good health, positive attitude, cooperative

extra oral
removable prosthodontics involve as many intra oral procedures as well as
study models, radiographs, photos, visual aids and treatment plan
during a consultation appointment what items are set
easy to clean, patient is never w/o teeth, repaired and adjusted easily
the advantages of the removable partial denture include
the skeleton of the removable partial that the remaining units are attached
the part of a partial denture that contacts a tooth to provide vertical and horizontal support
as close as possible
to provide the best support possible, the rests are placed to the center of the tooth
what is the part of a partial denture that joins the parts of the partial into one unit
lingual bar
for a mandibular partial, the connector is a
palatal bar
for a maxillary partial, the connector is a
stress breaker/ hinge
what devise relieves the pressure on the abutment teeth
minor connector
what part of the partial denture protects against food impaction by filling the tooth/tissue junctions
what part of the partial contacts the abutment teeth and prevents the partial from moving
another name for a clasp
bar type clasp
this clasp extends from a gingival direction toward the occlusal
denture base/ saddle
the denture teeth are held in place by
porcelain and acrylic
artificial teeth on a partial denture are made of
the mold is the same thing as the
exam, consultation, preliminary impression, final impression, try in and adjustment, delivery, adjustment
order for partial denture appointments
dental acrylic

jaw relationships are determined by
evaluating the relationship between the maxillary and mandibular
dental laboratory
the final processing stage of the full denture is in
with dentures in place, the patient will notice a_______ in the thermal changes to the tissues under the denture
denture adhesives are not necessary with a well fitting denture
indicator paste
used to indicate pressure spots on the internal of the full denture
acrylic burrs, stones and discs
pressure areas are adjusted on the cusp of the tooth with
tissue shrinkage
when are relines necessary
laboratory relines
which reline will last longer in a denture
directly in the mouth
in a chair side reline the material is cured
denture tray
in a dental laboratory reline what type of tray is used
tissue conditioning
the process of placing a soft material inside the denture to allow irritated tissues to heal
dental lathe with rag wheel, pumice slurry (water & pumice) tripole or a paste of tin oxide and water
what is used to polish dentures
