Axially placed or tilted implants can be used to rehabilitate a completely edentulous arch and immediate loading of such implants is now recommended. Hence the need to make an impression and to provide a provisional prosthesis within a short span of time arises. A working cast would be necessary to execute these procedures.  This article describes a quick method to generate a working cast or a master model using a simple technique for beading and boxing full arch implant impressions.
