With the growth in implant application and observing complications associated with nonpassively fit prostheses, various techniques have been proposed to enhance the accuracy of transferring implants’ position from the patient mouth to laboratory worktable. The present article introduces an applicable method for the same purpose.


The present study aims to introduce an easy and applicable method to achieve a precise impression of multiple implants in the logical timeframe with minimal effort.


Acrylic resin bars were fabricated in different widths and kept to be adapted to the position of implant impression copings for accurate impression.


The explained method could facilitate precise transferring of implants’ position from the mouth to laboratory in a practical and predictable manner.

Clinical significance

Introduction of a method providing an accurate impression of the implants with accessible equipment will significantly improve the treatment quality and prognosis.
