Failing Four-Unit Maxillary Fixed Partial Denture: Part 2
Vailati, Francesca
In this two-part treatment planning series, the case of a 54-year-old woman with a failing four-unit fixed partial denture (FPD) is presented. Part 1 presented pretreatment strategies, occlusal and periodontal status, and the advantages and disadvantages of three treatment options: removable partial denture, tooth-supported FPD, and implant-supported FPD. In this follow-up article, the treatment selected for the case is revealed, and the rationale-including indications and contraindications for the different treatment options-is discussed. The treatment sequence is then outlined, and the final outcome is presented.
