Abstract

This report describes the continued treatment of a geriatric patient with a mandibular lateral discontinuity defect and existing mandibular implantretained removable complete prosthesis opposing a maxillary complete denture. The purpose is to present a method of addressing patient concerns about existing esthetics and function using provisional restorations that permit gradual alterations to confirm operator and patient approval prior to fabrication of definitive prostheses. This technique allows the dentist to better accommodate the loss of dexterity, decreased adaptability, and other problems often complicating design of dental prostheses for aging patients.
