FERNANDEZ, Enrique; ACOSTA, Hernán; MADRID, Ignacio  y  VERDUGO, Luis. Rehabilitation of maxillary Kennedy class I & II treated with removable dentures. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.2, pp.96-100. ISSN 0719-0107.

The emergence of osseointegrated implants and their further validation, at the beginning of the 80’s, contributed undoubtedly to oral rehabilitation as a very useful resource. Unfortunately, mainly because of the economic costs involved and despite an encouraging initial augury, they have not become in a specific therapeutic alternative for the vast majority of edentulous patients. Partial edentulism of maxillae, Kennedy’s class I, & II, with all or a few teeth remaining at the sextant 2, mostly class III PDI, substantially compromised denture-supporting anatomy, generate a prosthetic challenge to overcome regarding retention and aesthetic satisfaction of these patients. In this report, we display two of them, which we believe have been successfully managed in order to fulfill both variables, by means of “conventional” removable metallic prostheses combining MGR’s clasps and frictional retentive facets.

Palabras clave : Removable prostheses; Kennedy classes; Prosthodontic diagnostic index; MGR clasp assembly.
