa for successful integration and maintenance.4

Adherent peri-abutment mucosa is credited with reducing and limiting both microbial and oral cavity content through the sulcus to the implant microgap region.4



Clinical Relevance

Studies show that multiple abutment removals (dis/reconnects) negatively affect peri-abutment mucosal sulcus tissues and contributes to the loss of alveolar crestal bone (hard tissue).5

Crestal bone resorption leads to soft-tissue recession and reduced aesthetics.6,7

Reduced Abutment Swaps

BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment provide abutment design and milling information, eliminating the need for an impression coping.

This reduces the need for multiple abutment removals, preserving the peri-abutment mucosal sulcus interface and maintaining the sealing function.

Aesthetic Outcome For The Patient

One Supragingival impression of a BellaTek Encode Healing Abutment results in a BellaTek Patient Specific Abutment ready for cementation and delivery of the definitive prosthesis.

Benefits for The Patient

Fewer Visits

The intraoral scan can be taken by the specialist at the surgical release visit, eliminating a restorative appointment and resulting in less visits to the dentist’s office compared to traditional procedures.

Comfort

There is no need to use impression copings, resulting in a less invasive impression procedure for more patient comfort.

Aesthetics Outcomes

Abutments designed specifically for the patient for better aesthetic outcomes compared to traditional non-digital procedures.

End-to-End Treatment Solutions that
Optimize the Workflow for the Entire Team
