Looking at the Micromovements at the Implant-Abutment Interface
A study done on implant-abutment connections indicated that, under repeated pressure, micro-movements can occur with clearance fit implants. Presumably, micro-movements occurring from repeated pressure and normal function can have an effect on bone resorption and may lead to contaminated liquid entering the implant.
This in-vitro study was done on a variety of implant systems, with both clearance fit and precision conical connections. All the implant systems in this study were given the same force of 200 N and measured radiologically with a professional high speed digital camera at 1,000 images per second.
The implants offered by Implant Logistics have tapered connections, and are not susceptible to opening up under force.
