Title: Impression techniques in implantology

The impression step represents the first stage in making the prosthetic superstructure. It consists in transfering the clinical status to the working model. There are several impression techniques:  direct technique or pick-up which is also called open impression, indirect or repositioning technique and digital impression.

Each of these techniques has both advantages and disadvantages. Digital impression has the most advantages, being also a big step forward in dentistry.
