Adequate visualization of existing/proposed tooth position, denture base contours, and prosthetic space is critical to treatment planning of dental implants. Multiple techniques exist for fabricating radiographic guides; many involve duplicating the patient’s existing prosthesis or fabricating a new diagnostic template. This article describes a technique that provides anatomic and restorative information by using an existing prosthesis and a radiographic impression method without the need to fabricate a duplicate or new template.
