Titanium Temporary Abutment Considerations

  • Temporary abutments should be placed with gentle tapping, especially the 2.5mm posts.
  • Temporary abutments are made of surgical grade titanium alloy Ti6Al4V.
  • The hemispherical portion of a temporary abutment matches the profile of the corresponding non-shouldered abutment with the same diameter.
  • Temporary abutments are designed to form a gingival sulcus and to preserve papillae during the one stage surgical procedure or after a two stage uncovering procedure.
  • Choose an abutment height that is sufficient to laterally support the interproximal papillae without its being too tall such that it would receive undesirable forces from the tongue.
  • The abutment height is measured from the top of the implant to the top of the abutment when the abutment is fully seated.
  • Temporary abutments may be modified with a #1557 carbide bur or other carbide burs.
