So, what happens to the settled science of taking bite records over the preparations when there are no preparations available, like with dental implants? The real answer is, with the absence of preparations, dentistry reverts back to bites over mucosal tissue or healing caps that have created a wave of occlusal problems for implant restorations. The studies have not changed and the dental world understands that mucosal bite records will never stand up to the exacting demands of fixed restorative dentistry. Placing a healing cap into the mucosal registration rarely works, requires an extra cap for the lab, and lacks the design to achieve a consistent, dependable outcome. Dentists rarely buy and send the lab a spare healing cap anyway. The only thing left is the old-school dependence on hand-setting the casts, which proved to be so inconsistent that it was the reason that we started using preparations for bite records in the first place. The advantages of the Implant Bite Post are numerous; the main benefits being reusability and precision. Implant Bite Posts are the perfect surrogate preparation, they work really well and they can be used over and over!
