Direct custom implant impression copings for the preservation of the pontic receptor site architecture.

Abstract

The direct custom implant impression coping technique is designed to record the periimplant gingiva and pontic receptor site after the tissues have been shaped with a provisional restoration. The technique prevents inaccurate recording of the gingival architecture by using a dual polymerizing composite resin placed into the sulcus and pontic receptor sites and adapted to the open tray implant impression copings. This technique may improve soft tissue accuracy between the clinical condition and the laboratory cast.
