To all of our Keystone Zmax, Implant Direct, Zimmer, Hi-Tec, Osteoready, and BioHorizons customers:
We’ve recently received a number of phone calls and questions in regards to accurately capturing fixture level impressions. Which technique is best? What type of tray do I use? Do I need an open tray??
Over the years there have been many different techniques that have proven time consuming and often times confusing…. A little over a year ago we came across a great component from BioHorizons called the “SNAP” coping that eliminates the headache of open tray impressions, custom trays, screws, and multiple components.
The SNAP coping offers an accurate implant-level impression for single or multiple units with an easy to use closed tray, pick-up technique. This one-piece design easily snaps into prosthetic platform BY HAND, without the need for additional instruments. We have found this component to be the most accurate and user-friendly in comparison to other techniques. We still recommend open tray and other techniques for full arch cases, however this is a homerun for single units or multiple unit bridges. Further yet, this component is compatible with more than one internally hexed designs including; Keystone Zmax, Implant Direct, Zimmer, Hi-Tec, Osteoready, and BioHorizons.
