Abstract

The traditional prosthetic steps in the fabrication of a fixed complete denture after implant osseointegration include final impression, verification of implant positioning in the working cast, mounting of the working cast, and mock denture wax trial insertion prior to the laboratory fabrication of the metal substructure; however, in patient scenarios of immediate loading of implants, the interim conversion prosthesis can be used to advance from the final impression to the milling of the underlying framework in one appointment. Consistency in the initial wax trial insertion, radiographic guide, and intraoral positioning of the conversion prosthesis can result in a well-designed definitive prosthesis in less time with the use of the existing duplicate complete denture.
