The utilization of implant‑supported crowns and bridges has become a well‑established and preferred approach in treating completely and partially edentulous states. An ideal implant position is requisite for obtaining good esthetic results and correct emergence of screw access hole. Commonly, due to insufficient bone volume, implant will be placed in available bone which leads to unfavorably placed implants. Once placed, such implants are restored by giving a cement‑retained prosthesis to avoid labial/buccal screw access holes witch are esthetically unpleasing. In such a scenario, a graftless solution would be using an angulated screw channel technology which tilts the prosthetic screw access hole emergence in a desirable direction that is more esthetic and acceptable. Angulated abutment system is unique and exclusive and are designed through computer‑aided design and computer‑aided manufacturing technologies. This system rectifies angulation issues with millimetric precision with full freedom of movement. This review article presents an overview of various types of angulated abutments commercially available. It highlights the features and angulation provision of various commercially available angulated abutments.
