Abstract

Background: Distal extension edentulism can affect the patients ability to function as a dentate person. A well-made removable partial denture that has appropriate extensions, borders and ridge-to-dentition relationship will benefit the partially edentulous patient by providing increased comfort and improved dental function. This article described a patient who had a bilateral distal extension removable partial denture in both upper and lower arch. The prosthesis showed a successful rehabilitation with proper function and aesthetics.

Methods: A Kennedy class I bilateral free end saddle edentulous arch in both upper and lower arch was rehabilitated with removable cast partial denture. The case had the reasonable amount of crown: root ratio for the remaining abutment teeth for placement of metal framework, occlusal rest and cast clasp.

Results: The delivered denture showed proper sitting of occlusal rest and cast clasp. Retention and stability was acceptable. Occlusion had achieved its desired occlusion scheme.

Conclusion: Removable cast partial denture is a suitable option for the rehabilitation of partially edentulous case if the case has such amount of abutment teeth remaining with healthy periodontal condition.
