Zirconium Abutment with Ti-base
Customized abutments tailor the contours and emergence profiles of each situation. These abutments have better overall aesthetics, retention and support than prefabricated abutments.
Custom abutments are just such an advancement. Their advantages, including patient-specific soft tissue management during the healing phase and final restorations that adhere precisely to the patient’s gingival architecture, make them an excellent option for implant treatment. But many doctors are hesitant to transition to custom components, having spent years – even decades – utilizing stock abutments for implant cases. This is understandable given the ease of maintaining an inventory of stock abutments and the assumption that custom abutments are prohibitively expensive. Plus, clinicians have successfully restored implant cases for years with stock abutments. So why switch?
