ABSTRACT

Multiple missing teeth situation always claims careful attention and meticulous treatment planning. It becomes more challenging when unilateral or bilateral distal extension situation exists. Successful treatment can be done with some contemporary and conventional treatment planning. Implant-assisted prosthodontics has become contemporary choice of the replacement of the natural teeth, although conventional methods of fabrication of the removable partial denture continue to be an essential prosthetic consideration in many oral reconstructions, especially when implant therapy may not be used to replace missing natural teeth for some patients. Attachment retained partial denture has paved the way for such cases in prosthodontics. Attachment retained partial dentures last longer, wear less, need less adjustments, look better, work better, less destructive, protect abutment teeth, and are easier to clean. In this case report patient’s esthetic and functional requirements were fulfilled with attachment retained cast partial denture using semi-precision attachments.

Keywords: Cast partial, Distal extension, Implant therapy, Semi-precision attachment.
