The purpose

Dental services for large sectors of the population of the Western Cape (WC) Province of South Africa (SA) has been, and continues to be, limited to low-cost treatment options and emergency services, such as extractions at public health clinics. Replacement of missing teeth for the disadvantaged majority of the population is provided almost exclusively at the dental teaching institutions. Loss of teeth in the WC Province is, as elsewhere, the result of disease and the lack of restorative care and then having these replaced by a removable partial denture, if the patient can afford it Null Hypothesis: The daily functional needs and quality of life of partially dentate adult patients with a reduced posterior dental arch and /or a Shortened Dental Arch (SDA) will not be satisfied nor improved by replacing the posterior teeth with a removable prosthesis.

Provided treatments

  • Device: Removable partial denture (Chrome Cobalt Distal extension)
  • Other: A reduced posterior dental arch
