This picture of a dental implant and abutment was taken in Palm Harbor Fl. The arrow to the left points to the dental implant itself. The arrow on the right side points to the abutment, this is a standard straight abutment. In my dental office in the Tampa Bay area I use multiple different implant systems. The dental implant seen here is a Biohorizon Internal Hex. This implant type comes with a standard straight abutment and therefore I do not charge an additional fee for this component, it is included in the $1597 charge (as of January 2011). This procedure is done either with or without conscious sedation.
