Inheriting patient with old implants: restorative solutions?

Last Updated April 03, 2018

I have inherited a patient with two old implants in the 21 and 22 region. They have an internal hex but the crowns that were originally on them have been destroyed. I have found two old screws that fit snugly.
I cannot seem to identify the type of implant and the patient has no information. I would appreciate any advice on how to take pickup impressions of the implant heads so that I can fabricate two new crowns. If anyone knows the type of implant that would be perfect! Thanks in advance.
