How to make the best impression with a dental implant?

Fixed and removable restorations, such as single crowns, fixed bridgework, and implant-supported dentures, are retained by dental implants. Dental implants have a very high success rate and a well-established technique. Implant dentistry is already widely used in dental offices and is a sizable source of income. Demand for the treatment will only rise as patient awareness rises.

Experienced practitioners are aware of the importance of meticulous implant placement and early planning. Giving the patient a successful prosthesis that closely replicates the look and function of natural teeth requires a precise implant impression. Accurately documenting the coronal position of the implant fixture head in respect to other oral structures is the main goal while taking an implant impression. To obtain a passive fit and long-term success, the doctor must properly fit the prosthesis once it has been created and placed in the mouth.

The Implant Components' Identification

Finding the components of the implant is the first stage in the process because it will determine the materials utilized for the impression. It is necessary for each implant system to use a unique set of imprint components that are made to exactly fit onto the fixture head of the implant. Although it might seem simple, this step is not always easy, and it may be essential to consult the patient's notes. The components and methods required for taking an impression are comparable after the implant system has been selected.

How To Choose An Impressions Tray

Impression trays can be pre-made or created to order. Custom-made trays are typically a superior option because they are more sturdy and are constructed to use an ideal thickness of imprint material. Open or closed trays are the two types of trays typically used in implant prosthodontics. An open tray differs from a closed tray in that it provides the clinician with direct access to the implant fixture head while the tray is in the patient's mouth.

Making An Individual Impression Tray

To create a bespoke imprint tray, a main impression is necessary. The basic model will give you a fair concept of how the dental implants should be angled and placed. The technician can lay down the required spacer by knowing which imprint material to use. A bespoke tray can be made to take an impression at either fixture head level, at abutment level, or both levels simultaneously.

Selecting Presentation Materials

The impression substance you use should be precise, simple to mix, and quick to set. It must maintain dimensional stability after being taken out of the mouth. The imprint substance, such as vinyl poly siloxane or polyether polymers, should have good flow and a high tear strength in order to accurately portray the tissues. Hydrophilic and well-wettable impression materials have attractive qualities.

How To Choose The Right Screwdriver

An essential piece of equipment, an implant screwdriver is used to tighten and loosen implant components on the fixture head. The shape of screwdriver heads can be altered to fit inside a torque device depending on the implant system.

Abutments Or Healing Caps

A healing abutment or cap is often screwed onto the fixture head at the time of implant placement or during a subsequent surgical procedure to reveal the implant, with the fixture head typically being level with the alveolar bone crest. The surgeon will choose a proper size to shape the peri-implant tissues during healing. Healing caps or abutments come in a variety of heights, profiles, and widths. To accurately gauge the thickness of the soft tissues and allow enough room for the implant components, your dental lab will need to know the height of the healing abutment when creating a custom-tray.

Impression Management

While taking the imprint, an impression coping is attached to the fixture head or implant abutment. The imprint coping is kept in the mouth when the impression is removed when a closed tray is utilized. The imprint coping stays in the impression when used with an open tray and is removed. The impression copings will transfer the position of the implant abutment or fixture head to the working model after the impression has been cast.


Abutments might be pre-built or specially made to meet the patient's aesthetic requirements. Abutments that are built specifically for each patient are usually created using CAD/CAM technology and are intended to conceal the connection between the abutment and the crown. Typically titanium, but occasionally zirconia.
