Comparison of implant cast accuracy of multiple implant impression technique with different splinting materials: An in vitro study

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Introduction:: An accurate and passive fit of implant framework prosthesis, as well as the successful surgical operation is suggested as one of the critical requirements for long-term implant success.

Objective:: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the accuracy of the master cast using open tray impression technique with conventional and novel splinting materials.

Methodology:: A mandibular reference model with four ADIN implants was done. Ten custom trays were fabricated using the light curable resin sheets. Medium body polyether impression material was used. These trays were randomly divided between the two groups, with five trays in each group. Impression techniques were divided into two groups namely: Group A: Direct impression technique with open tray impression copings splinted with autopolymerizing acrylic resin (GC pattern resin). Group B: Direct impression technique with open tray impression copings splinted with Pro-temp TM 4 (bis-GMA) syringable temporization material. Thus, final impressions were made. Total of 10 master casts were fabricated. Evaluation of casts using Dynascope-Vision Engineering, TESA microhite two- dimension and coordinate measuring machine were used.

Results:: Statistical comparisons were made using ANOVA test and post-hoc test. Same amount of deviation values obtained with resin splinted and bis-GMA splinted impression copings.

Conclusion:: The master cast obtained by both the splinting material exhibits no difference from the reference model. So bis-GMA can be used, which is easy to handle, less time consuming, less technique sensitive, rigid, and readily available material in clinics.

Figure 16: Comparison of inter implant distance in Y-axis (values in mm)

Mentions: The difference in inter implant distance in Y-axis ranged from 216 μm to 180 μm for impressions with resin splinted copings, 398–926 μm for impressions with bis-GMA splinted copings. Maximum differences were seen in D3y (distance between implant replica 1 and 4) values in Group B. A similar trend in dimensional distortion was evident in all the groups except that the amount of distortion varied within the groups [Tables 3 and 4 and Graph 2].
