Single Tooth Implant Supported Restorations
Lewis, Steven G. / Beumer III, John / Perri, George R. / Hornburg, Wynn P.

This article describes a new technique for fabricating single tooth restorations directly to Brånemark implant fixtures, bypassing the titanium abutment cylinder. With the use of the UCLA abutment, this procedure can provide esthetic and functional restorations.
