Abutment Selection for Fixed Dental Prostheses

Julia-Gabriela Wittneben

An implant abutment is the part or component that serves as support and/or retention for a dental prosthesis. The selection of the implant abutment for each individual patient case is therefore an important part of the implant-prosthodontic treatment phase. In this module, we will discuss the function of implant abutments, different implant abutment types, different abutment materials and how to select an abutment based on a prosthodontically driven process.

After completing this ITI Academy Module, you should be able to…

  • define the function of implant abutments
  • identify different types of implant abutments
  • list different implant abutment materials and their indications
  • select abutments based on prosthodontic indications and planning
