Aim: The rotational movements of the distal extension denture base of partial removable dental prostheses mostly harm the prosthesis stability. This situation lead to discomfort during the function at Kennedy Class I. This case report case showed the use of distal implants with ‘locater attachments’ and anterior tooth semi-rigid connection to retain and support partial removable dental prosthesis.
Case: In this case report shows the fabrication of a maxilla Kennedy Class 1 removable partial denture supported by existing anterior teeth and 2 distal single implants with locator abutments, which prevented displacement of the distal extension of the partial denture.
Results: This case report shows us, distal implants with locater abutments have been showed to provide extra support and retention and prevent dislodgement of the patient’s distal extension removable partial denture. This demonstrates a successful treatment approach to restore oral function and appearance for the patient.
