ABSTRACT:Dental implants are fixtures that serve as replacements for the root of a missing natural tooth. Dental implant therapy has been widely used for the restoration of partially and fully edentulous patients. Implantology currently consists of a reliable oral treatment that follows scientific and clinical evidence. Despite the proven success of rehabilitations with implants throughout a long period of time, many difficulties still persist without solution. The objective of the impression procedure in implantology is to obtain the most accurate copy of the implant analogues and the surrounding oral tissues, avoiding instabilities in the prosthetic device. Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses.
