These prostheses are prepared by your physician using CAD/CAM systems during the session in which your tooth is abraded for crowning. Although they may not be aesthetic enough, they are useful against cold and hot sensitivities and they also protect your teeth. In some cases, temporary prostheses are prepared in the laboratory, and fixed to your teeth the next day. The appearance of those that are prepared in the lab.


Making a Temporary Fixed Crown

Temporary fixed prostheses are cemented or screwed in and cannot be removed by the patient, and are made within the first week after implant placement.

In the two-stage implant method, a permanent fixed prosthesis cannot be made for the patient for 3 to 5 months after the implant placement. This is mainly due to the fact that the implant has not yet fused with the jawbone. During this period, temporary removable prostheses (palate) are made especially for aesthetic reasons at the request of the patient. However, with advancing technology and methods, the production of temporary fixed prostheses during this waiting period has also begun to be implemented by some clinics.

Temporary removable prostheses (palate) applied during the waiting period have significant disadvantages that affect the success of implant treatment due to aesthetic concerns, and therefore are not preferred by dentists, and patients are requested to spend the waiting period without teeth. These disadvantages are significantly minimized in fixed temporary prostheses.


In which situations can it be applied?

It can be applied in cases where the implant can be compressed into the jawbone with a force of 35 newtons or more, with at least two implants in the posterior region and at least one implant in the anterior region. In some cases where grafting has been applied, it may not be applicable even if sufficient compression has been achieved. Whether a fixed temporary can be applied to the patient can be decided by the dentist during the implant surgery. In our clinic, fixed temporary teeth can be made in 60% of implant cases. It cannot be applied to those with bruxism.


Why are fixed temporary crowns necessary?

Fixed temporary crowns are necessary because there is a period of healing required after the implant surgery before the permanent crown can be placed. Fixed temporary crowns help protect the implant site and allow patients to eat, speak and smile normally during the healing process.


How long do fixed temporary crowns last?

Fixed temporary crowns can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depending on the individual case. The length of time the temporary crown lasts will depend on factors such as the patient's oral hygiene habits, the location of the tooth being treated, and the materials used to make the crown.

In general, it is important to follow the instructions provided by your dentist for caring for your temporary crown in order to help it last as long as possible. This may include avoiding hard or sticky foods, practicing good oral hygiene, and avoiding habits such as teeth grinding or biting your nails that could damage the temporary crown.

It is also important to keep in mind that the temporary crown is not meant to be a permanent solution and will eventually need to be replaced with a permanent crown or other type of restoration. Your dentist will provide you with specific instructions for when and how to replace your temporary crown.


How are fixed temporary crowns made?

Fixed temporary crowns are custom-made to fit each patient's unique implant placement and gum line. They are typically made from an acrylic or resin material and are designed to be easily removed by the dentist when it is time for the permanent crown to be placed. 

Fixed temporary crowns are typically made by taking an impression of the patient's prepared tooth. This impression is used to create a mold or digital scan of the tooth that will be used to create the temporary crown. The temporary crown is usually made from a tooth-colored resin material that is shaped to fit over the prepared tooth. The material is then hardened using a special light or chemical process. Once the temporary crown is ready, it is cemented onto the prepared tooth using a temporary cement. The entire process can usually be completed in one office visit.


How are fixed temporary crowns cared for?

Patients should care for their fixed temporary crowns just like they would their natural teeth. This includes brushing and flossing regularly and avoiding hard or sticky foods that could damage the crown.

Fixed temporary crowns require proper care and maintenance to ensure they last until the permanent crown is placed. Here are some tips for caring for your fixed temporary crown:

  1. Avoid eating hard or sticky foods that could damage or dislodge the crown.
  2. Brush your teeth gently twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging the temporary crown or causing gum irritation.
  3. Floss carefully around the crown and use an antiseptic mouthwash to help prevent infection and promote healing.
  4. Avoid chewing on the side of your mouth with the temporary crown to reduce the risk of dislodging it.
  5. If you experience any pain or discomfort, avoid using aspirin or ibuprofen as they can increase bleeding and prolong the healing process. Instead, use over-the-counter pain relief medication such as acetaminophen.
  6. Keep your regular dental checkups and cleanings to ensure the temporary crown and the surrounding gums are healthy.
  7. Avoid smoking or using tobacco products as they can slow down the healing process and increase the risk of infection.
  8. If the temporary crown becomes loose or comes off, contact your dentist immediately to avoid any further damage or discomfort.


Is there any pain or discomfort associated with getting a fixed temporary crown?

It's common to experience some minor discomfort or sensitivity after getting a fixed temporary crown. This can be due to the preparation of the tooth and the placement of the temporary crown. However, the discomfort is usually temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief medication like acetaminophen.

It's important to note that any discomfort should gradually subside within a few days. If the pain persists or becomes severe, it's recommended to contact your dentist for further evaluation. They can assess the situation and make any necessary adjustments or provide additional guidance.

During the healing process, it's important to follow your dentist's instructions for care and maintenance of the temporary crown. This includes avoiding hard or sticky foods that could potentially dislodge or damage the crown. Proper oral hygiene practices, such as gentle brushing and flossing, should also be maintained to keep the area clean and minimize the risk of discomfort or complications.

If you have any concerns or questions about the pain or discomfort associated with your fixed temporary crown, don't hesitate to reach out to your dentist. They will be able to address your specific situation and provide the appropriate guidance and support.


Can fixed temporary crowns be replaced if they become damaged?

Yes, if a fixed temporary crown becomes damaged or dislodged, it can typically be replaced by the dentist until the permanent crown is ready to be placed.




After the surgery, temporary implant impression components are placed in the patient's mouth to take the impression for the temporary prosthesis. This impression can be taken with traditional methods (using a silicone impression material) or with intraoral scanners. Based on this impression, custom-made implant abutments are produced to fit the patient's teeth and bone structure. In some cases, additional impressions may be taken over the implant abutments. Using advanced CadCam technology, a temporary PMMA prosthesis is produced for the patient. This prosthesis is placed in the patient's mouth and either cemented or screwed in place using temporary adhesive.



  • The patient goes through the healing process with teeth.
  • Much more comfortable than a removable prosthesis.
  • More aesthetically pleasing compared to a removable prosthesis.
  • The risk of bone loss around the implant due to unbalanced pressure on the neck of the implant by the removable prosthesis is much less in the fixed temporary prosthesis.
  • With the fixed temporary prosthesis, the gum does not close completely over the implant during the waiting period, and there is no need for a second surgical operation when the patient comes for the permanent prosthesis.
  • The fixed temporary prosthesis provides an important guide for both the patient and the dentist in terms of aesthetics and functionality for the permanent prosthesis to be made in the second stage.
  • Since the gum has completely healed and is in the necessary shape for the prosthesis with the temporary fixed prosthesis, there is no need for gum shaping in the second stage. The prosthesis stage is more comfortable for the patient, and the gum-prosthesis harmony and aesthetics are better.
  • The time for making the permanent fixed prosthesis in the second stage is reduced by a minimum of two sessions.



  • If the patient pays attention to the issues specified by the dentist after the treatment, temporary fixed prostheses do not have a significant handicap for the success of the implant. Oral and dental care is extremely important.
  • The patient must strictly follow the specified diet program. Otherwise, the implant may fail due to extra forces applied to the implants.
  • Temporary fixed prostheses should not be applied to patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) disorder.
  • Temporary fixed prosthesis is made of a more fragile material compared to the permanent prosthesis, and it can break more easily if subjected to extraordinary forces.
