Double hinged sectional denture

Double hinge sectional denture framework, open

This case required a small unilateral denture to replace the patient's upper right 5 and 6. It was decided to use a two-part or sectional technique to ensure positive retention. There are numerous types of two-part denture designs, but this one may be unique to Creative Chrome, having been devised by Steve to fully engage all of the available undercuts when locked together with a P.W bolt (figs 1 & 2).
