The Contour Healer is a dental implant healing cap intended to guide gingival healing by replicating the anatomy of the original root form. This provides for a natural and aesthetic emergence profile for the final restoration. Contour Healers are fabricated from medical grade PEEK Classix (polyetheretherketone) applicable for use in temporary abutments. The screw is medical-grade 316 stainless steel. These devices are single-use and available to fit multiple platforms and implant brands.
- Superior Choice for Restorative Healing
- Less Chair Time
- Easy to Adjust & Polish
- Mimics Emergence of Original Tooth Morphology
How to Use
The Contour Healer temporary abutment is intended for use with root-form endosseous dental implants. This healing cap aids in prosthetic rehabilitation. The abutment is a provisional restoration that aids in creating an esthetic emergence through the gingiva during the healing period. The device is intended for single restorations in adults and should only be used for ninety days.
Summary of Healing Cap Features
Manages Tissue Contour
The most difficult stage of implant surgery is to manage the peri-implant soft tissue contour. Shape and form of the peri-implant tissues are equally as important as other important factors such as bone quantity/quality, primary stability, and bone to implant contact. The new abutment serves as a template to easily shape the soft tissue to proper form and allows the natural contours to be maintained without compromising the stability of the newly placed implant. The restorative phase is easier as the tissues are ready to be impressed along with the impression coping on the implant.
Esthetic Gingival Contour
An abutment extends above the gum and is the transgingival component. During the restorative phase, these specially designed abutments provide for a more esthetic gingival contour than a standard conically designed healing abutment.
Easy to Clean
Another important factor for implant success/survival is the ease of cleaning of the implant restoration. The soft tissues molded with this healing abutment allow for a precise soft tissue-implant crown interface facilitating peri-implant maintenance and home care.
