Analog Impression

This Learning Pathway addresses all aspects of analog (conventional) impression techniques for fixed implant-supported prostheses. It describes a prosthodontically driven approach to planning, preparation and making an analog impression. A systematic workflow with logical steps is advocated to determine choice of implant impression component and related impression technique.

The Learning Pathway also covers tissue shaping in the transition zone via a provisional prosthesis and transfer of this custom soft tissue emergence profile via the analog impression.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • define analog (conventional) implant impression
  • list the essential requirements of a conventional implant impression
  • select conventional implant impression components and techniques
  • outline a prosthodontically driven workflow of a conventional implant impression
  • explain the purpose of tissue shaping in the transition zone
  • describe the specific impression technique and workflow for transfer of custom soft tissue emergence profile of implant prostheses
