A double framework system is indicated when implant location could result in an overcontoured or compromised metal ceramic prosthesis. Precise design of the auxiliary substructure should provide for all necessary reorientations and corrections before constructing the metal ceramic framework. The additional cost and complexity of this technique must be weighed against the esthetic and morphologic requirements of the patient.
