I need help. I don't make too many implants and if I do I send it to Straumann for custom made abutment. Apparently there is a global shortage of SC platform titanium blocks and the wait time is about a month. My dentist doesn't want a Variobase and a abutment as an option. He wants it milled in one piece. Anyone else has SC platform titanium blocks in stock that can mill an abutment for me in the US or does it have to be milled by Straumann only? I have everything scanned and ready to go.

SC is a hard platform to do, i hate them personally and they are only meant to be place in upper laterals and lower 4 incisors only! Same with nobel 3.0 avtives, only FDA approved for those positions. And Ti bases are a nightmare if not properly places.

Tru abutment only does NC,RC, RN and WN no SC.

Someone with a Motion 2 from Amann Girrbach
and the Icadcam software may be able to do it.

I really love the straumann platform, their digital solutions (angled screw channels, quick turnaround on custom abut., and the SC solution) but holy cow are they a pain to work with when it comes to letting the lab play a more significant role in case planning, and even receiving scans from GP/Surgeon. 3i is worse. Man they blow.

Is that per Katie? Pretty sure I’ve done them..
Or maybe just Ti-bases
