What multiunits are DESS components compatible with?
All of the DESS multi-unit components are compatible with the following multi-unit connections:
- Nobel® Active, Replace, and Branemark
- Straumann® Bone Level
- BioHorizons® Internal Hex and External Hex
- 3i Certain® and 3i Osseotite® External Hex
- Megagen® AnyRidge
- Hiossen® Standard
Please Note: DESS is not claiming to be 100% compatible with the multiunit systems for Hiossen® and Megagen AnyRidge®. These two multiunit connections claim to have the same 4.8mmD straight and angled multi-unit design as the Nobel® multi-unit abutment. Many of our clients using the DESS multiunit abutment components for the Hiossen® and Megagen AnyRidge® multiunits have stated that they are successfully compatible.
Please Note: For Straumann® Bone Level multiunit, please use a genuine Straumann® Bone Level multiunit analog and impression coping. All other DESS multiunit components are compatible with the Straumann® Bone Level multiunit connection.
Zimmer® , Implant Direct® , and MIS® have a proprietary multi-unit connection. This means that only the original manufacturer will have their multi-unit compatible components. If you or your referrals are looking for a better solution, then consider our Internal Hex multi-unit abutments. They are compatible with Zimmer® , Implant Direct® , and MIS® internal hex implants and the top portion is 100% compatible with the Nobel® and DESS multi-unit components.
All of the DESS multiunit components that come with a screw are prepackaged with the screw that has a Nobel® UniGrip/Star connection and take a Nobel® driver. DESS also offers other screw options for multiunit components that are sold separately.
