Aim: To introduce an angled abutment transfer jig that splints abutments securely together to facilitate easy and quick orientation. Background: Transferring angled abutments from cast to patients’ mouth could be tasking and time-consuming. Transfer jigs are often used to facilitate orientation of abutments into implant fixtures. However, with the available jigs, abutments could move out of place and thus pose a hassle in repositioning. Technique: This technical report introduces an angled abutment transfer jig that consists of two impression copings screwed onto angled abutments which are splinted together with red acrylic resin. Access to abutment screws is feasible through slots created in the impression copings. Conclusion: The introduced jig is rigid and thus ensures very accurate and easy transfer of abutments into implants followed by accurate prosthesis seating. Clinical significance: This transfer jig design allows clinicians to transfer the orientation of angled abutments from cast to patients’ mouth with optimal speed and precision.
