Share Abstract:

Scanning Electron Microscopy Evaluation of the Interfacial Fit of Interchanged Components of Four Dental Implant System


Pages: 216-221
PMID: 9484052

The introduction of the original Swedish implant system (Branemark) was followed by several alternative implant systems with implants and components that closely resembled the original design and treatment protocol. Some of these alternative systems may be interchangeable. Manufacturing variations can result in as much as 0.1 mm of space between the component parts. The implant/abutment int erface fit was evaluated by scanning electron micrography for each of four implant systems, as well as interchanged components between the various systems. Results showed that certain implant system abutments are interchangeable, and that the accuracy of fit meets with or exceeds the criteria set by the original Swedish system.
