Pick-Up Technique
The pick-up technique is a special implant moulding methodology used in the field of dental surgery for restoring implants without having to replace them. Presently, dentists follow two impression methods for performing implant restorations viz., the pick-up technique and the repositioning technique. The first one and the most commonly used one is the pick-up technique. This technique is used by dentists when the implants are located right in the front of the mouth and can be accessed easily by hand. For obvious reasons, this technique is also known as "Open Tray technique". Alternatively, we have the repositioning technique is used by dentists in conditions when the pick-up technique is not possible. Kindly have a look at the video "reposition technique" to get a better idea on this dental procedure. It must be noted that when the new dental implants are fully healed, the exact location of the implantation in the mouth has to be calculated in order to allow the dental technician to produce an accurate cast model.
