The connecting element between fixtures and dental crowns which
penetrates the soft tissue between the jawbone and the oral cavity.
Material which does not have a harmful effect on biological
tissue. The metal titanium is an example of a biocompatible substance.
A permanent prosthetic structure which only imposes a load on
the wearer's teeth. Can also be performed using attachments and support
In the Procera® technique, the industrially-produced inner core

Relatively common in the earth's crust. In alloyed form, titanium is
being used increasingly in the ceramic, aircraft and aerospace
industries. Its biocompatible properties enable it to be used in
prostheses inserted during surgery. The ability of titanium to establish
direct contact with bone tissue is well-documented. Also the name of the
