MegaGen Implant develops the special abutment named as Multi-unit Abutment, which can be the solution for the edentulous patients. With 4 fixtures placed into patient’s ridge and a hybrid denture on those four fix- tures, a patient can recover his or her dental condition almost completely. In most cases, Multi-unit Abutments work in a set of 2 x straight type abutment for anterior position and 2 x angled type abutment on posterior position.
Features Multi Unit Abutment
You could see how Multi-unit Abutment functions and what benefits you could get from Multi-unit Abutment are as the followings:
Two fixtures which are slantly implanted on posterior position are osseointegrated with cancellous bone. These fixtures function as dispersing vertical load on alveolar bone.
Multi-unit Abutment is only 4 fixtures + 4 abutments. It means that dental surgeon has enough places for surgery. Therefore, it will be easy to find and place 4 fixtures into ridge where abundant cancellous bone exists.
A doctor can use graft bone material if a patient dosen’t have enough alveolar bone. However, the slantly placed fixtures can overcome the patient’s insufficient bone by getting good holding strength with this angulation.
In addition, these angulated fixtures can avoid touching important anatomies, such as mandibular nerve and maxillary sinus.
