  1. Richard D. Cottrell, DDS says:

    Stock abutments are a design challenge. Removing the cement on the mesial and distal of this design may be difficult as the margins will be more subgingival compared to the facial and lingual. If there is distal fixture angulation the mesial margin will likely be buried even further. I would prefer a design that allowed for some modification, but the market demand is for something that works right out of the package. Unfortuantely, that probably is seldom going to be the case, but I would like to be wrong in my assesment.
