Dental implants have proven to be a success in the past decades, however the inevitable presence of microgaps at the implant abutment interface leading to microleakage is still a distressing concern.

Measures to decrease the effect of the microgap were introduced; amongst them is the application of silicone sealing gels, such as GapSeal®.
