By selecting the appropriate collar length and positioning of the implant, the soft tissue conditioning can be influenced by the surgeon. This may reduce the number of necessary prosthetic components as well as the number of treatment sessions.
Standardized gingivaformers at different heights and customizable gingivaformers are available for conventional soft tissue conditioning. The use of definitive abutments (e.g. EASY or VARIOmulti Abutment) after the implant has been uncovered enables soft tissue healing generating an optimal emergence profile. Soft tissue forming is also possible with the help of temporary abutments.
