S. Lewis, DMD/S. Avera, CDT/M. Engleman, DDS/J. Beumer III, DDS

PMID: 2599586

Improper implant angulation is one of the most difficult problems to overcome in the fabrication of implant-supported and implant-retained restorations. Several techniques using the UCLA abutment have been developed to solve these problems. The creation of large screw-access holes for moderate angulation and the fabrication of telescopic copings and overlay castings for severe angulation problems are discussed. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1989;4:147-152.)

Key words: hexagon, overlay casting, screw-access opening, telescopic copings, UCLA abutment
