Esthetic removable partial denture design in replacing maxillary anterior teeth

Gen Dent. Nov-Dec 2010;58(6):e252-6.


Prosthodontic rehabilitation of missing maxillary anterior teeth requires special consideration to restore function and esthetics. This case report describes the prosthodontic management of a patient who lost three maxillary incisors due to a motor vehicle accident. A rotational path removable partial denture was constructed, for which a proximal undercut was created by means of a composite buildup to provide the retention for the prosthesis.
