Maintenance and final impression making

Key points

  • Enroll the patient in a maintenance program to be followed during the osseointegration period
  • If normal healing is observed schedule recalls 4 times, the first 10 days after surgery, 2,4 & 6 months post-op
  • The residual ridge should be recorded as if a complete denture were being made
  • The usual anatomic landmarks that guide the location of the occlusal plane and positions of the teeth should be recorded in the impression, so they can be used to guide the positions of the prosthetic teeth
