ABSTRACT
The present prime concern in dentistry is on preservation of remaining natural teeth. Presence of few teeth in oral cavity help in preserving alveolar ridge integrity, maintain the proprioception, and gives psychological benefit to the patient. Transitional denture provides us with alternative treatment plan for the patients willing to replace their missing teeth while retaining their very few remaining teeth. A relatively newer type of transitional denture is Cu-sil denture. A Cu-sil denture is a denture with holes, lined by a gasket of silicone rubber, the holes thus providing space for remaining natural teeth to emerge into the oral cavity through the denture. Cu-sil denture is the simplest removable partial denture, but its fabrication requires special armamentarium and material. This case report represents a simple chairside technique to fabricate Cu-sil dentures in usual dental set-up.

Mentions: Maxillary and mandibular arch impressions were made using dual impression technique and poured with dental stone (Figure 1a). Temporary denture bases were fabricated using auto-polymerizing acrylic resins. Then, occlusal rims were prepared and bite registration was done. The setup was mounted on an articulator. Teeth arrangement and try-in procedures were executed in routine manner. The wax up of the maxillary denture was done similar to a complete denture except for the holes corresponding to the remaining natural teeth. The dentures were cured with heat-cure acrylic resin. After the denture was finished and polished, the space in maxillary partial denture around the remaining teeth was widened to give clearance of 4-5 mm around the teeth (Figure 2a).4 Silicon adhesive was applied to denture and mixing of silicone soft liner base and catalyst was done and placed into oral cavity to occupy space between denture and natural teeth. Denture was inserted in patient’s mouth and held in position. After setting of the material, denture was removed. The excess liner material was trimmed and denture was finally inserted in patient’s mouth (Figure 2b). Occlusion was checked and post-insertion instructions were given as same as for any removable prosthesis.

Presence of few teeth in oral cavity help in preserving alveolar ridge integrity, maintain the proprioception, and gives psychological benefit to the patient.
