Path of insertion for partial dentures

The path of insertion is critical for developing good aesthetics in partial dentures, particularly in the anterior regions when the artificial teeth sit next to natural teeth.

In addition, having a path of withdrawal differing from the path of displacement improves retention and stability when eating sticky food which could pull the denture out.

Another aesthetic benefit of having a well-planned path of insertion is that it may reduce the need to have ugly clasps on anterior teeth.
