Custom Abutments

When you need a selection of industry-leading implants, Harrison Dental Studio has you covered with all major manufacturers including: Nobel Biocare™, Zimmer®, Biomet 3i™, Astra Tech, Biohorizons®, Bicon, and Straumann®.

When requested, we will partner with manufacturers that hold specific 510(k) compliance for your requested platform. This ensures that the abutment is backed by the appropriate manufacturer’s warranty. Using knockoff components that don’t have 510(k) compliance will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Preparation

Use manufacturer’s tooling to remove healing cap. For multiple units, start in the posterior and work toward anterior. Then, use manufacturer’s tooling to place transfer coping. Ensure components are fully engaged before tightening screw.

Take an X-ray to verify proper seating of components. Next, ensure transfer coping does not hit tray. Use heavy body polyvinylsiloxane impression material. Record impression. Finally, when impression tray is removed, the transfer coping stays in the mouth. Remove transfer coping and replace healing cap.

For multiple units, start in anterior and work toward posterior. Check fit of impression coping into impression. Send to lab.

Cementation

Seat abutment. Torque screw into place per manufacturer’s recommendations. Next, use composite to fill over the implant screw.

Cement restoration over implant with a resin-reinforced ionomer (i.e., RelyX, 3M ESPE).
