Traditional techniques for fabricating interim, immediately loaded implant-supported full-arch prostheses are complex and time-consuming. The present study presents an efficient technique for fabricating interim prostheses with prefabricated multipurpose rigid connecting bars. This technique can minimise the misfit attributed to the polymerisation shrinkage of resin and expansion of the working cast, and simultaneously facilitate impression taking and occlusal records in one visit, thus reducing laboratory and chair time. Due to its ease of use and clinical efficiency, the present technique is considered particularly beneficial for immediate loading rehabilitation.
