This article discusses the fabrication of a CAD/ CAM anterior implant provisional with an emergence profile designed to develop the soft tissue into a more esthetic and healthy contour.
The soft tissue model was modified to improve the emergence profile of the restoration and provide more tissue support.
No bulky margins and you get a straight emergence profile
The Zirconia added onto an existent standard metallic abutment can be used to bulk up the soft tissue to get a good contour and emergence profile.
Figure five shows a good soft tissue contour and shaping of the peri implant tissue that will help attain good emergence profile of the final restoration.
Dr Luthra explains: "It changes the emergence profile
- the angle at which the tooth emerges from the gum line.
Particularly efficient at the time of uncovery or directly after implant placement with the possibility of a non-functional immediate restoration to create a natural emergence profile during tissue healing
Due to the prefabricated anatomical design, the emergence profile of the tissue is optimally shaped during the healing phase.
In addition, the emergence profile of Atlantis Abutments for Astra Tech OsseoSpeed[TM] implants begins close to the implant interface so that even in cases with minimal soft tissue, optimal esthetic results can be achieved.
Clinicians can select the optimal abutment that best supports the emergence profile and esthetics necessary for the individual case.
In addition, the emergence profile
of Atlantis Abutments for Astra implants begins close to the implant interface so that minimal soft tissue is needed to achieve optimal esthetic results.
This presentation will illustrate how proper pre-surgical planning concepts including Atlantis Abutments can maximize functional and esthetic outcomes, soft tissue maturation and emergence profile
