Prefabricated custom impression trays for the altered cast technique.


Removable partial prosthodontic treatment requires multiple patient appointments with intermediate laboratory steps. A technique is described that allows the removable partial denture framework try-in and the impression for the altered cast to be efficiently completed in a single appointment. The method uses prefabricated custom impression trays that are readily attached to the framework after the try-in.
