It is a challenge to satisfactorily restore partial edentulous patients, especially when unilateral or bilateral posterior teeth are missing. Partially one of the treatment modality to achieve full mouth rehabilitation of partial edentulousness using extended precision attachment in removal partial denture. Although RPD is well designed but not used by the patient might be due to not preferred appearance and retentive quality. This paper describes a case report of a patient with maxillary bilateral distal extension span restored with custom-made extended precision attachment. With the use of custom made extra coronal precision attachment eliminate metal display and improve retention.

An implant supported crown or a conventional fpd is the most common treatment for the replacement of maxillary anterior teeth. The maxillary anterior region claims both esthetic and functional rehabilitation. The important factors involved in the replacement are - bone in the edentulous area, occlusal function, systemic conditions, socioeconomic status and willingness of the patients.The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of tme duration for esthetic zone replacement after extraction. The study was conducted as a retrospective university-based study. Data of patients who underwent fpd treatment in maxillary anterior region was collected and analysed using SPSS software and the results were obtained. Chi square test was used to find the association between groups.The frequency rate of replacement of maxillary anterior was highest in the age group between 26 - 45 years (63.4 %). The frequency of replacement was higher in males (59.7 %) than in females. Most of the replacements were done at 2 months time interval. However, no statistically significant association was found between the groups.
