Our OverdenSURE product line features a Zirconium Nitride abutment coating for excellent aesthetics and function, and a wider range of abutment sizes for increased restorative flexibility, all wrapped in a classic system design that is intuitive to the user.
Zirconium Nitride is a fully bio-compatible material that exhibits increased hardness and wear resistance1,2, reduced bacterial adhesion3,4,5,6,7, and enhanced lubricity compared to the traditionally used Titanium Nitride1.
The Clinical Challenge
It is estimated that 10% of the world’s population is partially edentulous or edentulous8.
In spite of advances in denture prosthodontics, soft-tissue supported dentures continue to be a source of:
- Chronic residual ridge resorption
- Phonetic challenges
- A loose or poor fit
- Decreased masticatory function
- Facial collapse
OverdenSURE Features & Benefits
Zirconium Nitride Abutment Coating
- Fully bio-compatible material.
- Exhibits increased hardness and wear resistance1,2.
- Reduced bacterial adhesion3,4,5,6,7.
- Enhanced lubricity compared to the traditionally used Titanium Nitride1.
- Softer, more aesthetic gold color.
OverdenSURE Retention System
- Classic Housing Cap and Retention Insert design.
- Addresses problems such as limited interocclusal space through the OverdenSURE Abutment’s low restorative height.
- Total vertical height of 3.17 mm (abutment crown, Retention Insert and Housing Cap).
OverdenSURE Retention and Pivoting Technology
- Implants are placed off axis.
- The denture is not fully aligned with the abutments.
