    205. A tissue undercut may preclude the selection of:

    • A.

      A suprabulge clasp

    • B.

      An infrabulge clasp

    • C.

      A half and half clasp

    • D.

      A combination clasp

    Correct Answer
    B. An infrabulge clasp
    Explanation
    A tissue undercut refers to an area where the soft tissues of the mouth are positioned below the height of contour of the tooth. This can make it difficult to place certain types of clasps on the tooth. An infrabulge clasp is designed to engage the undercut and provide stability and retention for a removable partial denture. Therefore, if there is already a tissue undercut present, using an infrabulge clasp may not be possible or effective.

      Depend on infrabulge and suprabulge

    • C.

      Depend on edentulous areas

    • D.

      None of above

    Correct Answer
    A. Undercuts for direct retainer
    Explanation
    The important factor in determining the path of insertion/dislodgement is the presence of undercuts for the direct retainer. Undercuts provide mechanical retention and stability for the prosthesis, allowing it to securely fit onto the abutment teeth or implants. Without undercuts, the prosthesis may not have sufficient retention and may be prone to dislodgement.

    Correct Answer
    A. Hard and soft tissue interferences
    Explanation
    The important factor in determining the path of insertion/dislodgement is hard and soft tissue interferences. These interferences can prevent the proper seating and stability of a prosthesis. They can create obstacles and prevent the prosthesis from fully engaging with the abutments. Therefore, the presence of hard and soft tissue interferences must be carefully evaluated and managed to ensure a successful path of insertion/dislodgement for the prosthesis.

      Artificial teeth with natural teeth

    • D.

      Occlusion of artificial teeth

    Correct Answer
    A. Fictional retention from guide surface/guide plate contacts
    Explanation
    The total retention for a RPD is obtained from the fictional retention from guide surface/guide plate contacts. This means that the retention of the removable partial denture is achieved through the contact between the guide surface and the guide plate, which creates a frictional force that holds the denture in place. The other options listed, such as artificial teeth with major connector, artificial teeth with natural teeth, and occlusion of artificial teeth, may contribute to the stability and functionality of the denture, but they do not directly affect the retention.

    242. A distal extension partial denture receives its support :

    • A.

      From terminal abutments

    • B.

      Equally from abutments and the residual ridges

    • C.

      Mostly from residual ridge

    • D.

      Exclusively from residual ridge

    Correct Answer
    C. Mostly from residual ridge
    Explanation
    A distal extension partial denture is a type of denture that is supported by both the remaining teeth (abutments) and the underlying bone ridge (residual ridge). However, the majority of the support for the denture comes from the residual ridge. This is because the abutments are located at the front of the mouth, while the distal extension area is at the back. Therefore, the residual ridge bears most of the load and provides stability for the denture.

    244. Metal bases use :

    • A.

      Big edentulous space

    • B.

      Small edentulous space (no room for grid work)

    • C.

      For anterior edentulous space

    • D.

      For posterior edentulous space

    Correct Answer
    B. Small edentulous space (no room for grid work)
    Explanation
    Metal bases are used in cases where there is a small edentulous space and there is no room for grid work. Grid work is a type of partial denture framework that is used to support the artificial teeth. In cases where there is not enough space for grid work, a metal base can be used instead. This allows for a more stable and secure fit of the denture in the mouth.

    Correct Answer
    C. Anterior 2/3 of retro-molar pad
    Explanation
    The mandibular distal extension RPD extends up to the anterior 2/3 of the retro-molar pad. This means that the removable partial denture (RPD) extends to the area just behind the abutment teeth, covering approximately two-thirds of the retro-molar pad. This is important for providing stability and support to the RPD, as well as maintaining proper function and aesthetics for the patient.

    • C.

      Poor framework design

    • D.

      Improper preliminary rehabilitative restorative procedures

    Correct Answer
    D. Improper preliminary rehabilitative restorative procedures
    Explanation
    Improper preliminary rehabilitative restorative procedures can lead to failure of patients wearing RPDs. These procedures include the initial steps taken before the RPD is fabricated, such as the assessment of the patient's oral health, the planning and execution of any necessary dental treatments, and the preparation of the mouth for the RPD. If these procedures are not performed correctly, it can result in an ill-fitting or uncomfortable RPD, causing the patient to experience difficulties and ultimately leading to failure.
