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

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


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 tunnel 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.

Abutments scanned without powder mediums

CAD-CAM designed temporary prosthesis

CAD-CAM fabricated temporary prosthesis

VPI Nano Flow Composite is a scannable material that can be utilized with both anagogic and digital protocols successfully
