Placing immediate complete dentures after extractions may present some challenges, and one of them could be related to altering the ideal CR position and vertical dimension of occlusion due to inadequate reline procedure. This type of prosthesis often need relining of the intaglio surface due to inadequate denture fabrication, inadequate fit, or to help the tissue heal with some tissue conditioner. Before performing the conversion of a removable prosthesis to interim fixed implant prosthesis, the dentures need to have an ideal CR position and vertical dimension of occlusion. This technique describes a method to restore an incorrect position of the interim prosthesis during the same conversion procedure. Following this technique, the prostheses will interdigitate following the ideal arrangement when they were fabricated.
