Case Studies

The VPI EPMS has been
developed and clinically
tested over the last
three years, consistently
proving it’s safety,
precision and efficiency.
Follow the recommended
protocols of clinical use
for optimum results.
These protocols have
been tested and proven to
be the most efficient.
The speed in which
the clinician is able to
fabricate a customised
healing abutment in
any intra oral situation
is phenomenal and the
outstanding results make
the aesthetics for the
final prosthesis seem so
simple.

VPI EPMS can also be
used for fabrication of two
piece healing abutments
and impression posts.
Also, a VPI custom abutment
can be modified to a
temporary abutment
in order to support a
temporary prosthesis,
fabricated analogically
or digitally. Innovato
Holdings offer extensive
training on how to utilize
the VPI EPMS in order
to take full advantage of
all the possibilites and
capabilities the system
can offer!

Case Study 1

Implants uncovered

VPI healing abutments
in place according to the
prosthetic plan

2 weeks post uncovery
surgery

Emergence profile
generated

Impression with VPI impression posts

VPI impression posts
ensure a secure
positioning into the
impression

Emergence profile
replicated accurately

Case Study 2

Edentulous space evaluated with VPI EP Indicator (#5.1)

Implant in place with fast surface of hex facing same direction as per the T-lines of the VPI EP Indicator

VPI Healing abutment
(#5.1) in place

VPI healing abutment
directs tissue proper
facial profile

2 weeks post uncovery,
generated emergence
profile

VPI Impression post
(#5.1) in place

Impression

Final restoration with
no black triangles and
undercut areas. Proper
prosthesis emergence profile as
generated and recorded
with the VPI EPMS

Case Study 3

VPI Healing abutments in place at uncovery surgery

16 days post uncovery procedure

Optimum shape and size emergence profile allow for
enhanced aesthetics

Case Study 4

Edentulous space
evaluated with VPI EP
Indicator (#12.1)

Place the implant with flat
surface of the hex in the
same direction (facially)
as the T lines of the tab

VPI healing abutment
(#12.1) is coupled with
the implant for evaluation

Two stage procedure was
decided and the site was
grafted and left to heal.

VPI healing abutment
(#12.1) received further
customisation to replicate
the natural emergence
profile

3 months post implant
placement, the site is
ready for uncovery

Modified VPI healing abutment (#12.1) is coupled with the implant

Two weeks post uncovery
procedure

A natural emergence
profile has been
generated

Temporary restoration with no black triangles and
undercut areas. Proper emergence profile as generated
and recorded with the VPI EPMS provided the foundation
for the ideal restoration.

Case Study 5

Teeth #2.2 & #2.3 need
extraction

Immediate implant
placement utilizing the socket
shield technique

Temporary, teeth
supported prosthesis

12 weeks post implant
placement

Implant uncovery with
prototype VPI Tissue
punch #2.1

Implant platform
exposed

VPI healing abutment
#2.1

VPI healing abutment
coupled with implant

2 weeks post uncovery
procedure

Generated emergence profile 2
weeks post uncovery procedure

Case Study 6

Tooth #2.2 post forced eruption

Flapless extraction of tooth #2.2

Space evaluation with
VPI EPI (1.1)

Immediate implant in
place with hex facing same direction
as per the VPI EPI tab (facially)

Connective tissue graft in place with vista technique

VPI healing abutment (#1.1) modified to temporary
abutment intra-orally and subsequently polished extra-orally
utilising the Easy Grip Handle and the polishing brushes and paste

Temporary prosthesis with supra-gingival borders cemented on the
modified VPI abutment

4 months and 9 months clinical image
post implant placement and non functional loading

Case Study 7

VPI healing abutments modified to temporary abutments. This process can be done both intra-orally or extra-orally.
