Ball Abutment Selection Guidelines

Selecting a Ball Abutment:

  • Determine the size of implant platform.
  • Measure the tissue depth at its highest point from the implant platform.
  • Select the cuff height of the component 1mm longer than the tissue depth so the abutment collar protrudes slightly above the surrounding tissue.
    The options are 2mm, 4mm and 6mm.
    (6mm not available for 5.7mmD platform.)
BAC = 3.5mmD Ball Abutment
BACW = 4.5mmD Ball Abutment
BA5C = 5.7mmD Ball Abutment
           2 = 2mm Cuff Height
           4 = 4mm Cuff Height
           5 = 6mm Cuff Height
