Andrea Parpaiola, DDS/Michael R. Norton, BDS, FDS, RCS (Ed)/Denis Cecchinato, MD, DDS/Eriberto Bressan, DDS/Marco Toia, DDS

DOI: 10.11607/prd.1272

This report presents early clinical experiences with the treatment of a consecutive cohort of 89 patients who received 125 prostheses supported by 205 milled abutments. Abutments were fabricated using unique computer-aided design software to deliver both titanium and zirconia abutments based on idealized values for tooth dimensions and emergence profiles as well as on a scan of the proposed definitive prosthesis.
