Abstract: © 2014 Editorial Council for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry. Silicone prostheses require constant repair and refabrication. Auricular prostheses retained with implants have better retention than adhesive-retained prostheses. However, refabrication is complicated if the patient is unwilling to surrender the metallic framework attached to the implants and revert to the use of adhesives. This article describes a technique by which the metal framework of the existing prosthesis need not be removed, thereby improving the patient's quality of life until the new prosthesis is delivered.
