  • Publication number: 20190167387
    Abstract: A dental abutment coping or ring for securing a dental prosthesis to dental abutments. The coping or ring includes a body for insertion into a dental prosthesis, and a cavity or space sized to accept a head of the dental abutment. The interior surface of the cavity includes an interface region sized and shaped to accept the dental abutment in a retentive interface fit or a passive fit, depending on an angle of the interface surface. The exterior surface can have channels configured to contain a cement bonding the exterior surface to the dental prosthesis. A dental prosthesis system including the dental copings provides a retentive interference fit between the prosthesis and the dental abutments, even where the dental abutments are not parallel. A plurality of copings and abutments enables a retentive fit to varying degrees depending on the degree of interference fit in each coping and abutment.

  • Publication number: 20190151052
    Abstract: A dental abutment having a coronal portion for supporting a prosthesis separated from a post for seizing, galling or cold welding in a dental implant by a cylindrical portion and hemispheric base portion of length less than the combined length of the prosthetic head and locking taper post portions. The hemispherical portion of the abutment having a sloping shoulder with a surface that forms a small angle with a perpendicular to the cylindrical surface. A dental prosthesis system including such dental abutments.

  • Patent number: 7214062
    Abstract: The position of intra-osseous implants and abutments to analogs is enabled and enhanced by using the longitudinal axial locked position of a post (12a) of an implant (12) having a locking taper in a bore (10a) of an implant (10) having a generally matching locking taper as a reference to determine the position of a stop surface (14c) on impression posts, abutment analog posts and the like received in the bore of an implant and implant analog. In another embodiment the bore (16) of an implant analog (16) is provided with a shelf (16c) located at a position determined by the axial distance of the locked position of the abutment post to prevent over-seating. Controlled retentive resistance and stability of a post is provided by using flats formed in the bore of an implant analog and by forming rings on a post receivable in the bore of an implant or implant analog.

  • Patent number: 7114952
    Abstract: An abutment (10,10A,10B,10C) for a medical or dental implant has a prosthetic receiving tapered post formed with a locking step (10e) for removably restraining a sleeve member such as an emergence cuff (12,12A). The emergence cuff is receivable on the post of the abutment and has an outer surface configuration which merges confluently with the abutment outer surface. The emergence cuff is formed with a snap on interface (12g) for use with a second sleeve (14,14A) having a complimentary snap on interface (14e). When the second sleeve is open ended, a pin (16) is shown for closing off the outer end of the second sleeve, if desired.
