Abstract

One of the most significant challenges in contemporary dental implant therapy involves managing the transition of the restoration from the implant through the soft tissues by means of an abutment. This article presents a practical technique to visualize if the selection of a custom-made abutment would be favored over the use of a manufactured standard abutment to receive crown restoration supported by a dental implant.
