Use of natural teeth in an interim partial denture.

Martin Brochu, Joseph P. Connor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A clinical case is presented in which the patient's natural teeth were used in an interim partial denture. The patient accepted this treatment despite his reluctance to have the periodontally hopeless anterior teeth extracted. This technique may be used when the patient is emotionally unprepared for tooth loss, when the teeth to be replaced are highly characterized, or when no suitable denture tooth is available.
