Precision of impression is one of the keys for the success of implant-prosthetic rehabilitation. The choice of correct techniques, performance materials, and operator skills, can improve the accuracy of impression. The proposed technique describes a modified pick-up impression technique, both for single and multiple implants, aiming to combine the advantages of direct technique (open-tray or pick-up impression) with those of indirect technique (closed-tray or transfer type impression technique) in order to improve the accuracy of implant impression.
