The complete dental rehabilitation of a patient with a failing dentition using fixed implant-supported prostheses requires carefully planned and well-sequenced treatment. This case report presents the treatment steps and sequencing for a patient in whom removable provisional prostheses were not an option. While an immediate loading protocol was used in the mandible, a staged approach featuring strategic extractions and implant placement in several phases was applied in the maxilla. The major advantage of this treatment protocol was that the patient was maintained in fixed prostheses throughout the treatment.
