Implant Step 11: Mount Case: Highlights for this step:
Verify mounting with shim stock legend from laboratory prescription
If there is insufficient occlusal contacts on the master cast to have adequate tripodization for mounting, fabricate a triad record base for a subsequent appointment to capture the jaw relations record
Determine if restorations will be screw-retained or cement-retained using a vacuum formed splint and a long guidepin engaged in the thread of the analog.
If it is a single screw-retained unit, include engaging UCLA abutment
If 2 splinted restorations are planned, select 1 engaging and 1 non-engaging UCLA abutment if screw-retained
Splinting should be elected when there is a history of a failed implant, tilted implants, in bruxers and in those selected patients that have substantial augmentation procedures
