Soft Tissue Conditioning by Immediate Restoration of Immediately Placed Implants in Full-Arch Rehabilitation: The Double Provisional Technique

Cordaro, Luca / Torsello, Ferruccio

Pages: 216-229

The safety and effectiveness of full-arch implant- supported fixed partial dentures have been established. Thus, clinicians are now focusing on the treatment modalities that can reduce patient discomfort, treatment time, and cost, and that could enhance the esthetic outcome of the restorations. Fullarch implant-supported rehabilitations are used when the patient is edentulous or if the residual dentition has a poor prognosis. In order to improve patients’ comfort and avoid the use of a removable prosthesis, some protocols for immediate replacement of hopeless dentitions have been proposed, but there are no data on their outcomes regarding the soft tissues. The aim of this article is to describe the double provisional technique and to show evidence of its efficacy in easily achieving predictable esthetic results when immediately restoring a hopeless dentition with a fixed implant-supported restoration.
