Abstract

Obtaining an accurate interocclusal record which relates the upper and lower jaws to one another is critical in the laboratory production of dental restorations. This may be particularly challenging when the configuration of missing teeth dictate that such records are dependent on the remaining mucosal tissues for support. This article presents a practical and time saving method of using implant healing abutments, located within an edentulous distal extension space, to serve as vertical stops for an interocclusal record.
