Abstract

For most of the last century, conventional complete dentures have been the standard of care and the most common treatment for edentulous patients. Technological advancements in fabrication techniques may significantly reduce the number of office visits required to fabricate complete dentures. Immediate occlusal loading with mandibular full arch prostheses has been extensively researched and is now one of the standards of care for edentulous patients. A clinical technique for converting a mandibular immediate complete denture to an interim full arch, screw-retained fixed prosthesis with novel implant restorative components for immediate loading on four implants is described.
