Simplifying Single-Stage Solid Abutments: Part 1. Impressions

Implant Dent. 2003;12(2):160-3. doi: 10.1097/01.id.0000055824.36478.ca.

Abstract

Restoration of single-stage implants with solid abutments traditionally requires the use of an impression index cap, an analog and a lab fee commensurate with a more complex restoration. A technique is discussed that utilizes standard crown and bridge techniques that simplifies the lab procedure and reduces the prosthetic costs involved with fabrication of implant borne crowns.
