AbstractThis case report presents a patient who had a limited oral opening due to systematic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and describes how oral rehabilitation was achieved with a removable partial denture. Various techniques for the delivery of oral health care have been reported for patients who have limited mouth openings as a result of SLE and scleroderma. After a review of the literature, a new approach was required for this patient with SLE who had a very limited mouth opening. The retention for the removable partial denture (RPD) used the undercut in the abutment teeth and a magnet-retained sectional RPD. A set of tweezers was modified to help with the insertion and removal of the sectional RPD by the patient. This paper reports a new clinical and laboratory technique of fabricating a sectional RPD using magnets and customized tweezers for this patient.
