Study Notes

Resin Bonded Fixed Partial Denture (FPD)

  • Definition: An extracoronal cast restoration consisting of one or more pontics supported by thin metal retainers (wings) bonded lingually and proximally to the enamel of the abutment teeth.

Indications for Resin Bonded FPD

  • Replacement of one or two missing mandibular incisors.
  • Single tooth replacement in cases of intact, sound, caries-free, well-developed teeth.
  • Replacement of maxillary incisors in cases of normal bite, moderate overbite, or open bite.
  • Single posterior tooth replacement in young age with conservative intra-enamel preparation.
  • Abutments with sufficient enamel (at least 50%) to provide retention.

Additional Indications

  • Adequate clinical crowns to provide resistance and retention.
  • Stabilization following orthodontic treatment.
  • Short span bridges.
  • Normal occlusion.
  • Splinting of periodontally involved teeth.

Contraindications for Resin Bonded FPD

  • Ni allergy.
  • Long edentulous span.
  • Poor enamel quality.
