Replacement of Successful Fixed Implant Prostheses Using Duplication Techniques

Newman/Watson


PMID: 9495173

Replication of desirable design features of an existing implant prosthesis is often appropriate in the construction of a replacement that produces the same spatial relationship to the supporting dental implants. An adaptation of a laboratory copy technique used in conventional complete denture prosthodontics is described. A silicone putty mold that enables the creation of the corresponding fit surface, polished surface, and archform is s ued for making a transitional or a definitive complete or partial fixed implant prosthesis. Variations using a basic replication technique are appropriate in clinical practice for refabricating a prosthesis of a preferred design. The procedure is suitable for both acrylic resin-metal or metal ceramic restorations.
