Abstract

The conversion of a denture into an interim implant-supported, screw-retained restoration has become the standard method for immediate interim restoration in patients with complete edentulism. The most critical steps of the denture conversion process are the creation of appropriate denture access holes to prevent displacement of the denture by the interim cylinders and removal of the denture flanges to facilitate both good esthetics and accessibility for oral hygiene after the denture is connected to the interim cylinders. This article presents a digital technique for designing and fabricating an interim implant-supported, fixed prosthesis for edentulous patients. The interim prosthesis has cylinder access holes that are digitally prefabricated and a denture flange part that is designed to be easily sectioned. This technique facilitates more straightforward and efficient immediate restoration for edentulous patients after implant placement.
