Designing a unilateral distal extension removabie partial denture (RPD) is often challenging for a clinician. Often, the use of conventional RPD design techniques results in a prosthesis that both the dentist and patient consider a failure. The two main difficulties encountered are (i) to obtain suitable retention on the dentulous side of arch (ii)stability of the denture to horizontal and vertical displacement. This artide reviews the designing options for unilateral distal extension cases taking into consideration various forces acting on the denture and the means to control the same.
