Abstract

In partial edentulous patients, implant-assisted removable partial denture which provide additional retention and support by placing a small number of implants in strategic positions might be suitable treatment. This case of patient with loss of maxillary posterior teeth and moderate to severe wear of residual dentition, three implants were placed in the maxillary anterior edentulous area and then surveyed bridges were made including remaining anterior natural teeth. Posterior edentulous area was restored with distal extension removable partial denture (RPD). In addition, the worn mandibular natural teeth were restored with fixed prostheses. As a result, reduced vertical dimension and collapsed occlusal plane were rehabilitated, and improved functionally and aesthetically. The purpose of this case was to report the results of three-year follow-up of full mouth rehabilitation with anterior implant surveyed bridges and distal extension RPD.
