Implant is defined as any object or material, such as an alloplastic substance or other tissue, which is partially or completely inserted or grafted into the body for therapeutic, diagnostic, prosthetic, or experimental purposes (GPT 9) . Dental implant is defined as a prosthetic device made of alloplastic material(s) implanted into the oral tissues beneath the mucosal and/or periosteal layer and on or within the bone to provide retention and support for a fixed or removable dental prosthesis; a substance that is placed into and/or on the jaw bone to support a fixed or removable dental prosthesis (GPT 9) . Dental implant commonly known as the 3rd dentition, is the choice of prosthetic treatment modality for the restoration of partially and completely edentulous patients. Implantology consists of oral rehabilitation following the scientific rationale. Despite the success of the dental implant prosthetic rehabilitation over a long period, the failures are still bound to occur. The main goal of the implant impression procedure is to obtain the exact replica of the implant analogues and the associated oral tissues i.e. both hard and soft tissues, avoiding instabilities in the prosthetic device. The most precise and the passive fit of the dental implant with the superstructure ensures long-term success of the implants as well as the final prosthesis.
