DESS Dental Smart Solutions is a prosthetic solutions provider. Our mission is to be leader in the field of quality dental abutments. Following this idea, all our abutments are tested under the most exhaustive quality controls.

DESS® products are manufactured by Terrats Medical S.L., company with more than 70 years of experience in the manufacturing of precision mechanical components. If you want to know more, take a look at our timeframe!

DESS® Dental is present in more than 40 countries and offers the widest range of dental abutments and prosthetic solutions 100% compatible with the most popular implant systems in the market.

We enhance our dental abutments and prosthetic solutions with some of these technologies: SelectGrip®, a surface treatment developed for components made of titanium resulting in significant adhesion improvement for cemented dental restorations. The retention values increase by up to 500% compared to the same untreated abutment. Or Zirconium nitride (ZrN) treatment, which is a surface treatment that reduces plaque build-up and inflammation. Keep reading to know how we do it in DESS Technologies section!

The flexibility to choose between different implant connections and platforms is one of the DESS® advantages. Competitive pricing up to 65% below implant brands, Specialised technical support and fast delivery within 24 hours are further plus points.

The DESS® Dental abutments are conceived under the Pure Switch concept, which means they can easily replace any implant brand prosthetic parts. This concept gives the professional a great deal of flexibility, as he can use both the implant brand product and the DESS® product without losing any of its features.

The Pure Switch responds to the need to create a prosthetic solution that can fully replace the implant brand without compromising the quality or strength of the product. All our abutments are tested to guarantee their correct functioning. Following this idea, the backbone of the Pure Switch concept is our screw, as it is identical to the implant brand and perfectly interchangeable. We offer easy-to-use and time-saving solutions.

DESS® product range has been conceived around the most popular dental implant connections but has been evolving to become the most complete range of compatible products in the market. At DESS® we have the flexibility to create and launch new compatibilities, our scalable production capabilities allow us to adapt easily. We have available more than 2.500 product references and 32 compatibilities manufactured under the Pure Switch concept. Check all our compatibilities in the products section.

CAD/CAM technologies offer different possibilities to save costs and time. Streamlining the workflow starting with the intraoral scan, designing and milling the individual crowns without the need to create a working model. At DESS® Dental we offer a complete range of digital solutions for dental implants, as well as the ANGLEBase, Pre-milled Blanks, Digital Analogues, Scan Abutments, C-Base, ELLIPTIBase, among others.

All these products can be used with the free DESS® Dental CAD/CAM libraries for Exocad®, Dental Wings® and 3Shape®. You can download STL files and library guides in the libraries section. For technical issues, please contact us at
