AbstractThe increased emphasis on physical appearance in contemporary society has increased the demand for esthetic dental restorations. Although the success of implant dentistry has expanded the scope of esthetic fixed prostheses, many patients demand a removable partial denture (RPD) for health, anatomic, psychological, or financial reasons. Fabricating an esthetically pleasing RPD while avoiding the unsightly display associated with conventional clasp assemblies often presents a challenge to dentists. This article examines using lingual clasps, proximal undercuts (also known as rotational path insertion), and acetal resin clasps as simple and effective means of improving RPD esthetics.
