Design Principles for Implant-Supported Provisional Prostheses

Provisional prostheses play an important role in testing prosthodontic parameters prior to construction of the definitive prostheses. These include soft tissue shaping for an optimal emergence profile and testing of the occlusal scheme. This Learning Pathway sets out an overview of the indications, materials, and techniques for fabrication and utilization of an implant-supported provisional prosthesis through a Learning Module supported by Congress Lectures, Clinical Cases, and Consensus Statements. 

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • identify the indications for implant-supported provisional prostheses
  • explain their importance for achieving optimal esthetic outcomes
  • select the appropriate type of provisional prosthesis
  • specify which materials are needed to fabricate the prosthesis
  • list the various techniques to fabricate the prosthesis
