Laser-Lok restorations are intended to create a connective tissue seal around the abutment, protect the bone, and maintain esthetics over time. When planning a Laser-Lok restoration, Laser-Lok components should be used during the healing, temporization and final abutment phases. When a Laser-Lok component is removed and the biologic seal disrupted, use a new Laser-Lok component to establish the soft tissue connection again. Flares to 5.5mm in diameter. Hand-tighten with the .050" (1.25mm) Hex Driver.
