When it comes to dental implants, do you know your materials? Dr. Joaquin Berron, of Dentaris in Cancun (also with offices in the Riviera Maya), located in the beautiful tourist destination and resort of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, wants his patients to understand their options. For example, one of the latest technologies for providing full arch dental rehabilitation in a short period of time is the Diem®2 treatment solution, offering the best in surgical and prosthetic treatment for full arch rehabilitation with one day of treatment.
One of the most important aspects of dental implantation procedures are components called abutments. Abutments are the prosthetic parts of implant dentistry . Low-profile abutments are the ones that allow us to do this teeth in a day treatments permitting a connection between the head of the implant and the immediate teeth.
For example, two common types of low-profile abutments include:
-Low-profile angled , this allow for correction of the angulation of implant that is sometimes compromised by the amount of bone that the patient presents.
- Straight One-piece are used when we have ideal position of the implants, that allows us a proper access to the screw that will hold the prosthesis to the implants.
The way the low-profile abutments are angled allows us to provide a more favorable appearance and design of the dental prosthetics. Skilled and experienced dentists specializing in restorative dentistry make the final decision on what angulation of abutment to use ( either straight, 17 or 30 degrees) for that specific site and positions it in the most favorable way, ensuring that abutments are fully and properly seated and tightened.
After the abutments are placed the immediate hybrid denture is adjusted (retrofitted) to them, trimmed, adjusted as far as occlusion and polished before torqueing the screws down to the implants.
