Cobalt Chromium Removable Partial Denture

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
Its rigidity and strength allows for the construction of smaller and less bulky denture. When cast properly it has an optimum flexibility to allow its clasp to engage undercuts and obtain retention from teeth.

Disadvantages of Cobalt Chromium Partial Denture
It’s not esthetically pleasing especially for the anterior of the mouth.

  1. It is still the best option for removable prosthesis. Good strength and very stable.

  3. How safe is SPARTALLOY for partials? Also is cobalt , nickle,
    chromium alloy safe?
    Why is cobalt a hazardous material?
    Is TITANIUM a good partial materal?

  4. I have had my chromium cobalt partial denture for around 8 years now. This is an excellent choice especially when I was looking at £15,000 to have posts and teeth for reconstruction. Personally I like it, no one knows that I have a “denture” its so light and easy you forget it even there. You cannot put it into sterident etc you clean it with toothpaste the way you would your teeth. Me I highly recommend!
