This article describes the fabrication and modification of a wax replica of the patient's existing prosthesis, which is converted into a surgical guide. This approach permits accurate fixture placement relative to planned tooth positions in the implant-supported prosthesis, without the need to fabricate a new conventional denture prior to surger
