Partial denture

R.Sathyanarayanan

This patient reported with missing 35, 36 and 37 and 46 and 47. Periodontal condition of 34 and 38 was satisfactory, but was not sufficient enough for fixed partial denture. Since both sides had edentulous space, it was decided to go for a cast partial denture with ball attachment on right side and bar attachment on left side. These images show tooth preparation after root canal therapy of abutment teeth.

Ceramic crown on 34 and 38 with bar attachment and ceramic crown in 44 and 45 with ball attachment were given.
