Winged Impression Cap for Reduced Height Dental Impression Post

U.S. Patent No: 6,508,650 B2

Winged Impression Cap for Reduced Height Dental Impression Post DiagramAn apparatus and method comprised of dental implant impression mounting hardware with a non-interfering, low profile for making time saving and accurate, simultaneous upper and lower impressions and bite registration, with the mouth completely closed and the jaw accurately positioned in centric closure. A low-profile, impression post is snapped within a matching low profile, winged and perforated impression cap held securely within a self-curing elastomeric impression material. The cured impression material retains the low profile impression cap which snaps free of the mating low profile impression alignment post. The impression post is removed and attached to an analog of the permanent endo-osseal implant and snapped back into low profile impression cap embedded in the elastomeric mold. This low profile assembly prevents interference with the taking of a simultaneous upper and lower elastomer impression of the accurately interdigitated jaw using a "triple tray" while insuring excellent registration.

Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
