A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants
and the superstructure is important
for the long term success of implants
and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the
accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is
the stability of the impression coping
in polymerized impression material.
In some circumstances, an implant
must be placed well below the gingival
margin, meaning that most of the impression
coping will also be situated
subgingivally with no contact with the
impression material. This can result
in reduced stability of the impression
coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening
the implant analog.
describes a simple technique that
involves the use of a roll of composite
resin, tray adhesive, and a small
amount of occlusal registration material
applied around a transfer coping
in a direct implant impression.

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels
A study conducted in the 1990s, demonstrated a steady rate of decline of instances of coronal caries through the 1980s. This decline was attributed to an increase in oral health education regarding diet, oral hygiene and an increased awareness about the benefits of applying fluoride-containing topical treatments such as dental sealants varnishes, foams, or gels to the teeth of individuals of all ages in moderate-to-high risk groups for caries. This presentation reviews the history, efficacy, and indications. You will learn the history of all varnishes, differences in fluoride foams and gels as well as which fluorides work best for different patients and practices.
