I'm curious, anyone worked with these implants before? Any idea who does custom titanium abutments for them? Do they have a DIM?

I have, but mainly used their version of Ti-bases. Not sure about anything digital. I'd give them a call and ask, if I were you.

They were around my area ten years ago. Back then, they had few restorative options and their abutments were very expensive. I haven't seen one in probably 6-7 years

It is one of few brands what I hate the most if you ask me Banghead
Because is not compatible with anything and for the longest time were no digital parts and no support from 3rd party vendors... local rep is a PIA to deal with. Thank God it didn't gain popularity up here

Update:. Got in touch with Thommen, very helpful actually. They offer digital analogs and regular stone model analogs. Only two places mill custom titanium abutments for them...roe dental lab and core3d. Also, you must have one of there drivers for the screw. Haven't seen cost but I'll let ya all know.

Yeah, weird little driver. I was about to mention that in my first post but thought it would not add to the discussion... :)

It was developed as a competitor to Straumann, FWIW.

I just ran into the same issue. Thommen now only recommends ROE to fabricate their custom abutments. If you have your own scan body that the docs uses then you can do everything but if the doc uses the Thommen scan body, as most others said previously, it's not capable with anything.

yea, they suckass..
I've always defaulted to a stock abutment or a cast-to..
the driver is a "4 lobe" proprietary

nothing has ever changed with company
