Abstract

Successful prosthetic treatment depends on the functional and esthetic outcomes of the treatment and occlusal plane is a factor that can influence both these outcomes. Identifying and correcting occlusal plane alterations using Broadrick’s occlusal plane analyzer positively influences the treatment outcomes. Incorporating aesthetic acetal resin clasp in cast partial dentures is beneficial for patients seeking efficient, affordable and aesthetic treatment option. This article presents a case report where a simplified custom made Broadrick’s occlusal analyzer was used to identify the altered occlusal plane and aesthetic acetal resin clasp were given in the maxillary cast partial denture for improved aesthetics.

Keywords: Occlusal plane analysis, Fixed partial denture, Cast partial denture, Aesthetic clasp.
