Surgical guides (SGs) have been commonly used in full-mouth rehabilitation and numerous advances have been adopted in their development. However, they have been restricted to implant placement and are later rendered useless. They further add to the burden of biological waste management following their limited use. The quantum of technologies and materials used to make us ponder if they can be used further. This article establishes different ways of using SG in different stages of prosthetic phase of treatment by demonstrating the procedures clinically. It gives us an insight into how the guides can be used for implant localization and exposure during the secondary surgical phase and also during impression making, thereby enhancing the treatment outcome.
