What is a Titanium Abutment?

Watch Dental Video about Titanium Abutment

Abutments are small implant attachments used in dentistry.

In the video "Titanium Abutment" you will now see how provisionally cemented crowns are removed from the tooth stumps. One of the crowns is an implant crown and is supported by a zirconium abutment. The abutment’s fixation screw is loosened and the abutment is subsequently removed.

Abutments serve as connectors between the implant and crown. Abutments can be made from titanium or ceramic. Zirconium abutments are usually used in the front because they allow for better gum aesthetics. Cheaper and more stable titanium abutments should be used in the side teeth area. Abutments are screwed onto the implant.
