Anatomic Healing Cuffs

Courtney W. Shelbourne, DMD

 

Dr. Shelbourne is proud to be the first surgeon in SC to use Nobel Biocares Anatomic Healing Cuffs.

Nobel Biocare has just developed a simple, yet novel approach to improving the restorative management of an implant. Their new anatomic healing cuffs mimic the future restoration and emergency profile much much better than the standard stock abutments we are accustomed to. The cuff, made of PEEK material, is simple to adjust if necessary prior to positioning. Currently, the abutment only comes in sizes/shapes appropriate for the posterior dentition. This cost-effective solution is sure to set the standard for soft tissue development prior to restoration. Whenever possible, Dr. Shelbourne will certainly use this approach to allow for the best possible restorative outcome.
