Implant Retained Denture Process

If taking initial impressions for custom trays, just take as is. No implant parts need to be
involved.

If taking final impressions, with or without custom trays:

  • Place the impression copings directly on the locator abutments in the patient's mouth.
  • Use a PVS material with a closed tray to ensure a proper grip on the impression copings.
  • When impression is taken out, the impression copings should come out as well and be inside the impression. If they do not all come out into the impression, you will need to retake.

BITE BLOCKS:

  • Complete the bite block appointment as usual, we will incorporate the retention caps in the base plate so that the appliance can be snapped into place for each appointment.


TRY IN:
  • Complete the try in appointment as usual, we will have the retention caps incorporated so that the appliance can be snapped into place for each appointment.


DELIVER:
  • From the try in, the lab processes the denture as it was approved by office and patient. The final denture should fit and look like it did at the try in appointment.
