Clinical application of mandibular removable partial denture using implant-supported surveyed crown: A case report

  • 1Department of Prosthodontics, School of Dentistry, Chonnam National University, Gwangju, Republic of Korea. psw320@jnu.ac.kr


When making conventional removable partial denture for the remaining teeth where the remaining teeth are only on one side, rotation of the denture occurs -in function- on the axis of the connected remaining teeth. If the edentulous portion is long, it becomes harder to obtain retention and stability for the abutment as the importance of the mucous membrane support is elevated. Such movements of denture decrease denture retention and stability, put excessive stress on the abutment, and give bad influence on periodontal health. Therefore, additional implant placement can be of a good choice in gaining additional retention and stability for partial denture. Thus hereby we report this clinical case as successful results were obtained by placing implants symmetrical to the remaining teeth and putting implant-supported surveyed crowns on the implants, allowing the partial denture to be designed to accept varying components and to have suitable path of insertion.
