The Use of Zirconium Abutments in Dental Implantology

Watch Dental Video about Zirconium Abutment

Abutments are small implant attachments in dentistry.

Abutments serve as connectors between the implant and crown. Abutments can be made from titanium or ceramic. You see a titanium abutment sticking out from the gums. Zirconium abutments are usually used in the front of the mouth because they allow for better gum aesthetics. Titanium abutments are cheaper and more stable and should be used in the side teeth area. Abutments are screwed onto the implant.

In the video "Zirconium Abutment" you will see how provisionally cemented crowns are removed from the tooth stumps. One of the crowns that is being removed in the film is an implanted crown held in place by a zirconium abutment. The abutment’s fixation screw is loosened and the abutment is subsequently removed.
