The implant-abutment connection has a significant impact on how reliably an implant is inserted in the surrounding tissue thereby determining the clinical longevity and esthetics of the reconstruction.
"Designed to the tiniest detail for optimal reliability."
Dr. D. Nisand, Paris FR
1. Stabilization in the axial direction
A axial discrepancy, which can occur with conical connections, is reliably prevented by the precise axial placement of the abutment on the implant shoulder.
2. Stabilization in the lateral direction
The stabilization ring ensures optimal mechanical stability and minimizes micro-movement at the bone and soft tissue level.
3. Smooth transition between abutment and implant neck
The highly precise fit of the abutment and implant facilitates problem-free probing. Also, it ensures optimal cleansability by leaving no niche or ledge for bacteria.
4. High surface pressure
The slightly angled contact of the abutment ensures high surface pressure in the marginal area (focused compression), providing the best possible seal against bodily fluids.
