Slim Fit was designed and validated in line with a trend in modern implantology that opts for prosthetic components that do not interfere with peri-implant tissues and can also be placed during surgery. It would, however, be a limitation to consider Slim Fit just to be a multi unit abutment.

It should be described as an essential component in carrying out non-bone prosthetic restorations and promoting an organic seal after gingival tissue has healed, for single implants as well.
