Implants placed with post exposed through gum tissue.
The top of the implant post corresponds the base of the housing groove

A 2.5 cuff length is generally appropriate if the top of the implant post is 0.5mm above the gum tissue
3.5 mm cuff height shown. Housing groove is above gum tissue. This is an appropriate choice.
A 3.5 cuff length is generally appropriate if the top of the implant post is exposed or submerged 0.5mm below the gum tissue
4.5 mm cuff height shown. Housing groove is well above gum tissue. This is too tall.
A 4.5 cuff length is generally appropriate if the top of the implant post is submerged 1.5mm below the gum tissue
