Abstract

Removal of excess cement is important to prevent biological complication in cementation of implant restoration with subgingival margin. It can be difficult to completely remove excess cement. Several techniques have been introduced to minimize excess cement using abutment replica. In this case report, a simple method for making abutment replica with hot melt adhesive material in dental office was described. This technique is simple and effective because it can be used for pre-fabricated or custom abutment without additional laboratory procedure. In addition, it can minimize excess cement after cementation of implant restoration.
