Comparison of Angled and Standard Abutments and Their Effect on Clinical Outcomes: A Preliminary Report
Eger, Dorothy E. / Gunsolley, John C. / Feldman, Sylvan
This study was conducted to compare the success of implants restored with angled abutments to implants restored with standard abutments. Eighty-one implants in 24 patients were evaluated for up to 36 months. Measurements included probing depths, gingival level, gingival index, and mobility. No significant difference could be found for any of the parameters examined between implants restored with angled and standard abutments. This suggests that the angled abutment may be considered a suitable restorative option when implants are not placed in ideal axial positions.
