Screw- vs. Cement-Retained Restorations: Clinical Trends and Considerations

Volume 6, Issue 2

With the functional and esthetic benefits of CAD/CAM-designed implant restorations well-established, a growing number of clinicians are regularly prescribing digitally manufactured screw-retained crowns or custom abutments for cementable crowns. Precisely designed to conform to the gingival contours and sulcus shape of the implant site, either of these prosthetic options provides optimum emergence profile, margins and […]

Enhancing Emergence Profiles and Eliminating Black Triangles in the Anterior

Volume 6, Issue 2

With the predictability of implant therapy long established, expectations for restorative outcomes have shifted from function, which is a given in a great majority of cases, to esthetics.

Encode® Custom Abutments

Volume 5, Issue 2

The Encode® Impression System (BIOMET 3i™; Warsaw, Ind.) eliminates the need for implant-level impressions, effectively streamlining the treatment process for the surgeon, restorative clinician and patient. Rather than exchanging the healing component for a separate transfer coping during the restorative phase, the clinician simply leaves the Encode® Healing Abutment (BIOMET 3i) in place and takes […]
