The DESSLoc® Abutments external design assures full compatibility with the abutments traditionally used for such solutions. This means DESSLoc® Abutments can be used in old restorations without any problems.
In addition to the already known advantages of the traditional components, DESS® has added some improvements that makes DESSLoc® Abutments the better solution for such restorations.
These improvements come mainly from the exclusive coating of Zirconia Nitride (ZrN*), a fully bio-compatible material which increases the hardness of the DESSLoc® abutment surface. Additionally it decreases the coefficient of friction in comparison to the traditionally used titanium nitride and vastly outperforms some of the low-quality alternatives which have no coating or are simply anodized.
