Title: Which Abutment?

Presented By: Dr Petros Yuvanoglu


Abutment selection is one of the most important parameters for successful dental implant treatment. The choice of the “Right” abutment both in type and material, will affect the treatment outcome at a biological, biomechanical and aesthetic level.

The aim of this lecture is to shed light on the thought process of selecting the ideal abutment or combination of abutments, indicated for different implant treatment scenarios based on the 25 year personal experience of the lecturer and the scientific literature.

A simplified prosthetic protocol will be presented using a limited number of different abutments for all clinical cases.
