Peri-Implant Soft Tissue Conditioning by Means of Customized Healing Abutment: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.

Materials (Basel) 2019 Sep 19;12(18). Epub 2019 Sep 19.

Department of oral surgery, Fondazione Policlinico Ca' Granda, 20141 Milan, Italy.

Introduction: An optimal aesthetic implant restoration is a combination of a visually pleasing prosthesis and adequate surrounding peri-implant soft tissue architecture. This study describes a novel workflow for one-step formation of the supra-implant emergence profile.

Materials And Methods: Two randomized groups were selected. Read More

A digital approach for one-step formation of the supra-implant emergence profile with an individualized CAD/CAM healing abutment.

J Prosthodont Res 2016 Jul 9;60(3):220-3. Epub 2016 Feb 9.

Department of Reconstructive Dentistry & Gerodontology, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland.

Purpose: This Technical Procedure describes a novel workflow for a one-step formation of the supra-implant emergence profile in the esthetic zone - the 'Digitally Flip Technique' (DFT).

Methods: After implant placement, a post-operative intra-oral optical scan (IOS) was performed to capture the final three-dimensional implant position. Based on the superimposition of the digitally slice-wise DICOM-segmentation of the digitally flipped (mirrored) contra-lateral tooth and the STL-file of the IOS, an individualized healing abutment was CAD/CAM-fabricated out of PMMA-based restoration material in a fully digital workflow and seated at the stage of reopening surgery.
