In some multidisciplinary treatments of partially edentulous patients, orthodontic tooth movement and the help of implants is necessary. When implants are placed during orthodontic treatment, overall treatment time can be reduced substantially. Placement of a temporary crown on implants makes it easy to use it as an anchor site for orthodontic movements, allowing the stabilization of the occlusion, improving patient comfort and aesthetics, providing important information for the final prosthesis. This article describes the various stages of clinical and laboratory techniques, for building provisionals on implants, as well as recommendations regarding the intensity and timing for the beggining of orthodontic forces and occlusion settings. Therefore, it is essential that the orthodontist, surgeon and prosthodontist work together to reduce treatment times and obtain favorable results.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2013;43(3):200-205)
