Statement of problem: Provisional restoration fabrication techniques are critical in Full Mouth Rehabilitation (FMR) procedures. Traditional techniques are widely used to fabricate provisional restorations for FMR. However, newer techniques such as intraoral scanners and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) have been introduced for data acquisition as alternatives to traditional methods. The effectiveness of these newer techniques in producing aesthetically pleasing provisional restorations for FMR remains unclear.
Aim: This review article aims to evaluate the aesthetic outcomes of provisional restoration fabrication techniques such as traditional conventional methods and newer ones like using intraoral scanners and CBCT for crown and bridge fabrication for Full Mouth Rehabilitation.
Materials and methods: A literature search was conducted using electronic databases, including PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library, from inception to April 2023. Studies that reported the aesthetic outcomes of provisional restoration fabrication techniques were included in the review. A clinical protocol was set up with the current available literature.
Results: The majority of the studies evaluating the aesthetic outcomes of traditional techniques reported satisfactory results. However, studies evaluating newer techniques such as intraoral scanners and CBCT were limited.
Conclusion: The use of newer techniques such as intraoral scanners and CBCT as data acquisition methods is gaining popularity, and the available studies suggest that they produce comparable or superior aesthetic outcomes. Further research is needed to confirm these findings and determine the optimal technique for provisional restoration fabrication in FMR.
