  • It may be used for single or multi-unit screw or cement-retained restorations.
  • It may correct angles up to 30 degrees when cast as a custom abutment.

* UCLA Gold Hexed Abutments do not include the screw. The final Gold-Tite Screw (IUNIHG) or the Titanium Screw (IUNIHT) must be ordered separately.
