      Does anyone know where I can get one of these beside DENTSPLY? I've looked everywhere but it seems most vendors just carry the TX components. Thanks.

      Call Tru Abutment, they just released ev line, custom Ti and ti base zr. Also elos has them, but I think that is for the European market and not yet for the US market.

      They are almost everything I'm looking for in a 3rd party implant library. Great turn around and local too. Plus great fits on ti bases.

      What do they provide better as opposed to CAP or other companies out there? I notice they don't use pre-milled blanks, does this mean they aren't as limited to a size constraint or what is the advantage to not using pre-milled blanks? Cost? Really like scrolling through their website, well laid out.

      Cost effective, and never had a ill fit to date, and have done a few hundred implants with them mainly dentis brand. And they send each ti base and ti abutment out with two screws. Also offer anodized yellow for 10.00.

      Great! Are you running into issues doing split files on 2016 through them?

      Dynamic abutment solutions (Spain) or Nt-trading (Germany)

      Haven't done one yet, but I have copy and appended design to preparation scan and designed a crown like that with no issues, so a split file would be the same. But it all really come down to the design of the abutment, chambers and edges are important in the design.

      I also have used tru abut. I like their to bases.

      I do think they have the EV. But not the EV profile as of yet. (I hate the profile. ). Very limited options for stock abutments thorough dentsply. Surgeons put stuff in with no understanding of restorative options sometimes. Can be really frustrating.

      They literally just got all the EV part this week, they are a go. Katie called me personally to tell me.

      I sent them an email, but no reply yet. ?? Found the analog at Berkeley implants...which I use quite a bit because of the color coding and the prices.
      Just wondering if Tru Abutment scan bodies have been integrated into the Itero workflow?

      Bypass the iTero workflow. Get the iTero stl files and import into your CAD directly.

      I'm not sure if Tru uses the same scan body for the lab and IO. I know that Atlantis uses separate scan bodies. It would help if they would check their email and respond to me. My docs already have the Flo kit. I just hate dealing with new workflows and all the issues that crop up. Argh I would like to know what sort of pricing a they have for the custom ti abutments and the hybrids. Do they mill the zirc tops or do I have to export that to someone else?

      I can't answer those questions as I don't use tru abutment. IO or lab scanner doesn't matter regarding the scan body.
      I was just pointing out that you don't have to follow any 'iTero workflow'. Have the doc use the scan bodies that are matched to the milling center you will be using.
      Then have the doc download the stl files from iTero and forget the milled models.

      They have only one scan body. All in peek (I think) and even have the implant type printed on the side of the marker. Here call them at 714-956-1488. Pricing is very nice the EV is a bit more then all other platforms but nothing drastic. Yeah their email work is not the greatest.

      EEEEK! I just can't part with them. Don't like the printed stuff. I gotta have a model !!! Double check contacts, fits, and margin thickness. I've seen fit issues every now and then. I don't do the milling, so those are variables that I can't control. Sometimes things aren't milled correctly and sometimes it is a sintering issue. The only way to catch this is by checking it on the model.

      we've don't split files with TRU and milled in house.. 2014 3Shape
      fit and design parameters are excellent.. everything about TRU has bee top notch..
      2016 i'm not so sure about, but pretty sure its a 3shape restriction.
      design the abutment, copy the file, add the crown in the order, reuse the design and don't alter the abutment at all.. works ok with everything but Nobel @ Nobel

      they also have a taller tibase.. get the catalog
