Abstract Provisional restoration and interim prosthesis have a significant role in reconstructive dentistry. Esthetics and function of the appliance or restoration are usually the key elements considered in the design and fabrication. While esthetics and function certainly need to be addressed, it is also essential to understand the impact of an interim prosthesis on early hard and soft tissue healing following bone grafting and alveolar ridge augmentation procedures.
