Abstract

Background: The use of removable provisional prosthesis after implant placement is undesirable for many patients. In addition, removable prostheses place unfavorable pressure over implants during the healing period. Purpose: The use of temporary implants enable greater stability and functionality of the prostheses. Materials and Methods: This clinical report shows the use of temporary implants in a low density maxilla in conjunction with a fixed provisional prosthesis. Results: The temporary implants contributed to the support of the provisional fixed upper arch prosthesis and to patient comfort with a fixed prosthesis during the healing period. Conclusions: Fixed provisional prostheses are a potentially desirable alternative treatment strategy.
