Dr. Vijaya Kumar R. MDS* and Dr. M. Viswambaran MDS
The development of a technique for fabrication of fixed dental prosthesis, involving little or no preparation of abutment teeth, has perhaps the one of single most advancement in prosthetic dentistry. Although not suitable for many cases where abutment teeth are badly broken, the resin bonded fixed dental prosthesis provides a successful means of tooth replacement that has short and long term benefits. The primary goal of resin bonded fixed dental prosthesis is replacement of maximum teeth and maximum conservation of tooth structure. The technique can be very rewarding and should be approached carefully.
