Restoration of a partially edentulous patient with an implant-supported removable partial denture: A case report
Baek, Yeon-Wha / Lim, Young-Jun / Lee, Jong-Ho / Ryu, Hyo-Sook
The aim of this report is to present and discuss the clinical procedure of an implant-supported removable partial denture for a partially edentulous patient who exhibited a severely resorbed ridge and a collapsed vertical stop. The 67-year-old partially edentulous patient presented with a lack of vertical stop and an advanced transverse arch discrepancy. For the maxilla, an implant-supported removable partial denture was fabricated on bilateral distal implant abutments. The mandibular arch was restored with an implant-supported fixed partial denture, since it was expected to function more properly than a removable partial denture. This clinical report demonstrates a successful treatment approach to restore oral function and appearance for the patient.
