Screw-mentable Implant Restorations:

by Nate Heffelfinger, DDS

Intraoral scanning is quickly replacing physical impressioning as it allows “model-free” restorative fabrication. The lack of physical models reduces time and expense associated with fabrication of the restoration. However, it may create difficulty for the dentist at the delivery appointment if interproximal contacts require modification for proper fit. This presentation will highlight the screw-mentable restorative design and reveal how it helps overcome common problems encountered when delivering model-free screw-retained restorations.
