For screw-retained cases, it is possible to create a duplicate Smart1 provisional.
This extra temporary is beneficial when adjustments have been made to the provisionals throughout the patient's healing process.
As the patient wears the provisionals, they can communicate any necessary changes, and in most cases, the changes can be made by the clinician chairside.
By the time the final restorations are ready to be fabricated, the patient and clinician have worked out and agreed to the definitive prosthesis.
This final adjusted provisional can be sent back to the lab to be duplicated in the final restorations. During this time, the patient will wear the duplicate temporarily until they receive the final restorations.
There are vital areas to consider to achieve consistent success with implant cases. Aside from the physiologic aspects such as bone considerations, placement of the implants is critical for case success.
Also, adequately designed provisional restorations using highly polishable materials such as Smart1 that act as placeholders during the healing process play a crucial role in achieving an optimal outcome.
