Implant Impression
An implant impression serves to transfer the position of an implant from the jaw to a plaster model. After taking the implant impression, the dental technician is able to produce a suitable denture, e.g. an implant tooth. Consequently the casting is the first and most important stage on the production of an implant tooth. Inaccuracy during the impression can result in a faulty denture, which has to be then re-polished for a better fit. We distinguish two different implant impression techniques: The pick-up and the repositioning technique. The pick-up technique is more precise, but requires more work on the part of the dentist. Find more information on both these techniques in the videos by the same names.
