Abstract

Kennedy’s class I and class II situations are at times very challenging to rehabilitate especially when opposing a complete denture. The tooth and tissue are supported and hence the retention of the prosthesis may sometimes be compromised due to the nature of the residual tissues. Ideally implant supported prosthesis are considered to be the most favorable treatment option for these patients but their systemic health status may not be suitable for the same. A conventional cast partial denture with clasps can be given, but they are unaesthetic and hence not accepted by patients. An alternative to this is the extra-coronal attachment retained prosthesis. They are combined fixed and removable prosthesis that are an easier alternative as compared to implant supported prosthesis and more aesthetic compared to clasp retained cast partial dentures. This current case report involves rehabilitation of Kennedy’s class I situation opposing a complete denture using extra coronal attachments.
