Abstract

Aim

This clinical report describes a time-saving recording procedure for implant prosthesis.

Background

In implant prosthodontics, a few procedures have been suggested to record jaw relationships. Record bases with occlusion rims supported by healing abutments, or screw retained bases are the conventional methods used for mounting definitive implant casts in the articulator.

Technique

This article describes a simple method that enables the clinician to transfer the existing occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) and centric relation (CR) of acceptable complete denture to final fixed prostheses. Advantages and disadvantages of this procedure are also discussed.

Conclusion

The method described in this article reduces the chair time and is comfortable for both the patient and clinician.

Clinical significance

In this article, a chair side technique is presented for articulating the definitive implant casts that maintains the established OVD and CR of the patient's existing complete dentures.
