An implant-supported denture is used when a person does not have any teeth in the jaw but has enough bone to support implants. Treatment options can be broadly divided into the fixed implant-supported prosthesis and removable implant-supported prosthesis (overdenture). However, when such completely edentulous patients who are already rehabilitated using removable implant-supported overdentures report for a fixed prosthesis, then it becomes a challenging situation. This article describes the challenges involved in the transition of one such patient rehabilitated previously using a RP-5 prosthesis to a fixed FP-3 prosthesis.
