Angled Tapered Abutment

Product Description
Available in 15- and 30-degree angle configurations, the Zimmer Angled Tapered Abutment promotes angulation correction for off-axis implant placement, repositioning the restorative platform to facilitate insertion of the prosthesis. The abutment’s 1.2 mm, low-profile cone is ideal for use in cases with limited interocclusal space, while the cone’s 15-degree taper allows for additional angulation correction. The ability to place implants off-axis aids in maximizing the use of available bone, avoiding the alveolar nerve and sinus, and minimizing the cantilevers for the prosthesis in multiunit, partially and fully edentulous screw-retained restorations.The Angled Tapered Abutment’s multiple cuff heights enable the clinician to select the size that best meets the patients’ soft-tissue measurements. Furthermore, this abutment features excellent strength and durability, and it is fully compatible with Zimmer Dental’s existing restorative components and the Tapered Screw-Vent Implant System. —Bob Alaburda
