Mansoor Shariff, Mohammed M Al-Moaleem, Syed Sadatullah, Abdorahman Aseri


Treatment of multiple partial edentulous spaces is always a challenge for dentists. This article reports the manangement of a 45 yr old patient with multiple missing teeth with an inlay retained fixed partial denture combined with a full crown preparation opposing a cast partial denture. A conventional cast partial denture was fabricated for the maxillary arch and bilateral inlay retained fixed partial denture were considered for the mandibular arch. The prosthetic treatment with fixed partial denture and cast partial denture improved subjective perception of facial aesthetics, psychological status and social relations of the patient.
