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

Evaluation of concordance between CAD/CAM and clinical positions of abutment shoulder against mucosal margin: an observational study.

BMC Oral Health 2018 05 2;18(1):73. Epub 2018 May 2.

Private Dental Practice, Białystok, Poland.

Background: While working on CAD/CAM-customized abutments, the use of standard impression copings with a circular diameter produces inconsistency within the emergence profile. It may begin with a collapse of the supra-implant mucosa during impression taking, then lead to a computer-generated mismatch of the position and outline of the abutment shoulder, and consequently result in a compromised outcome of anticipated treatment. The aim of the study was to compare the virtual and clinical positions of the abutment shoulder in relation to the mucosal margin after the abutment delivery. 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.

Digital implant impressions with the "Individualized Scanbody Technique" for emergence profile support.

Clin Oral Implants Res 2014 Mar 4;25(3):395-397. Epub 2013 Jan 4.

Division of Fixed Prosthodontics, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Objective: The Short Communication presents a clinical case in which a novel procedure--the "Individualized Scanbody Technique" (IST)--was applied, starting with an intraoral digital impression and using CAD/CAM process for fabrication of ceramic reconstructions in bone level implants.

Material And Methods: A standardized scanbody was individually modified in accordance with the created emergence profile of the provisional implant-supported restoration. Due to the specific adaptation of the scanbody, the conditioned supra-implant soft tissue complex was stabilized for the intraoral optical scan process. Read More

Transitional custom abutments: optimizing aesthetic treatment in implant-supported restorations.

E A Lee

Pract Periodontics Aesthet Dent 1999 Nov-Dec;11(9):1027-34; quiz 1036

University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Philadelphia, USA.

As the discipline of implant prosthodontics continues to evolve, additional emphasis has been focused on the role of adequate emergence profiles and peri-implant soft tissue contours. Despite the development of anatomically shaped healing abutments, currently advocated techniques exhibit clinical limitations. This article introduces the transitional custom abutment technique as a method of manipulating the supra-implant soft tissue contours so that optimal emergence profiles and increased restorative flexibility can be achieved in the treatment of patients with compromised fixture angulation.
