The Windowed Removable Partial Denture: A Treatment Option for Patients with Lone-Standing Teeth
Ahmad A. Jum’ah, Terence Haite, Brian Nattress

Abstract:
The decision as to whether to retain or extract a single remaining natural tooth prior to the provision of dentures can be a difficult one. If the tooth is left in situ, the development of an adequate peripheral seal around the denture is not possible thereby compromising the appliance’ retention. If the tooth is extracted the possibility of gaining direct retention with the use of clasps or attachments is lost. This paper aims to illustrate the use of windowed removable partial denture design and review the literature relevant to this area. The use of such a design can enhance the retention of the appliance by encircling the lone standing tooth/teeth utilising an elastomeric permanent soft lining material.
