Once the implant body has integrated into the jawbone, a custom abutment is fabricated. The custom abutment is a connector piece that screws into the implant to allow the implant crown to connect to the implant itself. The abutment is custom made by CAD/CAM (Computer-aided design and manufacturing) technology for each individual patient and tooth and is used to modify the gum tissue for optimal esthetics as well as correct angulation of the implant crown.
