Description

As the long-term prognosis of implant therapy has become more predictable, the emphasis of treatment planning has shifted from the surgical placement of the implant to the esthetics of the final prosthetic outcome. By managing the soft tissue surrounding the implant site, custom abutments help to maintain this restorative-driven approach by establishing ideal margins and creating a natural emergence profile for the final prosthesis.. With the emergence of restorative-driven treatment planning as the optimal approach to implant therapy, custom healing and restorative components go a long way toward creating the esthetics needed to meet patient expectations. Custom healing components help to preserve the gingival contours that surround the natural tooth, while final custom abutments adhere precisely to final soft-tissue architecture, resulting in a natural emergence profile for the definitive restoration.
