Abstract

As implant can be covered by National Health Insurance Service (NHIS), it was increased the interest in the removable partial denture (RPD) with the surveyed fixed prosthesis supported by implant fixture. To achieve predictable result, it needs the prudent implant planning by basic principles of RPD and patient's residual ridge. This 67 years old age male had a few unilateral remaining teeth, and hoped the treatment covered by NHIS. As using CAD software, the position of implant is planned with regarding to occlusal table of provisional denture, basic principles of RPD, and resorbed residual ridge. The definitive prostheses can ensure the stability and retention of removable prosthesis. When planning implant fixed prostheses, the digital technique was utilized to consider basic principle of RPD and resorbed residual ridge. As a result, it provided satisfactory prostheses.
