The prosthodontist is often limited in developing the desired occlusal pattern when integrating removable partial dentures with natural dentitions or fixed partial dentures. A technique that allows the development of an esthetic, accurate metal occlusal surface for a removable partial denture is described. The occlusion developed allows an occlusal harmony with the removable partial denture that is not possible with stock denture teeth or metal occlusal surfaces developed with stock denture teeth.
