Patients with hopeless residual dentition due to advanced periodontal disease or failing fixed or removable partial dentures frequently present with difficulties and concerns regarding the provisional phase until their final prosthetic restoration. As removable dentures are generally not preferred – not even as a provisional – the transition to a fixed rehabilitation should be quick, aesthetically appealing and restoring function in terms of chewing as well as phonetics. The immediate All-on-4® implant treatment concept at the Academy for Oral Implantology in Vienna (Austria) relies on implant placement at the day of tooth extraction and immediate fixed restoration within a few hours. The key factor is the placement of angulated implants (to avoid vital anatomic structures as well as invasive bone grafting procedures) that allows for immediate occlusal loading due to the increased anchorage in the native jawbone. Highly aesthetic provisional implant bridges can thus be provided at the day of surgery.
