Indications for Removable partial denture ( RPD )

1. lengthy edentulous span (too long for a fixed prosthesis)
2. no posterior abutment for a fixed prosthesis
3. excessive alveolar bone loss (esthetic problem)
4. poor prognosis for complete dentures due to residual ridge morphology
5. reduced periodontal support of remaining teeth (won’t support a fixed prosthesis)
6. cross-arch stabilization of teeth
7. need for immediate replacement of extracted teeth
8. cost/patient desire considerations
