Advances in fabrication technology allow implant cases to be quickly and easily customized to suit every patient’s anatomy and esthetic needs. Our team of implant specialists work hand in hand with the largest manufacturers, including Nobel Biocare®, Straumann®, Zimmer, Astra 3i and Keystone to ensure full FDA 510(k) compliance. From single-unit cases to complex hybrid cases, our implant team is adept in collaborative case planning.
Use manufacturer’s tooling to remove healing cap. For multiple units, start in the posterior and work toward anterior. Then, use manufacturer’s tooling to place transfer coping. Ensure components are fully engaged before tightening screw.
Take an X-ray to verify proper seating of components. Next, ensure transfer coping does not hit tray. Use heavy body polyvinylsiloxane impression material. Record impression. Finally, when impression tray is removed, the transfer coping stays in the mouth. Remove transfer coping and replace healing cap.
For multiple units, start in anterior and work toward posterior. Check fit of impression coping into impression. Send to lab.
Seat abutment. Torque screw into place per manufacturer’s recommendations. Next, use composite to fill over the implant screw.
