The first article in this series discussed the rotational path concept for replacing missing posterior teeth. In Part 2, the concept is applied to the replacement of missing anterior teeth using the anteroposterior (AP) rotational or dual path of placement. The anterior portion of the prosthesis is first placed along a straight path to gain access to tooth surfaces that provide the necessary undercuts after the partial denture is rotated into its final position. The most critical factors are the development of adequate cingulum rest seats to prevent migration of the abutment teeth and maintain intimate contact between the tooth and the rigid retentive components.
