Pros IV – Final Review Session

  1. What major connectors are usually indicated for the different Kennedy Classifications of RPDs?

  2. How much room is necessary in the Li vestibule of the Mn arch for a Li bar major connector?

  3. How does the angle of convergence relate to the position of the retentive arm of a clasp?

  4. Can PFM crowns be used as surveyed crowns? If so are there modifications necessary to the normal design?

  5. How does a crown preparation for a surveyed crown differ from a conventional crown preparation?

  6. What are the indications for crowning an abutment tooth for an RPD?

  7. Know the definitions of the following casts:

    1. Diagnostic cast

    2. Master cast

    3. Altered cast

    4. Refractory cast

    5. Remount cast

  8. What metals are usually found in RPD alloys?

  9. What are the basic characteristics of these alloys?

  10. What is the altered cast technique and when is it indicated?

  11. What are the objectives of an altered cast impression?

  12. How do interim RPDs and conventional cast RPDs differ in terms of composition, support, fabrication technique, indications and retention?

  13. Know the following prosthetic tooth replacements:

    1. Metal tooth

    2. Tube tooth

    3. Reinforced Acrylic/composite pontic

    4. Facing

  14. How much vertical and horizontal space is necessary for different prosthetic tooth replacements?

  15. When is it necessary (or not necessary) to make occlusion rims for jaw relations during RPD fabrication?

  16. When is it appropriate to make an occlusal record of maximum intercuspation and when is it appropriate to make a record of centric relation in the fabrication of an RPD?

  17. During RPD fabrication, is it always necessary to have the patient come in for a jaw relationship record appointment, or a wax try-in appointment? Why?

  18. What are the basic objectives of the wax try-in appointment?

  19. What is the appropriate order of clinical procedures during the delivery of an RPD?

  20. What are the basic home care instructions for a patient with a new RPD?

  21. How is the occlusion adjusted on a Class I RPD?

  22. Is it done differently for a Class III RPD? Why?

  23. What materials may be used to help fit a new RPD framework?

  24. What is the typical sequence of clinical appointments in RPD fabrication?

  25. What are typical mouth preparations (enameloplasty) necessary prior to making a framework impression for an RPD?

  26. What materials are usually used for making a framework/final impression?

  27. What materials are used for pouring an RPD framework/final impression?

  28. What are the indications for a RPD reline? How often are they necessary?

  29. What are the indications for making a new RPD>?

  30. What are the differences in different types of repairs?

  31. Know clasp assembly components
