Abstract

Abstract The long-term success of an implant prosthesis depends not only on the development of osseointegration, but also on the maintenance of osseointegration after the prosthetic phase. To achieve this, a passive superstructure must be fabricated. Errors that result from the impression transfer method of implant position during the impression procedures often made it necessary to section and solder metal frameworks repeatedly. This article presents a modified impression technique intended to deal with the problems of more traditional impressions with the aim of achieving a more accurate master cast.
