A New Transitional Abutment for Immediate Aesthetics and Function

Evan D Tetelman et al. Implant Dent. .

Abstract

Maintenance of the patient's self-esteem and confidence throughout the implant-treatment process is essential. Development of a provisional prosthesis that will be stable and esthetic should begin with the initial examination and should involve all members of the implant team. This article presents 3 cases that demonstrate a team-centered approach in using a poly (acrylether) ketone plastic provisional abutment (Peek). This abutment, cost-effective and easily modified, supports a transitional prosthesis that is delivered at the time of implant placement.
