Description

IMPRESSION COPING FOR IMPLANT OPERATION

TECHNICAL FIELD The present invention relates to impression coping for implant treatments capable of smoothly maintaining heights and angles of impressed portions upon taking teeth impressions to perform precise treatments.

More particularly, the present invention relates to impression coping for implant treatments capable of performing precise treatments by taking an auxiliary coping together in a state fixed to an impression material upon taking a teeth impression, precisely molding a teeth pattern of a patient, and fabricating a prosthetic device in the same as a shape of natural teeth.

BACKGROUND ART In general, the implant treatments are to mold a prosthetic device of artificial teeth and join it into an abutment by mounting an screw-shaped artificial tooth root, that is, a fixture, formed in titanium(Ti) of body-friendly substance into alveolar bone by a drilling job and tightly coupling the fixture to an abutment as bone adjacent the mounted fixture is joined and hardened.

In comparison with the bridge which is the most general teeth restoration method, the implant treatments can be applied only to impaired portions without destructing adjacent teeth or soft tissue or bone tissue, and maintained and supported by the bone tissue so that force continues to be applied to the bone tissue to delay an absorption speed of the bone tissue and restore a chewing force to the same level as natural teeth as well as restore esthetic appearance nearly to the same level as natural teeth, which leads the implant treatments to a worldwide trend in restoring teeth.

In such implant treatments, it is most important to manufacture and precisely position a prosthetic device according to a teeth pattern of a patient, for which a teeth pattern of a patient is taken with an impression material, a precise teeth mold is fabricated, the most precise prosthetic device is manufactured with the teeth mold, and actual treatments are performed, the impression taking proceeds with coupling an impression coping over an abutment, covering a fluid impression material over the coupling, and taking out a teeth pattern, and, thereafter, a teeth mold is manufactured by pouring gypsum.

However, the impression material is essentially accompanied by fluidity due to its material characteristics so that errors occur to a certain extent even in case that the impression taking is precisely carried out, by which a problem is caused which does not correspond to a teeth pattern of a patient when a prosthetic device is fabricated.

Such a problem in the prior art is disclosed in the United States Patent Nos. 5,993,211 , 5,040,983, and 4,758,161

As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 3, an impression coping for implant treatments according to an embodiment of the present invention is related to a technology in which an impression coping 2 with triangular faces on its outer circumference for anti-rotation is screw-coupled to an abutment 1 to which a prosthetic device is screwed for coupling and an impression is taken by covering the coupled body with an impression material of synthetic resin having fluidity, which is pertinent to the technology used in the art so that a detailed description on the structure and operations are omitted.

An engagement groove 6 corresponding to the face part 5 formed on the outer circumference of the impression coping 2 is formed in the inner side from a lower end part to an upper end part, an undercut part 7 fixed to the impression material 4 is formed on the upper part of the outer circumference, an auxiliary coping 9 is provided on the upper end part of the outer circumference of which plural grooves 8 are formed in the same or different lengths in the same interval, the auxiliary coping 9 is coupled to the upper part of the impression coping 2, over which the impression material 4 is covered so that the auxiliary coping 9 is taken in a state fixed to the impression material 4.

At this time, a protrusion 11 is formed on the impression material 4 by an annular groove 10 formed on the outer circumference of the impression coping 2 when an impression is taken, an annular locking groove 12 is formed on the upper part of the outer circumference of the screw 3, and a locking protrusion 13 is formed on the inner side of the auxiliary coping 9 to be coupled to the locking groove 12 in the one-touch manner. Further, a step part 14 is formed on the outer circumference of the impression coping 2 to restrain an insertion depth of the auxiliary coping 9 of synthetic resin, and the step part 14 is formed in consideration of a position of the lower end part of the auxiliary coping 9 when the locking protrusion 13 inside the auxiliary coping 9 is coupled to the locking groove 12 of the screw 3.

A reference number 15 not described in the drawings denotes a fixture having threads on its outer circumference which is mounted in the 02 01886

alveolar bone after drilling.

Hereinafter, more detailed descriptions are made on impression- taking procedures in use of an impression coping for implant treatments according to an embodiment of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings.

As shown in Fig. 3, the abutment 1 is screwed with respect to a fixture 15 mounted into the alveolar bone in a screw-coupling manner, the impression coping 2 is joined with the abutment 1 by means of the screw 3 screwed to the abutment 1 , a lower end part of the auxiliary coping 9 is blocked and stopped by the step part 14 of the impression coping 2 if the auxiliary coping 9 of synthetic resin is inserted into the upper part of the impression coping 2 and pushed downwards in the drawing, and, at this time, the locking protrusion 13 of the auxiliary coping 9 is coupled with the locking groove 12 of the screw 3 in the one-touch fashion so that a position of the auxiliary coping 9 is determined.

At this time, if the impression material 4 is covered over natural teeth adjacent to an implant treatment portion, a teeth shape of a patient appears in the impression material 4 in a groove fashion, and, as the impression material 4 is separated after the impression material 4 is hardened to a certain extent, the undercut part 7 in the upper end part of the auxiliary coping 9 is taken together with the impression material 4 since it is fixed to the impression material 4.

At this time, since the plural grooves 8 having the same or different lengths are formed in the same interval from the upper end part to the lower end part of the outer circumference of the auxiliary coping 9, the auxiliary coping 9 is in a state fixed to the impression material 4 to be prevented from rotations, and its height is easily maintained by the undercut 7 of the upper end part of the auxiliary coping 9 as well.

Even though not shown in the drawings, after taking an impression, an implant analog is mounted in a position of the auxiliary coping 9 and gypsum is poured so that a teeth mold is fabricated, the implant analog is joined to the auxiliary coping 9 and can be simultaneously inserted into the protrusion 11 , which is naturally formed by means of the groove 10 of the impression coping 2 upon impression taking, formed in the impression material 4 so that a precise height can be maintained.

Accordingly, a teeth mold manufactured as above is formed in the same as the shape of patient's natural teeth, and, since a prosthetic device is manufactured for treatments in use of the teeth mold, the height and angle corresponds to natural teeth so that a prosthetic device can be prevented from movements. [Embodiment 2] Fig. 4 is an assembled cross-sectioned view for showing an impression coping for implant treatments according to another embodiment of the present invention, Figs. 5, 6, and 7 are views for showing in detail an abutment and an auxiliary coping for implant treatments according to another embodiment of the present invention, and Fig. 8 is a view for showing impression-taking procedures in use of an impression coping for implant treatments according to another embodiment of the present invention.
