A pier abutment has been traditionally found as a common clinical occurrence. Theoretically, when it is intended to be managed with a fixed partial denture, a non rigid connector should be used. In practice, however, we see very less practitioners implementing such procedures. We present a unique case of oral rehabilitation in which a fixed, movable bridge was given against an opposing fixed fixed bridge that had already shown signs of deterioration. The effects of giving a fixed fixed designed bridge in such cases are evident and discussed.
Key words: connector, pontic, precision attachment, key – key way.
