  Implant OcclusIOn

            tHE      Fx is in


Nearly 100% of restorative dentists would tell you that he or she always makes a bite record over the preparation  on every fixed restorative case. Why do they do that? They do that because there isnany other practical way to communicate the exact relationship between the upper and lower casts to their dental laboratory. The only protocol more widely accepted than bite records over preps is the need for the patient to schedule their dental appointments! Now the question is… if the lab mushave this bite record over the preparation, what happens when the preparation becomes an implantI guarantee you that the result has been catastrophic case adjustments and costly remakes but today, the fix is in!



When the preparation becomes an implant, the clinician will do one of three things:

#1 Make a bite record over the soft issue.

#2 Make a bite record over the healing abutment.

#3 Make no bite record at all. (So much for accepted science)

Lets quickly examine these three options:

#1 Occlusal records made over soft tissue only work for removable prosthetics, and plethora oempiricaevidence is available to prove that soft tissue compresses when taking a bite record over it. Accuracy lost!

#2 Making the bite record over the healing abutment is a lot like wishing your problems away because healing abutments are not designed for taking a bite record.The healing cap is too small to capture material on its apex, it is also round, so the bite will hopelessly wobble on it unless you leave a portion of the bite on the distorted tissue are for balance (Madness).

#3 Taking no bite at all belies all of the reasons why we started taking bites over   the preparations in the first place and knuckle dragging doesnt help!  


ay, we have a well thought out, perfectly designed surrogate 
        preparation that hawon the endorsement of America’s leading clinicians.
        From the very first case that the Implant BitPost (IBP) is usedthe 
        clinician can deliver a superior restoration while avoiding costly case
adjustments and remak

Occlusion – Grind em’ till they fit?

Recently, I was doing some research on occlusion and the more I read, the more I realized that the subject is one of the most controversial topics in dentistry.
