Prosthodontic treatment for the Applegate-Kennedy class V partially edentulous patient

Concomitant loss of a canine and adjacent teeth usually occurs in the maxilla as a result of trauma in youngsters with well-preserved dentition or as an outcome of surgical excision of a localized pathosis in that area. It is postulated that in Applegate-Kennedy class V partially edentulous situations, the remaining anterior teeth in the maxilla should not be used as abutments for removable partial dentures. The stability of the prosthesis is maintained by counterresisting the occlusal forces exerted on the restored arch-curve by use of a posteriorly directed path of placement for the prosthesis.
