Better for Implant Surgeons, Restorative Dentists, Lab Technicians, and, most of all, Patients

Implant surgeons can welcome the Anatotemp anatomic dental implant healing abutment as an off-the-shelf solution that aids in creating an esthetic emergence through the gingiva during the healing period. By using the Anatotemp system, implant surgeons are able to create an effortless restorative process for their restorative dentists and lab technicians. For practitioners performing all aspects of implant dentistry, Anatotemp makes it possible to greatly improve workflow and results.

Restorative dentists may enjoy both the ideal tissue contour while taking impressions (whether traditional or digital), and the enhanced ease of seating restorations. Occlusal adjustment due to insufficient seating may be vastly minimized. Finally, enhanced tissue contour can lead to optimum esthetics.

Dental laboratory technicians can appreciate the ideal gingival contour, allowing them to create an ideally shaped dental restoration. Gone will be the days of inferior shaped crowns or lollipop effect due to minimal gingival opening.

Patients may reap the benefits of knowing their surgeon, restorative dentist, and lab technician are utilizing all available resources to create the ideal dental restoration resulting in optimal esthetics, function, and hygiene.

The Challenge

For years implant dentists have used conventional round healing abutments, thereby creating a round gingival opening. This practice has led to numerous challenges including:

  • Challenges with impression taking
  • Challenges with restoration fabrication and inferior crown shape due to sub-optimal gingival contour
  • Additional surgical intervention at time of restoration seating to create more space



  • Blanching of gingival tissue at time of restoration seating
  • Incomplete restoration seating due to an inadequate gingival opening
  • Cement extrusion due to difficulty in seating restoration and difficulty instrumenting between tight gingiva and restoration
  • Although custom healing abutment procedures do exist, these can lead to increased chair time, and can be labor and laboratory intensive

The Solution

The Anatotemp anatomic dental implant healing abutment is an off-the-shelf solution that:

  • Anatomically contours soft tissue during the healing process
  • Possesses interproximal concavities against which bone or bone grafting material can be placed after the Anatotemp has been completely seated and secured.



Anatotemp shapes and sizes were designed using an exhaustive cone beam CT study, enabling the formulation of average sizes that are ideal for an off-the-shelf component.

The six shapes include:





Maxillary/Madibular Premolar Mandibular Canine


The Anatotemp dental implant healing abutment is available in six anatomic shapes and numerous anti-rotational connections. When choosing Anatotemp shape and location, you may want to reference the Anatotemp Shape Location Guide

Maxillary Lateral/
Mandibular Incisor




Patented Shape

The anatomic shape and bilateral interproximal concavities aid in the contouring of the gingiva as well as stabilizing interproximal bone grafting material.


The Anatotemp is made of a biocompatible, medical-grade, smooth plastic that is hygienic and gentle on tissue.

Anti-rotational Connection

Anatotemp is designed for use with the most common anti-rotational connections to prevent the Anatotemp from rotating and is secured with a titanium abutment screw. Connections include internal hexagon, internal tri-lobe, internal conical hexagon, internal 4side, and internal octagon. Additional connections continue to be developed.

Sterile Medical Packaging

All Anatotemps are provided sterile and are packaged with the corresponding titanium abutment screw in a PETG medical tray with Tyvek pull lid.
