The CONELOG® Implant System includes numerous abutments with varying geometries for optimal anchoring of an implant-retained full denture in an edentulous arch.
CONELOG® bar abutments can be provided with occlusal screw-retained bar constructions. The bar abutments, including the associated prosthetic components, consist of prefabricated components precisely matched to one another. The bar abutments, which are color-coded based on the implant diameters, are available in straight and 17° and 30° angled versions as well as in various gingival heights. For the fabrication of bar constructions, the options for bases for bar abutments include burn-out (can be shortened, POM), cast-on (can be shortened, castable gold alloy), solderable (solderable gold alloy), laser-weldable (titanium), and a titanium bonding base with bar sleeve for Passive-Fit (can be shortened, titanium alloy/POM).
17° and 30° angled CONELOG® bar abutments are available for bridging large implant axis divergences. Where bone volume is reduced and anatomical structures are unfavorable for implantation, the implants can be distally tilted and an appropriate prosthetic restoration can be created. This ensures optimum use of the bone volume.
To anchor a full denture in an edentulous arch, the CONELOG® Ball abutment has been a proven restoration type for decades. The ball abutment is composed of a ball-shaped male part and a matrix CM Dalbo®-Plus (Cendres & Métaux SA, Biel, Switzerland). The retention force of the matrix is adjustable in steps if needed.
The CONELOG® Locator® abutment is used to securely attach a full denture on implants. It plays the role of a male insert and is a component of the Locator® anchoring system, which contains different replacement males with different retention strengths. The system can be used with implant axes divergences up to 20° per implant.

With the customizable universal abutment, divergences to the implant axis can be compensated for by suitably adapted forming. The telescope abutment enables the fabrication of double crowns even in unparallel placement of implants. The Titanium base CAD/CAM of the crown version acts as a bonding basis and makes restorations with individual two-piece abutments made of suitable materials possible for double crowns. Using the gold-plastic abutment with the cast-on technique, primary crowns can be fabricated for bridging implant axis divergences in the double crown technique.
