E. E. Garcia, J. G. Evans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The altered-cast technique, also known as the corrected-cast technique, for distal extension removable partial dentures (RPD), is not routinely utilized by dentists. Although the technique requires an additional step for both the dentist and dental technician, it offers several advantages--maximum stability, minimal stress on abutment teeth, and more predictable occlusion. The following article describes the altered-cast technique, as well as some advantages and disadvantages of the technique. A quick and easy procedure for constructing an altered-cast is also presented.
