This article describes a new and cost-effective concept comprising innovative and simplified clinical and laboratory procedures for the rational fabrication of abutment-free, cast-titanium superstructures with passive fit to implants. Other alloys, such as precious metal or cobalt-chromium, can also be used. The precision of fit between the implants and superstructure is obtained by the Cresco Ti Precision method. This method is a user-friendly technology and can be adapted to most implant systems on the market. The method does not include any abutments, even when implants are positioned in extremely different angulations or inclined in a facial or palatal direction. Coupled with a simple All Parts Included (API) delivery system, the concept therefore represents an efficient treatment alternative. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2005;25:89–94.)
