After healing around the implant has occurred, your implant is ready to have a crown placed. In order to make a custom crown for your implant, impressions of your implant and teeth are necessary. This can be completed by taking traditional impressions, where a tray with impression material is inserted into the mouth and is held in place until the impression material hardens. Another method for taking impressions is through the use of digital technology. Digital impressions can be taken of the implant and teeth using a scanner and sent electronic to the dental laboratory for abutment and crown fabrication. The digital impressions can take 15-20 minutes to complete.
