What Is Custom Abutment?

The term abutment simply refers to a connecting element, and in dentistry, custom abutments are used to attach a bridge or dentures in place or to fix a removable denture, crown, or filling to a dental implant fixture. For bridges, abutments are designed so that the insertion path for the teeth is as close to parallel with each other as possible. For partial dentures, abutments might use elements such as re-contouring, guide planes, and rest seats. Lastly, to connect a dental implant to a prosthetic abutment, a screw is used. During attachment, it’s important that the screw is tightened appropriately to avoid the implant coming loose during chewing.


Types Of Custom Abutment

Implant abutments, or prosthetic implant abutments, can be molded from a variety of materials including gold, surgical stainless steel, and titanium, although most modern abutments are made from a white ceramic known as zirconia. This material is used for aesthetic purposes. Ceramic abutments tend to lend a more life-like appearance to ceramic crowns; however, dependent on the location of the crown, your dentist might choose to use a stronger material, especially if the crown and abutment will be located in the rear of the mouth, since chewing force on these teeth is much stronger than on your front teeth.

Of course, your skilled dentist at Zara Dental Services will discuss these options with you and will help make the right choice for your specific situation.
