Transitional Prostheses Used During Implant Therapy

Daniel S. Thoma

Transitional prostheses play an important role in replacing missing teeth during implant therapy, up to the point when the implants are ready to be restored.

Implant therapy often involves several clinical and laboratory stages, and transitional prostheses seek to ensure that the patient is comfortable on both an esthetic and a functional level throughout the duration of treatment.

Transitional prostheses also have important diagnostic functions, and they can be a key factor in achieving patient satisfaction with the definitive treatment outcome.

There are a number of options for transitional prostheses, both fixed and removable.

  • list indications for transitional prostheses
  • outline options for transitional prostheses
