Transitional Prostheses

Transitional prostheses play an important role in implant therapy particularly, when it involves several clinical and laboratory stages. They can be fixed or removable, but their common aim is to ensure that the patient is comfortable on both an esthetic and functional level throughout the duration of treatment. With this aim in mind, this Learning Pathway discusses the indications and design principles for transitional prostheses together with the various options and their respective advantages and disadvantages. The Learning Pathway is based on a Learning Module supported by lectures and clinical case examples that demonstrate the various transitional options.

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

  • list indications for transitional prostheses
  • outline design principles for transitional prostheses
  • describe options for transitional prostheses
  • discuss advantages and disadvantages of fixed and removable transitional prostheses
  • select an appropriate transitional prosthesis based on clinical considerations
