By Dr Legros J.M and Michel J.F, senior lecturer.
Presentation of a case published in the Journal of Dentomaxillofacial Science (J Dentomaxillofac Sci) December 2019, Volume 4, Number 3 : 184-187. This document was produced by Pr JF Michel and Dr Legros.
Objective: To present a new technique that reduces the clinical stages of impression taking and implant insertion. To develop a true anatomical emergence profile with the iPhysio® Profile Designer.
Methods: This case presentation shows how to use the new iPhysio® concept to shape the gingiva during healing and how to use this abutment for impression taking before insertion of the final crown.
Results : This simplified procedure shows that Profile Designer iPhysio® abutments reduce the clinical and prosthetic steps in implantology.
Conclusion: In the future, implantology and implant prosthetics will certainly benefit from this technique and improve long-term results for patients.
