Prosthetics – Snap

The following describes the impression components and procedures for the Myriad-Snap™ and Myriad-Provi-snap™ as the prosthetic platforms and components for both the implants are common and cross – compatible.

IMPRESSIONING - Myriad-Snap™

.

.

Impression procedures are recommended using the plastic snap on transfer cap that snugly fits over the ball head and onto the prosthetic platform.  Standard impression procedures ensure that the transfer cap is locked into the impression on removal and the laboratory analog is simply repositioned into the transfer cap within the impression to produce a working model.

On removal of the impression tray the transfer cap is lodged in the impression.  The snap laboratory analog is repositioned into the transfer cap assuring an accurate impression transfer of the implant to a working model.

LAB PROCEDURES - Myriad-Snap™

The following describes the laboratory procedures for a Myriad-Snap™ or Myriad-Provi-snap™ overdenture prostheses.

The working model with the transferred laboratory analogs in place.

The Myriad-Snap™ housings with the O ring matrices pressed into place on the laboratory analogs.

Before pressing the denture the undercuts should be blocked with wax exposing only the undercut on the housing to lock the housing into the denture base prior to  acrylisation.

The finished denture with the  O-ring  matrices polymeriz3ed into place.
