COMBINE PROSTHESIS WITH PRECISION ATTACHMENT FOR DISTAL EXTENSION KENNEDY CLASS II ARCH- A CASE REPORT
Keywords:Fixed Partial Denture, Flexible Denture, Precision Attachment, Cast Partial Denture.
Background: A prosthodontic rehabilitation's success depends critically on striking a balance between new and traditional treatment modalities.
These prosthodontic treatment options include partial dentures with attachments. The majority of conventional RPD are adequately designed, but they are rarely utilised by patients because they don't like how they look or how well they retain information. This article describes a modified extended precision attachment for removing metal display to improve the aesthetics and preservation of a long-span partial edentulous arch restored using prosthodontic rehabilitation.
A 68-year-old male patient was referred to the prosthodontics department for the purpose of replacing lost teeth. Kennedy's class I mode 1 in the mandibular arch with a worn out dentition were identified during clinical testing. Maxillary and mandibular arches were precisely planned for fixed and removable partial denture.
The underlying residual alveolar ridge and the retentive components are both necessary for the RPD to be successful. In this case study, the use of precision attachments results in a more aesthetically pleasing end and enhanced retention on the mandibular partial dentures.
Clinical significance: By applying precision attachment, the treatment plan adequately described restores the appearance, masticatory function, and enhances the prosthesis' retention.
