Repositioning Technique
In Implantology, the repositioning technique is a variation of the implant impression. In this video you can see a short animation showing this dental procedure. You can observe the implant on the bone, where the impression rod is now screwed on to for the reposition technique. The impression spoon is inserted into the mouth with the dental impression material. The impression is removed after the material has hardened. However, the impression rod or rods remain on the implants and in the mouth for the time being. Only after these steps the impression rod is finally unscrewed from the implant and repositioned on the hardened cast of your teeth. Learn more about the repositioning impression technique in this video.
