Anand Verma, S Joshi, P Joshi


Several difficulties are encountered in providing a successful, single complete denture treatment opposing the natural dentition. This case report deals with the oral rehabilitation of completely edentulous maxillary arch opposing a natural dentition prosthetically by incorporating metal denture base in place of a conventional poly methyl methacrylate denture base material. Metal bases are used to enhance the physical properties of complete dentures and to combat the masticatory forces from natural dentition thus improving the longevity of the prosthetic replacement.
