Abstract

A technique is described which will generate a customized healing abutment for a dental implant to allow the development of ideal soft tissue contours. With implant position and soft tissue contours defined at surgery, customized impression techniques can be used to capture those details and help generate the definitive implant-supported restoration. This workflow reduces the number of patient visits.
