Glidewell Dental announced that its restorative solutions and line of Inclusive Prosthetic® Components are now available for the Astra Tech Implant System®  EV, the company said in a press release. 


The Inclusive Prosthetic Components include a variety of titanium bases, esthetic, and multi-unit abutments, analogs, titanium screws, temporary and UCLA abutments, bit verification cylinders, digital and conventional transfer copings, and more. 


"With the addition of Astra EV, Inclusive just got more inclusive,” said Grant Bullis, vice president and general manager of manufacturing at Glidewell Dental. “This expansion increases the number of dentists who can prescribe Inclusive Custom Abutments and screw-retained crowns to achieve optimal gingival contours and restoration esthetics. We previously outsourced any ASTRA EV cases we received at a significantly higher fee. By adding ASTRA EV to our Inclusive family of restorative solutions, we're able to produce premium restorations at a lower price for dentists who use this system,” Bullis said.


In addition to the Astra EV, Glidewell implant solutions are designed for BIOMET 3i Certain®  ;

CAMLOG®  SCREW-LINE; Dentium®  Implantium , SimpleLine®  II and SuperLine® ; DENTSPLY

Implants ANKYLOS®  C/X, Astra Tech Implant System® , among others, the company’s statement said. 


"We're very excited to continue the expansion of our Inclusive line of prosthetic components to

cover more implant system, said Brian Volken, director of implant business development.

“In addition to driving down costs, we believe that the ability to purchase implant parts from a single source, with uniform pricing regardless of implant platform, simplifies the restorative process for everyone, from us here at Glidewell, to the dentists restoring implant cases, to our colleagues in the dental lab industry,” he said.
