Precision Attached Dentures - a case study

This patient had 11 teeth, but did not want to have an implant procedure, so we advised a mixed solution of partially fixed bridges on the front and a precision attachment denture, which is supported by the bridge. This picture shows the impression, which was taken of the filed teeth.

It is apparent that these teeth are ground down with step preparation, which means that on the outer surface there is a line under the gum line, which is looking like a step. On the inner surface, the line is above the gum line. The prepared teeth need to have the same angle to receive a bridge.

This shows the upper mould, where you can see, that there is no palate side required because the denture is mostly supported by the fixed part.

This is the relationship of the two jaws and the new teeth.
