How to get more accuracy with your impression taking for dental implants:

Always block out/ fill the screw access hole on custom or stock implant abutments prior to taking a digital or conventional impression. This provides an impression that can be printed or cast with more accuracy, predictability and success. This is why at Ambridge Ceramics we always supply an implant abutment with a temporary crown or bridge AND a metal coping or bridge frame for picking up in an impression, This helps to avoid inaccuracies in abutment replication when taking the impression. Give it a try.
