The Clinical Advantage of the Morse Taper Connection and its Restorative Workflow
1 Jun 2019
Presented by Dr. Alex Molinari and Dr. Alexander Antipov
Since the concept of osseointegration was discovered in the 1950’s by Prof. Brånemark, many studies have shown high success rates centered around the functionality of dental implants with no regard for esthetics. The longevity of an implant inserted into bone is no longer an issue, but the longevity of the crowns over these implants is now more important, not only from the functional aspect but also from the esthetic point of view. Another important aspect to be observed is the way the soft and hard tissues behave once an implant receives function. The key aspects that should be evaluated in implant restorations are:
- Evaluation of the interoclusal space
- Individual or multiple restorations
- Screw or cement retained
- Straight or angled abutments
- Evaluation of the soft tissue (quality & quantity) regarding
- biological width
- Digital vs. Pre-fab solution
These factors must be taken into consideration to rehabilitate a dental implant in order to offer high predictability in the areas of function, esthetic, phonetic and hygienic condition.
- The importance of thinking 3 dimensionally when planning implant placement.
- The level of the restoration: Implant vs. Abutment
- Abutment collar height selection regarding biological width
- Optimization of the bone crest and soft tissue maintenance
- Function vs. esthetic and phonetic vs. hygiene — what is more important?
