Implant Level Impression

The implant level impression is a universal impression technique allowing for the fabrication of any type of restoration. This impression gives greater flexibility for the selection and modification of an abutment by a laboratory technician. It is the recommended impression technique when an implant is not ideally positioned. It is the mandatory technique for the Integrated Abutment Crown and telescopic restorations.
