Description

There are many prosthetic considerations that a clinician should weigh when choosing an abutment material for an implant restoration. Although zirconia and titanium both offer strength and versatility, each material offers unique benefits depending on the circumstances of the implant restoration. A clear understanding of these differences and advantages will help clinicians select the best type of custom abutment for each individual case.. Digital design and manufacturing technologies allow for the production of custom abutments that offer several esthetic and functional advantages for implant restorations. Custom implant abutments are produced primarily with titanium and zirconia, and both materials have distinct advantages depending on the case being restored.
