The transmucosal height comprises the distance from the top of the implant to the beginning of the prosthesis. Because it is a Morse system, the implant should be submerged in relation to the bone level (2-3mm). At this distance, the gum thickness is added. The total value obtained should allow the formation of a new biological space, and the rehabilitator should be aware of the need to hide the gingival terminus in approximately 1mm. These values should be measured with the transmucosal meter. The decision about height can also be postponed after conditioning by the healer, and only then make the choice of component.
It is essential to activate the selected component only after certifying the correct height has been selected. Otherwise, there may be loosening, understeering, exposure of the prosthetic termination, etc. In addition, if damage occurs during component replacement, the quality of the connection may be compromised.
