107 MCQs in Prosthodontics

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

All of the following are principal objections to the use of a U-shaped maxillary removable partial denture major connector, except

  1. its lack of rigidity, compared to other designs, may induce torque or direct lateral force to abutment teeth
  2. the design fails to provide good support characteristics and may permit impingement of tissues underlying its palatal borders when subjected to occlusal loading
  3. bulk to enhance rigidity results in increased thickness in areas most frequented by the tongue
  4. movement is particularly noticeable and is traumatic to the residual ridge in distal extension removable partial dentures when posterior tooth support is nonexistent
  5. the lack of interfacial surface tension between the metal and tissues reduces the amount of retention of the prosthesis
