I have found that Injectafil is the most convenient material to use (in my hands) for connecting multiple implant impression analogs, obviously on a network of floss. No light curing being utilized.

Why would you want to do this for the impression in the first place??

I could see using it for the verification jig, but there are much less expensive products available for lab use for that function.

Even with zero expansion die stone, the possibility of movement of copings exists. Since implants don't have PDL's, the forgiveness of slight misfit in null when connecting multiple units in final restorations. Open tray impression copings fused with resin combined with zero expansion stone minimizes the chances of extra appointments.

FWIW, I connected twice in the past month i had to connect Pterygoid implants to conventional max implants; the path of draw was excruciationgly poor; The Injectafil was strong enough and was so quick and easy , even with the location of the pterygoid implants. i chuckle thinking about the old days when I used GC Pattern Resin to do this. It was grueling.

Make your life easier, take your initial impression without connecting the implant transfers. Then have the lab (or you) make a verification index with GC pattern resin, or now they have light cure materials specifically for this. If one or more implants is off slightly, you can section and re-link in the correct location. The lab can then trephine out the implant on the final model, attach a new analog to the corrected index and use some new stone to mount the analog in the correct orientation in the model.

I'd NEVER fart around with trying to tie the impression transfers from the start when it's so much easier on the model....

Extra lab fee and extra appointment (your chair time expense and pt's time)is the cost you have chosen. It also involves more of your time non-chairside.
It takes less time to connect the copings at impression appointment then it takes to break down and set up the operatory.

You have done a good job at describing the alternative procedure, thank you.

It's not an extra appointment because I would never proceed without a verification index regardless of the technique of the initial impression.
