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.
