This book provides an overview of removable partial denture service in contemporary dental practice, with an emphasis on clinical and design aspects. Clinical topics range from examination and treatment planning to mouth preparation and prosthesis placement. Common design philosophies are discussed, and a step-by-step method for partial denture design is presented. Also included are alternative removable partial denture therapies such as Swing-Lock, dual path, and attachment-type prostheses. To facilitate visualization and understanding, the text is accompanied by numerous illustrations, many of which have been reaccomplished for this edition. Like its predecessors, this edition is intended to help the student, the general practitioner, and the specialist provide consistent high-quality prosthodontic treatment for their patients.
