Polymers for healing caps on titanium implants -

Healing caps are used during the healing period after abutment connection on titanium implants of the Branemark type. These healing caps consist of a screw embedded in polyamide-6 (PA-6) which is considerably weakened during this healing period. The properties of PA-6 and poly(4-methyl-1-pentene) (PMP) were studied
