AESTHETIC REHABILITATION USING IMMEDIATE MAXILLARY COMPLETE DENTURE AND LOWER FLEXIBLE RPD; A CASE REPORT
*Dr. C. Pradeep and Dr. Manesh Lahori
Immediate complete denture prosthesis fabricated before the removal of the teeth and placed immediately after the extractions of natural teeth. The immediate complete denture has several advantages over conventional complete denture as the natural facial appearance is maintained and the patient never appears edentulous. These immediate dentures allow patients to continue their social and business activities without being in an edentulous state. Removable partial prosthesis is a repulsive modality of treatment that we still mustrely upon for some cases and is a part of the practice. But these patients expect prosthesis to look as esthetic as any other contemporary modality of treatment. Missing tooth, replacement a must and it becomes best if a denture patient wearing is comfortable. Innovation of flexible dentures, flexibility combined with strength and light weight provides total comfort and great looks. Features of these prostheses are good retention, aesthetically superb and virtually invisible, excellent strength, easy in handling, no involvement of metal, noninvasive procedures, comfort. This clinical case report describes step by step fabrication of the immediate maxillary complete denture and lower flexible partial denture.
