A technique for verifying implant analog positions in the definitive cast.

Academic Article


  • This article introduces a procedure that allows the clinician to verify the 3-dimensional spatial orientations of implant analogs in the definitive cast for a cement-retained, implant-supported prosthesis with engaging abutments. Multiple interlocking puzzle pieces are used with engaging interim abutments to verify the accuracy of the impression.
