Preparation

Use manufacturer's tooling to remove healing cap. For multiple units, start in the posterior and work toward anterior. Then, use manufacturer's tooling to place transfer coping. Ensure components are fully engaged before tightening screw. Take an X-ray to verify proper seating of components. Next, ensure transfer coping does not hit tray. Use heavy body vinyl polysiloxane impression material. Record impression. Finally, when impression tray is removed, the transfer coping stays in the mouth. Remove transfer coping and replace healing cap. Place transfer coping into impression, ensuring proper fit. Send to lab.

Cementation

Seat screw-retained crown. Torque screw into place per manufacturer's recommendations. Next, use composite to fill over the implant screw.
