Cobalt Chromium Removable Partial Denture can be tooth supported or tooth and tissue supported prosthesis. It incorporates both strength and rigidity to resist deformation from highly complex stress fields during normal masticatory movements.
Removable partial denture treatment has six phases:
- Education of patient.
- Diagnosis, treatment planning, design, treatment sequencing and mouth preparation.
- Support for distal extension denture bases.
- Establishment and verification of occlusal relations and tooth arrangements.
- Initial placement procedures.
- Periodic recall.
Indications for Cobalt Chromium Removable Partial Denture
It is indicated for patients with good hygiene and high motivation to accept dental prosthesis. There must be a distribution of abutment teeth which have good bone support.
Advantages of Removable Cobalt Chromium Partial Denture
