The challenge is to do the best work possible in the shortest time frame. The production process requires, nevertheless a certain amount of time in terms of work flow and waiting periods. Tobias Schwemmer demonstrates how to save precious time with the proper techniques and materials and how to create a harmonious, individual and functional immediate prosthesis at the same time.Immediate prostheses are part of daily laboratory work whether as a definite or as a longterm restoration after implantation. The same challenge presents itself in both cases: Teeth need to be extracted and due to aesthetic and functional reasons a proper restoration has to be integrated as fast as possible. The usual full prosthesis procedure with its extractions, individual impression trays, bite pattern plates, try-in(s) and finishing usually takes five appointments and means long waiting times for the patient.The popular practice to do the pre-bite taking, impression of the existing teeth , etching of the model in the laboratory and the simultaneous set-up and finishing work in two appointments can cause significant problems in the long run like bonding, aestheticly unsatisfactory results, and functional disadvantages. In other words, to achieve a qualitative, high end result one depends on luck more than on the actual work flow technique. The following patient case demonstrates that if a model cast is integrated for reinforcement and the teeth are individualized accordingly (both at additional cost to the patient), the prosthesis has to fullfil its requirements in terms of aesthetics, phonetics and function. The following case will demonstrate how to achieve the best result possible with one additional appointment which means three appointments in total. Furthermore, it explains how with the appropriate methods and materials the time period can be decreased drastically, which means that the additional try-in does not impact the overall work flow significantly and avoids time and costly intensive refinishing steps effectively.Keywords: set-up finishing individualized prosthesis teeth model cast
