The transmucosal height is the distance from the top of the implant to the beginning of the prosthesis. Because it is a Morse system, the implant has to be submerged in relation to the bone level (2-3mm). To that distance, add the thickness of the gum. The total value obtained should allow the formation of a new biological space. The professional must pay attention to the need to hide the end of the gum in approximately 1 mm. Those values should be measured with a trans-mucosal meter. The decision on the height can also be delayed until after the conditioning by the healing abutment, and then the component can be chosen. Important note: It is crucial to activate the selected component only after the verification that the correct height has been chosen. Otherwise, there may be loosening, sub-bracing, exposition of the prosthetic termination, etc. Besides, if there is damage during the replacement of the component, quality may be compromised.
