The awareness and demand for quality of dental treatment is relatively increasing in recent generation and more so, as far as aesthetics are concerned, along with other functions of the prosthesis. In treating partially edentulous mouth, it requires more attention, principally for esthetics, in design. While achieving the goal, the components which are incorporated in removable partial denture may result in unsightly appearance.

Extracoronal resilient attachment was planned to re-claim support and thereby regainment of lost esthetics.
Conclusion: Retention achieved with lost esthetics. Clinical Significance: Use of precision attachment has amplified the aspects of retention and particularly, esthetics when compared to conventional removable partial dentures.
