The goal of modern dentistry is to return patients to oral health in a predictable fashion. Partial and complete edentulous patients may be unable to recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, or speech with a traditional removable prosthesis. Full Mouth Rehabilitation implies the restoration of missing teeth or impaired occlusion, preservation, and maintenance of underlying structures. Modern dentistry has changed tremendously with implant therapy. For the successful implant therapy, making a proper treatment plan considering both surgical and prosthetic part in mind is the key to success.

In this manuscript we have discussed various prosthetic consideration of implant-supported prosthesis. A step-by-step detailed prosthetic option with their indications to help all dental implant practitioners in making of an optimal treatment plan for each case.
