Original Cast Duplicate with area removed for implant analog placement
Implant index on duplicate cast
Analog in place using low expansion stone. Abutment on analog. Abutment fabricated from a Zimmer implant carrier and sand blasted to remove color.
Occlusal View of analog and abutment on cast. Note: it is important to contour the cast by removing unwanted stone around the abutment to allow for better emergence of the crown. The emergence may need adjusting after trying it in the mouth.
Jet acrylic in a matrix placed over the abutment site. Processed in warm water and a pressure pot.
Untrimmed provisional on cast after pressure pot curing.
Preliminary trimming of the provisional prior to polishing. Note: it will most likely be necessary to add appropriate acrylic at the cervical portion of the provisional with it off the cast, cure it again, and trim to proper contours with a bur. Careful not to touch the burn to the metal abutment.
Patient smiling with provisional crown in place.
