Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the effect of splinting on the accuracy of impressions made for ALL-ON-FOUR Implant situation-A treatment protocol.

Material and Methods: A reference model of an edentulous mandible was made using clear Acrylic Heat cure. Four implants were placed according to all on 4 concepts where two implants that were straight, placed in the anterior region and the other two were placed at posterior region that were placed at an angulation of 45 degree. Impressions were made using regular body addition silicone and the cast were further divided into three groups i.e., Non splinting, splinting using pattern resin and splinting using flowable composite. X axis, Y axis and Z axis were measured using a CMM and the data was collected and analyzed statistically and finally the result was obtained.

Results: splinting showed more accuracy than the non-splinted group. Splinting using pattern resin showed no significant difference in comparison with the flowable composite.

Conclusion: Results showed that pattern resin as well as flowable composite had more accuracy than the non-splinting group and can be recommended for splinting of all on 4 impression copings as they exhibited similar results to the reference model.

Keywords: Splinting, All-on-Four, Pattern Resin, Flowable Composite
