Abstract

Implant parallelism is rarely achieved, particularly when anatomic limitations are present. The problem of nonparallel implants has been addressed by using angled or bar abutments to compensate for the implant angulation. However, an angled abutment or bar attachment has disadvantages in terms of cost, laboratory process, and the maintenance of oral hygiene. In this clinical report, a solution for the management of an inclined implant is presented by using customized Locator abutment fabricated by computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM).
