[Application of sublingual bar to removable partial denture of a patient complaining of major discomfort to lingual plate]
[Article in Japanese] Yaka T. Division of Prosthodontics, Department of Restorative and Biomaterials Sciences, Meikai University School of Dentistry. email@example.com PATIENT: A 62-year-old man complained of discomfort during insertion of lower removable partial denture (RPD). Existing denture was highly objectionable to tongue and intolerable to wear due to volume and contour of its lingual aspect. The treatment plan included fabrication of an interim denture and altering its shape until it did not lead to discomfort, followed by fabrication of a final denture. Consequently, RPD using sublingual bar was found to be the most comfortable to wear and was fabricated as final denture. The patient was ready to insert the final denture and restoration of masticatory function was accomplished. DISCUSSION: In cases with unfavorable anatomic conditions such as a lack of mouth-floor depth, lingual plate should be applied as first choice, and when it is not well tolerated by the patient, sublingual bar should be applied. CONCLUSION: Sublingual bar is suggested to be one of the least objectionable major connectors. Publication Types:

[Removable partial denture design and its effect on remaining teeth, based on Hungarian national survey]
[Article in Hungarian]
Fejérdy P, Borbély J, Schmidt J, Jánh M, Hermann P. Semmelweis Egyetem, Fogorvostudományi Kar Fogpótlástani Klinika, Budapest. Removable partial dentures (RPD) are used to restore Class 2A, 2B, 2A/1, and Class 3 type partially edentulous arches. Calibrated dentists of the Department of Prosthodontics performed oral health survey first in 1985-1989 and a second survey in 2003-2004. The oral surveys were carried out at the lung cancer screening stations, after obtaining formal consent of those individuals who were originally referred to perform x-ray lung screening examination. Subjects were interviewed and clinically examined under artificial lighting conditions. In the "second" survey data collected on 765 RPDs were analysed. Examined aspects of RPD design were: the protection of the marginal periodontium, extension of major connectors, base plate materials, tooth and tissue support. The level of restoration related damage on the remaining teeth was estimated according to whether remaining teeth were used for retention or for support; had any other type of denture-contact or remaining teeth were free from contact with denture. Approximately 50% of dentures showed dento-mucosal or muco-dental support; metal base was present in 45-48% of dentures; 47% of major connectors were designed with reduced extension; freedom of gingival margin was assured in 4345% of the dentures. 26.10% of reference teeth; 19.11% of the remaining teeth used for support; 31.53% of the teeth used for retention; 28.07% of the teeth free from contact with denture and 38.00% of those remaining teeth with any other type of denture contact showed a sign of damage. Findings of the authors' survey show a considerable improvement in all aspects of RPD design--but still further progression is required. Those principles of RPD design taught in dental schools can only gradually influence the routine daily dental practice. Assessment of remaining teeth damages confirm the standards we outlined for RPD design with the main priorities of dental support and the protection of the gingival margin. Publication Types:

Removable prostheses revisited: challenges for primary dental care. 2. Partial dentures.
Preston AJ. Department of Restorative Dentistry, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and School of Dental Studies, Leverpool, UK. email@example.com This is the second in a series of three papers. Its topic, the provision of removable prostheses, remains a significant aspect of primary dental care. In the recent past and in the near future, there have been and will be significant influences on how removable prostheses are provided for patients in the United Kingdom (UK). In this paper, the trends in partial edentulousness in the UK will be summarised and the important changes that are likely to influence removable partial denture provision will be outlined. The paper will then provide an update of clinical procedures in the provision of removable partial dentures. A third paper will consider overdentures.

In other cases. surgical and financial considerations lead to the use of a removable partial denture (RPD) as the chosen prosthetic restoration even in the "dental implant era". tooth-tissue supported RPD are used. When posterior teeth are missing or when the edentulous area is vast. In these cases one should gain initial support from the teeth and an additional support from the soft tissues. followed by stability and only then. . a tissue-tooth supported RPD is considered. an indirect retainer should be incorporated into the framework in order to prevent upward rotational movement of the denture. A systematic track starting with a preliminary design. a 5 mm distance between two adjacent minor connectors should be allowed in order to prevent food from being trapped in that space. start designing with analysis of support. When a distal extension RPD is considered. If the prognosis of the potential supporting teeth is poor. Patients' attitudes. that part acts also as a supporting element in Kennedy class I and class II cases. Tooth supported RPD are the most convenient ones and have a very good long-term prognosis. Stability is achieved primarily by metal contacts between teeth and the metal framework of the RPD.Jerusalem. so the RPD will be a long-term solution that will not harm the remaining oral tissues. After designing support. a minimal type of a major connector should be chosen. In any case. and stress relieving clasp-assemblies such as the RPI/RPA should be considered. True reciprocation can only be achieved if the reciprocating element touches the tooth before the retentive clasp. As for minor connectors. A systematic approach starts with a correct diagnosis of the remaining hard and soft tissues. If needed. Such a systematic approach will ensure a long-term solution and a happy patient. A systematic approach starts with diagnosis of the remaining tissues and with finding the correct prosthetic solution with the patient. these should only be added if other parts--such as guiding planes--couldn't be used for the purpose of connecting functional elements to the major connector. other parts should be considered. medical. There is an unlimited RPD design options. any embracing part of the clasp assembly and a correct denture base can contribute to the stability. the denture base is the primary supporting element. In these cases. Old restorations or caries might impose changes from the ideal supporting rests. A denture base that is similar to a full denture base that would have been prepared for a fully edentulous patient should achieve this. decide upon the necessary retentive elements. In the upper jaw. stability and retention in that order. The aim of this article is to describe a systematic approach to RPD design. If a RPD is the chosen solution. Choosing the right one involves considering biochemical factors. that track should be reversed until an acceptable design is found. The distal parts of the retentive clasps produce the active retention. aesthetics and patients' comfort. followed by a careful planning of support. Support should ideally be achieved by using metal rests on healthy tooth structure. a reciprocating element should be used. stability and retention. All other parts should be considered later. Additional elements should be added only at a later stage. Since these parts generate lateral forces on the abutment teeth. In fact. surveying of the model and analyzing the preliminary design on that surveyed model. The major connector converts forces from one side to the other.

While the flexibility of titanium would allow for cast clasps to be placed in deeper undercuts than advisable with cobalt-chromium. Brazil. it is possible that the retentive forces of the titanium clasp might not maintain sufficient retention after repeated flexing of the clasp arm during insertion and removal of the partial denture. PURPOSE: This article uses an academic approach to describe the criteria used to determine the path and removal of a removable partial denture. A fundamental requirement for understanding the correct use of the dental surveyor is to prevent indiscriminate use of a path of insertion perpendicular to the occlusal plane. and extreme inclinations of the cast in the attempt to create undercuts on some teeth. A dental surveyor can be used to prevent countless problems related to the production of removable partial dentures.

This high number of modifications reinforces the position that removable partial denture design should be instigated and guided by the dentist.

A variation in minor connector design for partial dentures.
Radford DR, Walter JD. Department of Prosthetic Dentistry, United Medical and Dental Schools, London, England. Whenever possible, the minor connector of a removable partial denture is located in the interdental embrasure. Recent evidence suggests that gingival attachment loss is more probable on the proximal aspect, thus minor connectors located in embrasures cover susceptible sites. A rationale and design are presented for locating the minor connector on the lingual aspect of the abutment tooth rather than in the interproximal area. PMID: 8507330 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] 92: Int J Prosthodont. 1991 Nov-Dec;4(6):539-42.

The rigid lingual connector: is it a paradox?
Cohen KD, Faigenblum MJ. Department of Periodontology, Eastman Dental Hospital, London. The design of removable partial dentures has progressed both clinically and in laboratory research. Nonetheless, there still appears to be a conflict between the empirical practice and the scientific data available. On this basis, the authors question several aspects of the lingual connector. If lingual connectors are required to be rigid, how is this best achieved and can it be assured that designs impart sufficient rigidity? On the contrary, is it possible to make the connector too rigid? No conclusions are attempted in this theoretical discussion, but research to resolve the dilemma is encouraged. PMID: 1817525 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] 93: Clin Mater. 1990;6(2):163-79.

An examination of the rigidity of major connectors for removable
partial dentures: an in-vitro study investigating horizontal loading of mandibular connectors.
Cohen KD, Faigenblum MJ. Department of Prosthetic Dentistry, Eastman Dental Hospital and Institute of Dental Surgery, London, UK. This study investigated the rigidity imparted by the dimensions and crosssectional shape of major connectors for a range of arch-forms. Sixteen cobalt chromium castings in all were fabricated, four in the form of standardised lingual bars, four as thickened lingual bars, four as lingual plates and two as modified sublingual bars. Arch-forms varied in length, radius of curvature and mid-sagittal angulation. All connectors were tested in compression on an Instron machine with and without a resilient base. The latter simulated the displacement of the periodontal membrane. A further apparatus was constructed to record the transmission of applied loads to the contralateral side of the arch; again resilient material was used as an analogue to the periodontal ligament. Results indicated that connector deflection varied directly with its length and inversely with its radius of curvature and the minimum cross-section of the anterior third. A 20 degrees change in mid-sagittal angulation was not significant. The theoretical relationships between a connector's dimensions and its rigidity were not confirmed. Regions of minimum connector dimension limited rigidity. The lingual bars and plates did not distribute lateral stresses effectively to the contralateral side of the arch and were found to be less rigid than the modified sublingual bars.
