The most common reason that is quoted for production and provision of a removable partial denture is to replace missing teeth in an economical way (Stefanac N., 2006).

Most practitioners will choose a removable partial denture if there is a need to restore lost residual ridge, achieve desirable aesthetics, improve masticatory function and phonetics and if implants or bridges are not able to be provided for financial reasons or patient preferences.


The dentist and the patient were happy with the final aesthetic and functional outcome of this case.

Should any additional modifications be required on either chrome over time, this will be done with minimal inconvenience for the patient. To read the full case study, download from the link above.

Southern Cross Dental would like to thank Dr Tiffany Dowling, Queensland for the submission of this case.
