Renishaw and BioHorizons Launch Custom 3D Printed Abutments for Dental Implants

Renishaw and dental implant company BioHorizons have teamed up to launch custom metal 3D printed abutments.

The product called LaserAbutments allows dentists to offer custom abutments for dental restorations, providing function and aesthetics while maintaining high value for money. These abutments are made from CoCr using Renishaw’s hybrid manufacturing, including 3D printing and machining to achieve a precisely fitting geometry for screw-retained implants.

Dental labs can design their abutment in-lab using Renishaw Dental Studio software and then submit the file to Renishaw central manufacturing.

Ed Littlewood, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Dental Products Division, explains: “This is yet another case of metal 3D printing innovation dismantling the limits of traditional manufacturing methods and opening new horizons for complex geometries and mass customisation of parts, at a very attractive cost”.
