VPI Emergence Profile
Mold

The VPI EP Mold is an in-office tool used
for the fabrication of custom shaped
healing abutments and impression posts
made out of composite material.

It can also be used for the duplication of a modified healing abutment or temporary prosthesis to a duplicate impression post. It features 27 wells that can be used for all of the above purposes.

The tools of the VPI EP Mold
system are:
• VPI EP Mold base:
v.04 – for implants with trilobe prosthetic connection
v.05 – for implants with CrossFit™ prosthetic connection
v.06 – for implants with 45’ internal hexagon prosthetic connection
• VPI EP Mold Silicone
Insert 1.5mm
• VPI EP Mold Silicone
Insert 2mm

How it works

Each well of the Mold
has two types of coding,
numbers and letters, that
correlate with the coding
of the VPI EP Indicator.
This ensures precise
communication between
dentists and their
assistants, and ease when
correlating the shape and
size of each well with the
emergence profile shape
and size to be generated
in the mouth, as this has
been depicted by the VPI
EP Indicator.

The Silicone Insert of
the VPI EP Mold has two
functional positions:
Position A functions with
specific sized prosthetic
connections.
Position B functions with
various sized prosthetic
connections of the same
type.
Both positions A & B allow the
clinician to utilize the same
wells of the mold with different
size prosthetic connections,
increasing the versatility of
the system. e.g the same well
in position A is functional with
a 3.5 prosthetic platform and
in position B with a 4.3 or 5
prosthetic platform abutment
and impression post.

Outside Row

Anatomical shaped wells (12) that correspond in shape
and dimensions with the tabs of the VPI EP Indicator, with
a coding number that ranges from 1.1 to 12.1.

The 1.1, 2.1 and 3.1 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of anterior teeth
(S/M/L).
The 4.1, 5.1 and 6.1 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of premolars
(S/M/L).

The 7.1, 8.1 and 9.1 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of large premolars
and small molars
(S/M/L).
The 10.1, 11.1 and 12.1
tabs correspond to root
trunk shapes of large
molars (S/M/L).

Inside Row

Cylindrical shaped wells (12) that correspond in shape
and dimensions with the tabs of the VPI EP Indicator, with
a coding number that ranges from from 1 to 12.

The 7.1, 8.1 and 9.1 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of large premolars
and small molars
(S/M/L).
The 10.1, 11.1 and 12.1
tabs correspond to root
trunk shapes of large
molars (S/M/L).

The 7, 8 and 9 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of large premolars
and small molars
(S/M/L).
The 10, 11 and 12 tabs
correspond to root trunk
shapes of large molars
(S/M/L).

The VPI EP Mold is an in-office tool used
for the fabrication of custom healing
abutments and impression posts aiming
to the generation and accurate recording
of a natural emergence profile.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Follow the same steps 1,2,3 utilizing an
impression post for fabricating the custom
duplicate impression post.

Duplication Process

The VPI Mold can be utilized for the
duplication of the sub-gingival portion
of a modified healing abutment or a
temporary prosthesis to a duplicate
impression post.

Three duplication wells, compatible with different
prosthetic platform sizes, can be utilized for this purpose.

Modified Abutment

Modified-Abutment

If modification of the subgingival
portion of the
custom healing abutment
has been initiated, the
duplication process must
be used.

Step 1

Choose the desired
duplication well, coat
with vaseline and couple
thread the modified
healing abutment or
temporary prosthesis.

Step 2

Fill the open space
with only clear silicone
material.

Step 3

Let the silicone set
for approximately 3-6
minutes according to
manufacturer guidelines.

Step 4

If modification of the subgingival
portion of the
custom healing abutment
has been initiated, the
duplication process must
be used.

Step 5

Choose the desired
duplication well, coat
with vaseline and couple
thread the modified
healing abutment or
temporary prosthesis.

Step 6

Fill the open space
with only clear silicone
material.

Step 7

Let the silicone set
for approximately 3-6
minutes according to
manufacturer guidelines.

Attention! Once the duplication process is complete,
remove the silicone from the well immediately.

Modified Impression Post

The generated custom
impression post is
an exact duplicate of
the modified healing
abutment at least at its
sub-gingival portion.
