Abstract

Extra coronal cast direct retainers are an essential component of cast removable partial denture prosthesis. The conventional cast circumferential clasp or the bar clasp appear unaesthetic due to visible metal display when used in the smile zone. This article describes two hidden clasp designs as an alternative to the conventional extra coronal cast direct retainer assembly for the distal extension partially edentulous situation. The same is highlighted via two case reports.
