ABSTRACT

Specialist literature shows that the repeated disconnection of the transmucosal components can generate tissue recession due to the alteration of the delicate environment created between the abutment and surrounding soft tissue. This article will analyze two different techniques of creating the final abutment in the pre-surgery phase, evaluating 2 failing central incisors considered suitable for the immediate tooth replacement technique.
