Prosthetics – Cement Retained
A cement-retained restoration is chosen for one of two reasons; to correct the prosthetic axis of an implant where ideal positioning was not possible, or as a personal preference of the restorative dentist. Although cement retained restorations are becoming less popular due to irretrievability of the restoration, Southern Implants continues to offer the following Cosmetic Abutments.
The cosmetic abutment can be used for either a single tooth replacement or for multiple tooth replacement. They are manufactured for most of our connection interfaces, in varied angulations. The Cosmetic Anatomical Abutments are easier to prepare than other Cosmetic Abutments, since they are manufactured with a scalloped collar, which is positioned on the facial side of the implant.
