Ideally, dental implants should be placed parallel to each other and perpendicular to the occlusal forces. However, they might be implanted with undesirable angulations due to anatomic limitations such as proximity to infra alveolar nerve or maxillary sinus or dentist incompetency. Improper angulation is often addressed at the prosthetic stage of the treatment via using angled abutments. However, severely angled implants could be more challenging regarding the restoration of both esthetics and function. This article presents a cost effective, simple and practical method for fabricating customized angled abutments for restoring severely angled abutments. View Full-Text
