When osseointegrated implants first arrived in Brazil in the late 80s, great care was taken to choose implants and abutments that met the strict criteria established and recommended by major international companies so as to attain the greatest osseointegration and the best peri-implant / restorative outcomes possible. The protocols developed by Brånemark and later on by Schroeder and Schulte should be strictly followed without creating the opportunity for adaptation, as it could increase the chances of failure.
