Titanium Base Abutments for Fixed Implant RestorationsOctober 1, 2021
The relatively recent development of titanium base abutments for implant-supported fixed prosthodontics, particularly single implant restorations, was intended to solve key laboratory and clinical problems. Although these abutments have been generally successful in this regard, rigorous investigation into mechanical, biologic and esthetic parameters and limitations of use is necessary. This issue of Prosthodontics Newsletter reviews recent evidence on factors that contribute to the effective use of titanium base abutments.
