Abstract


The only reliable method of preserving the remaining bone structure is by maintaining the functional health of the teeth. The dentist’s role can range from simple treatment to full-mouth rehabilitation and partially edentulous patients have many treatment options ranging from FPD, RPD to dental implants. Furthermore, the use of copings and precision attachments on the remaining teeth enhances the retention of the denture. Studies have also demonstrated that precision-attachment partials dentures last longer, wear less, needless adjustments, look better, work better, less destructive, protect abutment teeth, and are easier to clean. Magnets increase retention of partial or complete dentures and overdentures regardless of the path of insertion. Magnets are easy to use alone or together with any type of retainer. This clinical report describes a novel method of fabricating a tooth-supported Removable Partial Denture in lower arch retained with magnetic attachment, to enhance retention and stability of the prosthesis and overcome the drawback of extracoronal attachment which could affect the aesthetics
