Temporary dental prosthesis
Often no temporary dental prosthesis is required in the posterior tooth region.
At the lowest subantral bone height hard food is meant to be chewed on the opposite side.
If there is a prosthesis, it has to be hollowed well.
There is no difficulty in this with transmucosal healing.
The healing cap can be identified in the prosthesis with Fit Checker where it can be generously hollowed, see Galery below.
In the premolar region a bridge section for the implantation can sometimes be removed leaving little residual substance and be supplemented with plastic after wound closure, see Galery below.
