Now that we are in the year 2008, everybody can agree that implant dentistry has taken its place alongside fixed bridgework and endodontics as a routine option in day-to-day patient care. Abutment selection is an important part of providing clinically successful and efficient implant restorations for your patients. Dr. Hart will make the case for utilizing custom abutments in 1 to 3 unit crown and bridge situations. CAD created, and CAM/CNC milled abutments will be emphasized. Procedural, aesthetic, and financial aspects of the various custom abutment options will be explored.
