REINFORCING MAXILLARY SINGLE COMPLETE DENTURE WITH METAL DENTURE BASE- AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DEAL WITH DENTURE FRACTURE
Dr. Anuj Gambhir, Dr. Dhaniram Talukder*, Dr. Geeta Paul and Dr. Pankaj Datta
The main objective of any prosthetic treatment should be based on De Van’s statement that “Perpetual Preservation
Of That What Remains Rather Than Meticulous Replacement Of What Has Been Lost.” This is especially true in
terms of completely edentulous jaw opposing natural dentition. Several difficulties are encountered in providing a
successful single complete denture treatment, the most common being repeated fracture of the prosthesis. An ideal
solution to strengthen the single complete denture bases is to provide metal reinforcement by fabrication of metal
based single complete denture. This case report describes the clinical management and step by step fabrication of
single complete denture with metal denture base and partially edentulous mandibular jaw.
Keywords: Single Complete Denture, Metal Denture Base.
