Inheriting patient with old implants: restorative solutions?

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.

    get with your implant direct rep. They can identify for you. Might need better xrays.

    -implant direct rep

    did you try to unscrew the “abutments” ?
    try to take the impression of the internal portion of the head with a light body,
    this will help to identify the connection.

    Try 2.42mm internal hex abutment.Say adin ,alpha bio ,cortex etc.80% sure that will work

    Is there an IMZ rep?? Call implant direct. They own attachments international and prob have the parts.
