A New Custom-Made Abutment for Dental Implants: A Technical Note
Corrente, Giuseppe / Vergnano, Luca / Pascetta, Romeo / Ramadori, Guido
The restoration of four missing maxillary incisors with implants and custom-made abutments is described. Acetal was used to fabricate the custom-made abutments, instead of the conventional metals. This material is resistant to wear, and it is biocompatible and white in color. Acetal meets esthetic requirements, particularly when restoring the anterior region of the dental arches. The white post does not give a grayish appearance to the surrounding soft tissues, and the possible gingival recession around the post will not compromise esthetics. The presented case report indicates excellent esthetic and functional results.
