Satisfactory restoration can be challenging in a patient with a partially edentulous situation especially when unilateral or bilateral posterior segment of teeth is missing. Successful restoration could be done with conventional and contemporary treatment options. Attachment retained cast partial dentures is one such treatment modality. Another treatment modality in such situations is implant supported prosthesis. Extracoronal precision attachment is preferred treatment option where implant therapy does not permit favorable outcome. This paper describes report of two cases in which rehabilitation of distal extension was done with precision attachments followed by cast partial denture.
