Clix Implant Abutment System
The Clix abutment is a 2.25mm titanium ball. The abutments are currently made to fit Zimmer/BioHorizons/MIS/ etc internal connection implants as well as Straumann TL/RN.
All previous balls–on overdentures for roots and implants, on crowns for removable partial dentures, and on top of bars for implant or root supported bridges–solely engaged the height of contour of the sphere. This small area, or band of retention, may lead to early attachment wear and possibly frequent adjustment or replacement of the female unit.
The unique Clix female engages the undercuts of the sphere to allow for superior retention, a patient-pleasing audible security click, and less attachment wear due to the increased surface area contact between male and female attachments.
Another unique feature of the Clix System is the availability of a female paralleling mandrel. If the implants are not parallel, the correction may be made by paralleling the female up to 30° without sacrificing any retention or stability.
Non-parallel females have a difficult path of insertion and removal, leading to increased wear on the attachment. The non-parallel females do not allow the prosthesis to rotate.
Parallel females have an easy path of insertion and removal, decreasing wear on the attachment. This also allows the prosthesis to freely rotate.
30º is about the maximum divergence where the Clix females can still engage the undercut of the sphere.
All complete Clix abutments include Metal Housing, Blockout spacer, and one each of Red, Yellow, and White final inserts.

Clix Replacement Females
Yellow is standard, white is reduced, and orange is increased retention.
Note the sectional cuts in the females, which allow for the female to flex over the height of contour and engage the undercuts of the sphere.
