Balaguer-Martí, Peñarrocha-Oltra D,Peñarrocha-Diago M, Agustín-Panadero R. A versatile snap-on, metal-to-metal connection system for direct immediate loading with screw prostheses. The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry. 2016.
This technique introduces a system of abutments with a pressure or friction fitting to retain implant-supported prostheses. The system combines the chief advantages of cement and screw-retained prostheses, which are passively fit and easily removed from the mouth, respectively. This system provides an alternative to conventional immediate loading systems, since it allows easier adjustment and modeling of the prosthesis with a snap-on connection and easier removal from the implants.
