Abstract Synopsis


Dr. Fabio De Pascalis


Abutment in BioHPP (PEEK) SKY elegance offers an innovative therapeutic protocol and the
possibility to realize an immediate restoration of single elements or bridges with high aesthetic
characteristics after a correct planning and design. Abutment SKY elegance is a definitive
abutment, thanks to a long-lasting implant-abutment connection, it is no longer necessary to
replace it (one-time therapeutic protocol). This guarantees maximum protection of soft tissues.
The high performance BioHPP polymer, which is die cast on a titanium base with a gap-free
mechanical adhesion, thanks to its elasticity promotes osseointegration during the healing phase,
while the screw head housing in the titanium base allows a long-term connection. “Several
clinical studies have shown that BioHPP allows better adhesion of epithelial tissues compared to
The immediate restoration of a single element with an implant and a BioHPP SKY elegance
abutment can be carried out independently of the type of implant placement programmed, which
can be both post-extractive and deferred.
In the esthetic areas it is possible to insert a temporary crown, to favor the reshaping of the soft
tissues. The final crown can then be applied without having to replace the abutment. The
impression can be taken both in a traditional and digital way with an intraoral scanner.
