    The distal extension base denture may be indicated in situations in which the edentulous area to be restored is without a terminal abutment tooth. There may be significant challenges in providing a prosthesis with sufficient support and retention to make it comfortable without damaging the intra-oral tissues. This can be a greater problem in the mandible as the denture-bearing area is usually much smaller than in the maxilla. This paper considers how distal extension removable prostheses can be designed to restore edentulous spaces.
