The purpose of this study is to report a case of full-arch rehabilitation on six endosseous implants loaded following the standard procedure. An implant-prosthetic treatment was proposed to a 53-year-old woman with a total prosthesis in the upper jaw. Six implants on upper maxillary were placed keeping the upper complete denture during the osseointegration period. The implants were left submerged to allow the patient to wear removable prostheses and the prosthesis was rebase with Hydrocast to not compress the sites of healing during the osseointegration period. The impression of implants was made with silicones for addition (VPS) with different viscosities after 8 weeks. The final restoration was carried out taking into account the aesthetic and functional canons. Correct diagnosis and accurate implant planning are key for success in implant rehabilitation.
