This session explains the meanings of the terms; saddles, support and retention. It will also include an appraisal of how support is derived and an appraisal of retention of removable partial dentures (RPDs).

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • explain the meanings of the terms, saddles, support and retention
  • describe the principles of support and retention
  • appreciate the need to prescribe retainers appropriately

The term saddle is sufficiently self-descriptive to merit no further discussion, other than that an edentulous space does not need, necessarily, to be made into a saddle.
