Traditional healing phases in implant dentistry are several months long and can take up to one year depending on the various procedures that are required – soft tissue grafting, hard tissue grafting, implant osseointegration. For the terminal-dentition patient, the thought of a removableprovisional prosthesis for this amount of time can cause a great amount of anxiety, and even cause patients to defer treatment.

An alternative treatment option would be guided surgery and guided prosthetics with immediate teeth. This presentation will illustrate an innovative technique that integrates various digital technologies to maximize implant stability with available bone, while maintaining prosthetic predictability and a high esthetic outcome. This alternative provides the patient confidence and comfort during the provisional phase with minimal compromise to the final prosthetic result.

Learning Objectives

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Appreciate the protocols for a digitally-planned, completely-guided surgical and restorative approach for an immediate full arch implant rehabilitation

2. Understand the surgical and prosthetic steps to deliver a stable fixed immediate provisional restoration

3. Identify patients that are appropriate for this protocol
