Alternative impression technique for multiple abutments in difficult case to control.

Jung BY, Lee KW - J Adv Prosthodont (2010)

Bottom Line: Even though excellent impression materials are now available for making accurate replication for hard and soft tissue, the numerous dentists have faced lots of obstacles in making simultaneous impressions of multiple abutments.This article describes a modified method of tray fabrication using auto-polymerizing acrylic resin and impression technique for multiple prepared teeth in cases with limitations and difficulties in taking dental impressions.This segmental tray technique has several advantages, including higher impression quality, fewer impressions, and being more comfortable for the patient and less stressful for the clinician.

Figure 5: Occlusal view of completed segmental trays and an overlay tray.

Mentions: 4. After each individual segmental tray was seated on the cast, an overlay tray was fabricated with base plate wax relief (Fig. 3). The overlay tray was precisely positioned with the aid of an indentation around each wing with 1 mm of leeway (Figs. 4 & 5).
