Trends in Implant Dentistry: Inclusive® Titanium Custom Abutments

Volume 6, Issue 2

The advantages of custom abutments, which establish the ideal gingival margins and emergence profile needed for a predictable and esthetic outcome, are becoming increasingly well-known among restorative doctors. Designed with precision using dental CAD software, the cervical portion of the custom abutment is contoured to conform precisely to the shape of the patient’s sulcus, facilitating […]

Monolithic Zirconia Restorations Over Low-Profile Titanium Abutments

Volume 5, Issue 3

Monolithic zirconia is increasingly popular as a replacement for traditional PFM implant restorations. Shaded restorations fabricated from monolithic materials such as BruxZir® Solid Zirconia exhibit great durability and esthetics. The rapid adoption and integration of CAD/CAM technology and the restorative flexibility of low-profile titanium abutments and copings are also driving this trend. A restorative protocol […]

Outsourcing Inclusive® Titanium Abutments Utilizing UCLA Plastic Abutments

Volume 1, Issue 1

Although in-house CAD/CAM systems can be extremely expensive, the benefits of digital implant dentistry are still accessible even without this large, upfront investment.
