Share Abstract:

Designing clasps for the asymmetric distal extension removable partial denture


Pages: 374-378
PMID: 8957876

Functional movement of the combined tooth-mucosa-borne prosthesis about the axis of rotation necessitates consideration of retentive element design modifications, particularly as they relate to bilateral asymmetric distal extension situations.
