Abstract

Acrylic partial denture is a preferred choice of treatment for partially edentulous individuals because of the low cost and ease of fabrication. But there are lots of disadvantages for it because of its semi porous nature, low strength, thickness of the denture base etc. It also results in altered taste sensation, hampered speech and reduced heat perception by the patient. Cast partial denture is a treatment modality which has been proved through ages for treating partially edentulous individuals, but still not practiced commonly mainly because of the economic viability and fabrication difficulty. In this case report the patient is provided with full acrylic denture, a flexible denture and a cast partial denture and the patient’s perception towards the treatment is assessed.
