I have a patient who I have treatment planned for a maxillary removable partial denture. He currently has teeth #7-11 [maxillary right lateral and central incisors and maxillary left central and lateral incisors and maxillary left canine; 12 - 23]. I would like to install an implant in #6 site [maxillary right canine; 13] and use it for an abutment for the maxillary removabe partial denture. I would also like to use #11 natural tooth on the contralateral side. Can I do this? Would you recommend a Locator attachment or PFM on #6 implant as the abutment?
Can both implants and teeth be used as abutments in a single partial?
