Rights and Permissions

Owing to anatomic considerations, implants could be inadvertently placed in less than ideal positions. These misaligned Implants in partially edentulous arches can be difficult to restore with conventional abutments and may necessitate implant removal in severe angulations. We present a case restored with a UCLA abutment due to buccal angulation of implant fixture in the posterior mandible and emphasize the need for adequate running room in such cases. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • UCLA abutments offer a way of the prosthetic correction of inadvertent surgical placement of dental implants.
  • Provision of adequate running room by the surgeon at the time of placement makes prosthetic rehabilitation easier.
  • Adequate running room also decreases the periodontal procedures that might be required.
