A successful implant case starts with proper centric relation, implant position planning, the right scanning and implant surgical guides as well as verification indexes and insertion keys. Joachim Mosch, MDT, explains how these splints, guides and keys can be economically made with Primosplint light-cured composite splint material. He also covers how to precisely and quickly fabricate single-unit to full-arch implant cases using Metacon light-cured wax. The Metacon waxup polymerizes into acrylic when light cured, allowing you to precisely check the fit before casting, even intraorally. Various approaches to welding implant-borne structures are explored, either when the parts are cast, assembled with pre-fabricated implant abutments and bars, or are CAD/CAM milled. The primotec phaser pulsed micro arc welding units can help with these cases with efficiency at very reasonable investment costs.
