A few words for the encoding of the prosthetic components that may facilitate the right selection and the correct order of the products. Each serie of products is color-coded, according to the implants to which the components are compatible. The same color coding is followed to the present catalogue.
In this way, both the clinician and the dental technician may immediately recognize the compatibility of the components.
The products of each serie are further number-coded, according to the specific features of each part. Knowing the meaning of numbers in each code, it is easy and safe to recognize all the characteristics of each product, even without visual inspection.
The code of each component is formed from two, three or four sets of numbers, separated by dots. Each group of numbers is referring to the features of the product.
The first two numbers (ex 01) represent the compatibility to specific implants,as mentioned in the following pages. For example products with code 01 are compatible to XiVE® implants.
The tree following numbers indicate the diameter of the components. For example code 340 means diameter 3,4mm
The two following numbers indicate the inclination of the abutment. For example 00 means straight abutment and 17 means angled abutment with 17o inclination.
The last three numbers indicate the gingival height of the abutment at the lingual site. For example 120 means gingival height (GH) 1,2mm.
The above mentioned coding is characteristic for the abutments for cement-retained restorations. All other abutments or components follow the same coding at the first two sets of numbers (indicating compatibility and diameter) and the last set of numbers characterize each product for a specific clinical use.
