Deciding on Zirconia or Titanium Abutments  

Choosing between a Zirconia and Titanium Abutment? Here are the main parameters for choosing an abutment for a specific case:  

  1. Subgingival depth of the implant (at least 4 mm gingival level to occlusal) 
  2. The distance between the gum level and the antagonist (opposing tooth)  
  3. Occlusion
  4. Patient expectations 

Below is a helpful chart that goes over all of the different abutment options and their uses.
