For the successful outcome of implant rehabilitation, a functional prosthesis is as significant as an uneventful surgery. A variety of abutment designs are available for the restoration of a single tooth implant. These variations are an outcome of the requirement for the better orientation of the implant to the occlusal plane and to adjust the abutment according to the given implant position and angulation. Varied clinical situations may preclude traditional abutments and require special or customized abutments. Moreover, there is a requirement to develop an alternative to resolve the frequent problem of screw loosening observed in the screw-retained abutments. This paper discusses a new and easy approach for the fabrication of a cemented custom-made cast post-and-core abutment to be used with all types of implant systems.
