Many cementable implant
systems are designed to accommodate the abutment in SEVERAL different positions.
Laboratory-prepared implant abutments are created to seat into the implant
in only ONE position. There have been rare occasions, however, when an abutment
has been seated in the implant incorrectly. We have addressed this potential
problem. As a chairside guide to accurately orient the abutment, we place
a retention groove on the buccal surface of the casting, whenever aplicable.
Now, as an additional safeguard, to prevent this problem from ever happening again we prepare a
composite seating jig that will simply and correctly locate the proper position
of the abutment. This additional complimentary service will eliminate the
problem of implant abutments being seated in the wrong position.
