The dental industry struggles with less than ideal implant abutments. Stock abutments in particular cause much disappointment and even implant failure from excess cement. Failures are expensive and devastating.
Riverside Dental Studio introduced a new way to restore implants 4 years ago. We call it the Invisible Abutment System. Simply stated, the Invisible Abutment System solves the inherent problems and dilemmas of traditional abutments
Stock abutments are not contoured for ideal tissue health. They cause most implant failures as well as poor restorative aesthetics. The failures are from excess cement and poor contour around the tissue. Failures also come from weak zirconia used as an abutment. Zirconia fractures because it is not strong enough in this high torque environment. The disappointment comes from the color of the abutment showing through the final restoration. A stock titanium abutment is terrible in the anterior region because of the grey show through on thin tissue as well as the grey show through on the final restoration.
Of course the answer is to find a strong abutment that still looks like the root of a tooth. It needs to copy that ideal appearance in contour and in color. With years of research and practical application we find that the answer was right in front of us all of the time. Basically a pfm solves all of the problems of the traditional implant abutment. Yes, it does require the application of years of experience to get the natural contour and color correct but the result is stunningly beautiful as well as super strong. We call it the Invisible Abutment System. It is a system because it requires the restoration to fit seamlessly and blend perfectly in color with the abutment and surrounding teeth.
The invisible abutment is ceramic coated metal. It’s beautiful supra-gingival margin is seamless and undetectable, matching an eMax crown exactly.
Our clients agree that their stress level goes down and their referrals go up when they prescribe the Invisible Abutment System. In fact we have some clients who insist on the Invisible Abutment System every time they restore an implant.
Riverside Dental Studio is also expert in the area of regular custom abutments. Because we had to go through all of that to get where we are now. Titanium custom abutments are great in the posterior or non esthetic zones. We have some great cases that have used Invisible Implant Abutments on the anterior as well as regular custom titanium abutments on the posterior.
We believe that you should use the right abutment and restoration for the right situation. Also the cost savings on a traditional custom titanium abutment is considerable and should be taken advantage of when possible.
