Implant Abutment

Dental implants have undoubtedly become the most utilized option for replacing missing natural teeth, owing to their excellent durability, strength, and esthetics. Despite their excellent success rate, a few cases of implant failures have also been observed by dentists. Various studies have shown that the implant abutment interface is a critical factor in determining the durability and success of two-piece dental implant-supported prostheses. This article discusses various factors which influence the longevity and clinical service life of dental implants in terms of the implant-abutment interface.

 

What is the Implant-Abutment Interface?

The two-piece implant system consists of an endosteal part, the implant, and the mucosal part which is the abutment.  The mucosal portion is usually attached to the endosteal part after the osseointegration has taken place. However, when the abutment is screwed or attached to the implant, a gap inevitably exists between them, which has been reported in the literature to be about 40-60 µm. This gap allows micromovements between these components which can lead to implant failure due to uneven loading, friction, bone resorption, and bacterial adhesion.
