DIRECT IMPRESSION (open tray) SET UP

Direct impression

Record on an inventory list implant brand and platform diameter. What parts (e.g. transfers, guide pins, analogs, abutments, final screws) and how many of each the dentist sent with the case.

Direct impression

Check if the Dr. sent a x-ray of the seated impression coping and examine if the transfer was seated properly on the implant in the patients mouth. Verify impression copings match information provided on the hopefully included surgical report (Implant body diameter and platform diameter can differ on the same implant depending on manufacturer). In case there is a mismatch of the impression coping diameter and the information from the surgical report (some transfers are cross compatible with other implant brands), call the Dr. to verify implant brand and diameter.

Correct seat

Do not remove transfers from impression material. Make sure impression copings are securely embedded in the impression material. Insert the fixation screw through the tray and the impression coping until the threads extend past the connecting surface of the transfer. Select appropriate implant analog (clone parts) and screw on to the

Incorrect seat

impression coping, taking care not to rotate the transfer within the impression material due to excessive force. Ensure complete and secure seating of the analog on to the impression coping. Record on inventory list what parts and how many the laboratory is supplying.
