Camlog™ and Conelog® IMPRESSION COPINGS

Camlog™

Camlog™ implants and components are distributed through Henry Schein® in the USA.

Fig. 1

Indirect (closed tray) fixture level impression copings (Fig.1) consist of a three component set. The impression coping body with engaging indexing feature, a fixation screw and a plastic cap. Once the impression coping is properly seated and secured with the fixation screw, the plastic cap is pressed on to the impression coping body while three grooves machined in to the impression coping body engage three grooves inside the plastic cap. This plastic cap will be captured in the impression material and should stay in the impression material. Color coding follows the platform diameter identification scheme. Silver (no color), yellow 3.8, red 4.3, blue 5.0 and green 6.0mm.

Platform switching indirect impression copings (Fig.2) are marked with the letters "PS" printed on the impression coping body in addition to the platform dependent color coding for identification. These impression copings may only be used for SCREW-LINE™ implants with a catalog # beginning with a "K" and are not available for 3.3mm platform diameter implants.

Fig. 3

Direct (open tray) fixture level impression copings (Fig.3) consist of a impression coping body and fixation screw. The impression coping body is color coded for platform diameter identification silver (no color), yellow 3.8, red 4.3, blue 5.0 and green 6.0mm. A special feature of the fixation screw lets the operator shorten the fixation screw without rotary instruments if necessary. The screw shaft is pre scored and may be "broken" at the score line by inserting a hex driver to the score line and snapping off the excess length of the fixation screw. Shortening the screw should not be done intraorally while the impression coping is attached to the implant.

Platform switching direct impression copings (Fig.4) are marked with the letters "PS" printed on the impression coping body in addition to the platform dependent color coding for identification. These impression copings may only be used for SCREW-LINE™ implants with a catalog # beginning with a "K" and are not available for 3.3mm platform diameter implants.

Abutment level impressions are carried out with plastic impression copings (Fig.5) for Logfit® abutments only. Two white snap on impression copings are produced for Logfit® abutments. 3.8 and 4.3mm implant/abutment platform Logfit® abutments share the same dimension impression coping (catalog # J2551.4300). 5.0 and 6.0mm implant/abutment platform diameter Logfit® abutments also share the same impression coping catalog number (J2551.6000).
