Fixed Prosthodontics

  • To minimize flexing caused by long and/or thin spans in pontic designs, a rigid connector should be selected.
  • The secondary retention (R) should extend from the primary interabutment axis.
  • The forces on castings serving as retainers for fixed partial dentures differ from those applied to single restorations in that they are more complex and involve more than one tooth.
  • Dislodging forces on a fixed partial denture retainer tend to act in a lateral direction.
  • The retainers on secondary abutments will be placed in tension when the pontics flex, especially on distal abutments.
  • A common problem in replacing all four maxillary incisors with a fixed partial denture is the lack of adequate support.
  • A secondary abutment must meet the criterion of being able to withstand forces without becoming a problem itself.
  • The preferred way of fabricating most fixed partial dentures is through casting.
  • It would be unwise to use a lateral incisor as a secondary abutment in situations where the tooth is not strong enough to withstand the forces.
  • To offset the torque produced when pontics lie outside the interabutment axis line, the retainer should be designed to resist the torque.

Shillingburg, Jr. The book is authored by prominent figures in the field, including David Ross Boyd Professor Emeritus, Dr. Herbert T. Shillingburg, Jr.
