Fabrication of an implant-supported fixed complete denture using multiple digital technologies for a patient with a perioral burn: A clinical report


      This clinical report describes the prosthetic and surgical management of a patient with a restricted oral orifice due to a perioral burn. Complete oral rehabilitation was achieved with maxillary and mandibular implant-supported fixed prostheses using a combination of digital and conventional impressions, design, and processing techniques.
