Indicated for missing teeth to provide a natural looking emergence profile that ensures ideal soft tissue contours and abutment heights in the anterior or posterior region. Titanium abutments are commonly used in all regions of the mouth due to their strength. Zirconia abutments are used for the best possible esthetics; they are commonly used in the anterior and combined with all-ceramic or zirconia restorations.
Use manufacturer's tooling to remove healing cap. For multiple units, start in the posterior and work toward anterior. Then, use manufacturer's tooling to place transfer coping. Ensure components are fully engaged before tightening screw. Take an X-ray to verify proper seating of components. Next, ensure transfer coping does not hit tray. Use heavy body vinyl polysiloxane impression material. Record impression. Finally, when impression tray is removed, the transfer coping stays in the mouth. Remove transfer coping and replace healing cap. For multiple units, start in anterior and work toward posterior. Check fit of impression coping into impression. Send to lab.
Seat abutment. Torque screw into place per manufacturer's recommendations. Next, use composite to fill over the implant screw. Cement restoration over implant with a resin-reinforced ionomer (e.g., RelyX, 3M ESPE).
