A BioTemps® Implant Provisional provides all the benefits of a traditional BioTemps crown, serving as a natural-looking temporary at any stage of implant treatment. It also serves a variety of functions beyond interim esthetics that can be critical to the long-term success of an implant case.
BioTemps are designed to fit passively over healing areas, helping to prevent micromovement of the implant and any associated bone grafts, shielding against occlusal stresses during osseointegration. BioTemps further serve to shape the soft tissue during the maturation phase, preparing margins, contours, papilla and sulcus for the optimal emergence profile. While helping to establish the health and shape of the soft tissues, a BioTemps provisional serves as a working prototype, allowing every aspect of form, fit and function to be evaluated in the patient’s mouth prior to the design and delivery of the final restoration. Adjustments can easily be made chairside.
BioTemps implant provisionals can be cemented or screw-retained, with screw-retained BioTemps helping to create a predictable path of insertion. A cast-metal substructure, wire or Kevlar® reinforcement can be added for additional strength where indicated.
- Working prototype allows for evaluation of shade and contours
- Trains soft tissue to match final esthetic needs
- Prefabricated provisional decreases overall chair time
