Two-step (spacer used with the putty impression first and then the wash stage) impression technique is commonly used for making impressions in conventional fixed dental prosthesis. Impressions for implant fixed restorations are usually taken in 1-step. This article describes two-step impression technique for the implant fixed restorations. With the 2-step putty-wash impression technique described in this article, pressure developed on the impression analogues is negligible hence more accuracy and less deformation can be achieved.
