Healing Caps

Healing caps made using biomaterials from Invibio offer excellent gingival response and colour similar to natural dentition.

Healing caps fabricated of PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer protect the margins and provide a non-metallic, neutral color similar to natural dentition. The biocompatibility means that the soft tissue gingival response is excellent.1

After completion of soft tissue healing and full integration of bone and dental implant, an abutment is attached to the implant and an impression is made of the implant abutment assembly for construction of the prosthetic crown. Pending completion of the finished crown, the exposed abutment and implant margin can be protected by coverage with a healing cap.

Our high-performance polymer technology enables device manufacturers to develop healing caps with the following advantages:

  • Non-metallic
  • Excellent soft tissue response1
  • Biocompatible2
  • Compressive strength to withstand pressure from chewing3
  • Compatible with the cement used on titanium abutments4
  • Easy debonding
  • Neutral colour similar to natural dentition
