An unfortunate occurrence in dental implant prosthetics is malpositioned implant placement. The haste to remove salvageable implants crtaruadfvvzetxuvsybscstqdsbbca. There are various methods for restoring these prosthetic problems, one of which is the cementable option.

The custom abutment dates back to the s. This was directly related to poorly placed implants for which doctors had no possible means of restoring, due to a lack of angle-correcting abutments from manufacturers. We lab technicians had to find ways to make these cases work, such as making a custom abutment out of the titanium alloy impression coping for the Core-vent implant or using the UCLA abutment from Implant Innovations.

The cementable option became the only one for many dentists due to their familiarity with standard crown and bridge and the lower cost. However, cementable restoration has come under fire in the last few years due to cement-induced peri-implantitis and other controversial claims. So in the case of a screw-retained prosthesis where the implants are malpositioned, we have quite a few options. Premachined angled abutments work wonderfully for poorly angled, yet somewhat reasonably placed implants.

A large span bridge with many implants where one or two will have the screws coming out of the buccal can be easily corrected. This applies only if the implant manufacturer makes angled correcting abutments. Simply place the abutment on the implant, aiming the screw hole to the lingual.

Angle correction varies by implant manufacturer from 17—35 degrees. Premachined components attach over these abutments, allowing for precise fit and accurate screw retention versus a custom abutment style. The drawbacks to this system are:. A custom abutment with a milled lingual screw hole is an option when the manufacturer does not make an abutment or the position is too buccal or too deep.


In this malposicoin, the custom abutment can be made in the traditional way as any cementable prosthesis with a labial chamfer or butt.

After finishing the abutment, a lingual screw hole is tapped with a specific-sized tap that corresponds to a screw.

A plastic waxing sleeve and screw is attached to the abutment, and an over-coping is waxed.

When completed, the coping is now screw retained. A milled mesio frame acts as one big custom maplosicion when all malposiciom the implants are malpositioned. A bar that attaches to all of the implants is made with either tapped occlusal or lingual screw holes.

The bar, when placed in the mouth, will have the implant screw holes pointed in many different positions. In many cases, the cylinder and screw will be away from the bar.

The one piece over frame will lay on top and be screwed into the mesio frame. The end result is a traditional-looking screw-retained bridge. The drawbacks of this system are:. An overdenture works in many cases. The angulation of the implant is not as crucial in an overdenture since the overdenture covers everything up.

A clip bar acts in many ways like the mesio frame, except the overframe is removable by the patient and, in most cases, the overframe of a mesio bar is not. A one-piece solid bar with attachments—such as ERA, Locator, Hader, and many others—is made and a denture snaps onto it.

Sometimes two separate bars are made if the implants are so nonparallel that a one-piece frame is impossible. Overdenture abutments come in handy in that they are individually placed and do not require a frame. They also allow for angulation correction up to 45 degrees. The drawbacks of these systems are:. Screw holes coming out of the buccal are not the end of the world. In the posterior, the only ones really concerned about the screw holes are the dentist and the lab.

The patient really has no expectation of where the holes are.

Once filled with the composite, the case is done and the patient goes home—no wiser to the screw hole issue. Sometimes the implant is so far buccal that it comes out of the gingival-colored ceramics of the bridge.


This comes out nicely since a pink plug in the gingival is more esthetic than on the mid-facial of an anterior. More than once I have had an implant that was so far labial that we made a screw-retained crown with the hole coming out of the gingival, and in essence made a lingual ridge lap crown. Probably the best one would be prevention and proper use of guided surgery prior to placing the implants.

If there is not enough bone, offer another option. Software programs such as Simplant, NobelClinician, Implant Studio, coDiagnostiX, and many more exist to make sure more precise and predictable final restorations will be made.

Many think this applies only to full arch, but single tooth is probably the most important use for these guides. The difficulty in getting an esthetic, adequately supported proper emergence profile restoration on an anterior implant is without a doubt the hardest. The team concept of oral surgeon, restoring dentist, and lab technicians is most crucial at the planning stages rather than the final restoration stage.

By using scans and implant-placement software, we can preplan the final restoration and carry out our plan with no late surprises to the patient or restoring doctor as far as lab fees or final esthetics.
