What is a Zirconia Hybrid Implant Abutment?
It is a hybrid abutment that utilizes a titanium insert which engages the implant connector. It has a 5mm chimney for bonding the zirconia abutment form to the titanium base. We design a zirconia transmucosal and post-shaped abutment with CAD/CAM, then mill and sinter. Once finished, the titanium insert is bonded to the zirconia abutment.
This design gives you the best of both worlds; titanium to titanium at the implant connection and a zirconia abutment for aesthetics. The minimal thickness for the zirconia is 1.0mm around the titanium interface.
