Is Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Bridge a plain copy of a hybrid base?

Our Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Bridge is an original concept, invented by Elos Medtech, thanks to its unique features and advantages.

  • The implant interface is compatible with the major implant systems.
  • The GuideGrip™ Technology secures the position of the crown and simplifies the cementation as well as the try-in on the patient.
  • The u-formed design allows for angled screw channels in the Elos Accurate®  Hybrid Base Bridge.
  • Specially-designed retention grooves with pre-set cement gap provide a secure cementing.

Is Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Single a plain copy of a hybrid base?

Our Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Single is an original concept, invented by Elos Medtech, thanks to its unique features and advantages.

  • The implant interface is compatible with the major implant systems.
  • Zero rotation is secured thanks to the design of BaseLock™ anti-rotation feature.
  • The three mm cylinder distributes the cement for a secured cementation, preventing loosening of the implant crown.
  • The optimum roughness for cementation is achieved through the cylinder design and by only sand blasting the zirconia material. The retention tests show significant results of the mechanical retention.

What should I do if the ”antennas” on the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base are broken or bent?

If one or both of the antennas break, you will lose the grip function. This is however not important for the long-term result of the prosthetic restoration; you can still use Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base without risk! If the antennas bend, you may bend them back to their original position.

What should I do if the Elos Accurate® Prosthetic Screw breaks?

If the Elos Accurate® Prosthetic Screw breaks in the patient’s jaw, try first to use an ultrasonic sound to take away the screw remains. If not successful, we recommend you to refer the patient to a specialist clinic.

Do I need to buy a new screwdriver? I already have one from Talladium.

No, you don’t. You can use your Talladium screwdriver. However, we have made some improvements to our screwdriver, which is now intended for up to 35 Ncm, allowing you to feel more secure when you torque to required Ncm set by the implant companies.

It means that the maximum angle of the screw channel is 28° and that the dental implants can be tilted up to 30°.

What libraries do I need, to work with the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Bridge?

For Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base, we have created a new library that is free to download from our website. It is important that you use our library structure instead of scanning the physical component. We have all the needed parameters and features, for example, the pre-set cement gap, included in the library.

We work with the three largest software 3Shape, Dental Wings and exocad.
For Sirona users: You are not able to install our libraries in the Sirona software.

How should I prepare the prosthetic restoration before cementing the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base?

Blast the inner geometry of the milled dental bridge interfacing the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base with aluminium oxide ≤ 50 µm and blasting pressure of two bars. Before cementing, clean the surface thoroughly with alcohol. Note: Blasting of the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base Hybrid Base™ Bridge is not necessary. For more information, download our IFU.

What cement should I use with the Elos Accurate® Hybrid Base?

We recommend you to use 3M ESPE RelyX™ self-adhesive cement since this is the cement we have used throughout our process when developing and testing our product.

Which scanbody should I use?

The Elos Accurate Scanbody can be used both for taking a digital impression using an intra-oral scanner, and for taking a digital impression using a lab scanner. We are currently in the phase of removing our desktop scanbody.

The PEEK part of the scanbody got loose. What do I do wrong?

You probably use too much force when tightening the screw. You should always tighten lightly by hand and no more than 5 Ncm.

What kind of models can I create from the Elos Accurate® Model Analog?
