Choice of abutment

Author Stefan Holst

When restoring implants with fixed crown and bridgework, the clinician faces a variety of implant abutments to choose from: Abutments made of different materials (metal or ceramics) and fabricated with different techniques (cast or CAD/CAM abutments). In this module, these treatment options are discussed in detail, including their esthetic, mechanical and biological impact and long-term performance.
