Abstract

This article describes a technique for the clinical insertion and use of specially designed screws as fixed intraoral reference and attachment points in implant dentistry. After insertion, these screws serve to stabilize radiographic and surgical templates in the completely edentulous patient. This approach provides the advantage of guiding maintenance of the correct occlusal vertical dimension and ensuring accuracy and stability during subsequent phases of treatment.
