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: A 42-year-old male patient came with the chief complaint of difficulty in mastication and poor appearance due to several missing teeth. The patient has been partially edentulous since 2 years. Intraoral examination revealed Kennedy’s Class I mod 1 condition with missing 17, 16, 27, 26, 11, 21. Only 37 present in the mandibular arch (Figure 3a). It was decided to fabricate a partial denture for the maxillary arch and transitional denture for the mandibular arch as the patient was not willing for extraction.
