Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The abutment of an existing removable partial denture may require a crown restoration. Fabrication of a provisional restoration to fit the existing clasp assembly requires special consideration. This article presents a simple technique for fabrication of such provisional restorations. An alginate impression is made of the arch with the removable partial denture in place. The abutment tooth is then prepared, providing adequate clearance between the clasp assembly and the tooth preparation. Cold curing acrylic resin of proper shade is mixed and poured in the impression of the abutment tooth. The impression is then seated in the mouth and removed before the acrylic resin is completely polymerized. The provisional restoration is then separated from the partial denture, finished and polished.
