Temporary or Healing Abutments

1. At the time of uncovering, place a titanium temporary abutment or a plastic healing abutment. These abutments will support the soft tissue and assist in the formation of the gingival sulcus. Either abutment may be modified to achieve a desired gingival contour. Temporary or transitional crowns should not be placed on temporary or healing abutments.

 

 

Note: Select a temporary or healing abutment that is of a sufficient size and shape to laterally support the interdental papillae, but will not encroach upon the papillae.
