Simplify Implant Crown Delivery and Get Predictable Results

For dentists seeking a smooth, efficient final delivery appointment for cementable implant restorations, custom abutments offer a precise, predictable solution. Glidewell's custom abutments are precisely milled using CAD/CAM technology to facilitate a natural-looking emergence profile and optimize gingival contours and crown esthetics. Due to their strength, titanium custom abutments are commonly used in all regions of the mouth. Zirconia abutments with titanium bases are commonly used to optimize esthetics in the anterior.

Available for most major implant systems, custom abutments are designed to align with the gingival anatomy of the individual patient, ensuring a precise, comfortable fit. Dental CAD software is used to position the crown margins at or just below the gingival surface, easing restoration delivery and the cleanup of excess cement.

Custom Abutment vs. Stock Abutment

The tissue-level junction established by a custom abutment allows for easier cement removal than a stock abutment with shallow margins.

Clinical Tips

  1. Seat the custom abutment completely into the implant, making sure that the anti-rotational features of the connection interface are fully engaged.
  2. Insert the titanium screw (provided) into the screw access hole and hand-tighten using the appropriate driver. It is strongly recommended that a radiograph of the connection site be taken to confirm complete seating of the abutment before proceeding.
  3. Using the appropriate driver in conjunction with a properly metered torque wrench, tighten the abutment to the implant manufacturer’s recommended torque value.
  4. Fill the screw access hole with cotton, Teflon tape, gutta-percha, or other suitable material.
  5. Follow applicable cementation procedures to affix the definitive restoration to the abutment.

At the discretion of the clinician, utilize a temporary or permanent cement of choice and take care in removing all excess cement from around the margins of the custom abutment and implant crown.

Take an implant-level impression utilizing the preferred technique (direct, indirect, or intraoral scan).

  1. Remove the healing abutment from each implant and immediately replace it with an open- or closed-tray impression coping. NOTE: It’s important to seat the impression coping quickly to avoid soft-tissue collapse.
  2. Connect the impression coping to the implant and take a radiograph to verify that the impression coping is seated correctly.
  3. Inject light-body syringe material around each impression coping. Fill the tray with medium or heavy body and record the impression.
  4. Submit the impression to the laboratory.

For detailed instructions for open- and closed-tray impressions, see our Impression-Taking Techniques guide.
