The use of implant-supported interim or provisional prostheses is a vital component in achieving predictable restorative outcomes for both partially and completely edentulous patients.1–4 Interim prostheses provide valuable information regarding the esthetics and function prior to the fabrication of the definitive prostheses.4 The form, size, contours, and alignment of the teeth can be confirmed clinically in dynamic and static conditions. Likewise, the assessment of phonetics and occlusion can also be clinically confirmed in such conditions.2–5 Interim prostheses can be used to shape the peri-implant soft tissues to develop the most esthetic soft tissue architecture and provide hygiene access.1,3,4,6 Modifications and corrections can easily be made to interim prostheses to meet the specific functional and esthetic requirements.2,4 Furthermore, interim prostheses are excellent communication tools that can be used to transfer all the necessary...
