Abstract

An interim restoration is a prototype for the definitive prosthesis and preserves the occlusal information and the original vertical dimension of the occlusion. Several techniques have been developed to transfer the information from implant-supported fixed interim to definitive restoration. However, these conventional techniques have limitations, and they are time-consuming, require making impressions and stone casts, and mounting in an articulator. The purpose of this article was to describe a digital technique to accurately transfer the information from complete-arch implant interim restoration to definitive restorations without using definitive casts.
