Collar heights

Individual soft tissue management

A thin gingiva or limited vertical space for the prosthetic restoration often require a crestal implant position. With MC implants, it is possible to achieve excellent esthetics, especially in the anterior region.

The distance between the implant shoulder and bone helps to respect the biological structures. With RC implants, naturally esthetic results can easily be achieved.

In the case of the edentulous jaw, an irregular course of the gingival depth often requires a longer neck length. LC implants are suitable for transgingival use in the case of restorations with hybrid prosthetics.

Selection of the suitable abutment collar height from a prosthetic/esthetic point of view is influenced by the height of the implant collar used. Abutment collar height is determined based on the:

  • Height of the emergence profile
  • Prosthetic restoration type (cemented, screw-retained or overdenture)

These considerations simplify the selection of the optimal abutment.
