Cement-Retained Restorations

The UCLA Abutment is a castable abutment offered with a machined gold alloy base or in a fully castable version.

  • It may be used for single or multi-unit screw or cement-retained restorations.
  • It may correct angles up to 30 degrees when cast as a custom abutment.

* UCLA Gold Hexed Abutments do not include the screw. The final Gold-Tite Screw (IUNIHG) or the Titanium Screw (IUNIHT) must be ordered separately.

 

Clinical Challenges

Implant-Abutment Seal Strength with the Gold-Tite Screw

  • Peri-implant Mucositis - The prevalence of peri-mucositis has been reported as high as 80% of all dental patients.1
  • Peri-implantitis - The prevalence of implants experiencing peri-implantitis has been reported in excess of 12%.2,3
  • Crestal Bone Loss - Average implant crestal bone remodeling can exceed 1.5 mm following the first year of function, leading to compromised aesthetics.3

Considerations:

 
  • Single and multiple-unit cement-retained restorations
  • Laboratory fabricated custom abutments
  • Minimum interarch space of 6mm
  • For aesthetic restorations when tissue is limited
  • Maximum angulation correction of 30°
  • Material: Machined Gold Alloy Cylinder With Plastic Unitube
