A temporary provisional crown is a cover that manages to have an anatomy similar to that of the tooth to be replaced and will be fixed on the implant while we wait for the final crown or bridge to be made. One of the advantages offered by these provisional crowns is that we can select and modify the shape, design and position of this to achieve our final goal of the treatment intervention rehabilitation on implants or implant placed, giving or returning the aesthetics and the function to the oral cavity of our patient. Although they are temporary, the value of the crown in terms of function is of great importance and should not be placed while the final prosthesis is being made. When dental implants have been placed, provisional prostheses are absolutely essential.
When talking about dental implants we have the idea of having a definite fixed denture with the same advantages as when we have our natural teeth (which are now absent) but we must be aware that to reach this end we must pass a series of phases and this implies not forgetting the placement of a provisional prosthesis, it is very important to start from the idea that a treatment with implant intervention has a premise that is to spend time using a removable and provisional prosthesis that has an indispensable function to ensure the final success of the treatment of dental implants placed.
This tendency of the use of a provisional prosthesis on the implants placed has as much or equal prominence as implant surgery, through it we will achieve rehabilitation immediately after the intervention, if not we provide functionality and aesthetics quickly and easily, also by placing the provisional prosthesis we can make a prognosis of the final rehabilitation and allows us to assess parameters that can also be modified from the final restoration , it can be said that it serves as a test for the final rehabilitation. The essential provisional crowns or prostheses when the rehabilitation is done with implants and it can be said that it is one of the last solutions in the current implantology we can recover the smile from the moment the implant intervention has been carried out.

In the whole process that involves the placement of implants and subsequent rehabilitation we must start with a consultation of clinical and radiographic examination with the dentist, in order to assess the oral status to know if there is any oral pathology such as the presence of periodontal disease or some sum It is important to evaluate our bone structure to know how much bone you have, whether it is enough or not.
In the case in which the bone structure is adequate and the distribution of the implants favorable, there have been no complications during the surgical intervention, it will be possible to move on to the next phase of the placement of provisional crowns or prostheses in the same visit in which The implant itself, as well as its dental sleeve, should be placed.
