Implant overdenture impressions

Key points

  • Impressions can be made with open tray or closed tray techniques
  • Impressions can be made with splinted or non-splinted impression copings
  • Digital impressions offer advantages in terms of the digital workflow, and provide treatment convenience for patient and clinician
  • For digital impression taking, scan bodies are used instead of transfer copings
