The UCLA Abutment
Lewis, S. / Beumer III, J. / Hornburg, W. / Moy, P.
A technique has been developed to fabricate implant-supported restorations directly to Brånemark implant fixtures, bypassing the traditional transmucosal abutment cylinders. This method provides for mproved esthetics and soft-tissue health, and also solves the frequent problem of limited interocclusal space.
