These are usually called prosthetic implant abutments. These
abutments can be made from a variety of materials, such as
titanium, surgical stainless steel and gold. More modern abutments
are now also made from zirconia, which is a white ceramic, to
better complement the aesthetics of a dental implant restoration.
The two images to the right show a ceramic abutment and the ceramic
crown bonded to it. The images to the right show how a ceramic
abutment can enhance a ceramic crown by giving it a more lifelike
appearance. Ceramic abutments have to be used with care, however,
since their compressive strength is nowhere near that of titanium,
gold or other noble metals. Most clinicians feel more comfortable
using a metal prosthetic abutment in the posterior molar areas, due
to the increased masticatory forces present in these areas.
An abutment is not necessarily parallel to the long axis of the
implant. It is utilized when the implant is at a different
inclination in relation to the proposed prosthesis. Most crowns and
fixed partial dentures have a cemented or screw-retained fixation
on the abutment.
