Fabrication of a full arch implant-supported/assisted prosthesis is technique sensitive and a complex procedure. To achieve optimal fit, esthetics, and functional outcomes, all procedural steps should be performed accurately and thoroughly. An error introduced in any one of the procedural steps will intensify during the insertion of the final prosthesis necessitating a remake. Following all the steps accurately will ensure a predictable outcome.
Please note: This is Part II of a two-part series. Full Arch Implant Prostheses: Part I - Diagnosis and Treatment Planning describe the advantages, disadvantages, indications, and contraindications for implant-supported removable and fixed dental prostheses. Each of the two courses can be taken independently and in any order.
