Edentulous Patients and Care of Dental Prostheses
|Natural teeth that support an overdenture need to be cleaned on a regular basis. However, if the teeth supporting the overdenture are implants, they do not need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
|First is true and the second is false
|A denture brush is recommended for cleaning partial and full dentures rather than a regular manual toothbrush because
|the regular toothbrush will become worn and not clean the natural teeth effectively, the denture brush will fit the contours of a denture/partial better than a regular brush
|Which of the following cannot be place on an implant?
|none of the above.
|T/F: If need be, dentures can be scaled by the clinician to remove hard deposits?
|T/F: Abutment teeth are used in fixed partial dentures only, not in removal partial dentures.
|Used to close an acquired or congenital opening such as a cleft paate
|a removable denture that covers and is partially supported by one or more remaining teeth, or dental implants as well as the alveolar ridge
|used when a deciduous tooth is prematurely lost to keep position open for the eruption of the permanent tooth.
|Fixed Partial Denture
|a replacement for one or more missing teeth cemented to the abutment teeth
|replaces the entire dentition
|an artificial replacement of a missing part
|Removable Partial Denture
|a prosthesis that replaces one or more teeth and can be taken out of the mouth
|A wire or composite which is placed to hold two or more teeth together. The teeth can have grooves cut into them
|can result from an improper fitting denture inadequate homecare an allergy to a cleansing paste or solution or continuous wearing

|fissuring at the angles of the mouth with cracks ulcerations and erythema
|A fixed partial denture
|A Cantilever Bridge
|can be one or two teeth attached to an unsupported pontic
|A Maryland Bridge
|is bonded to porcelain on a crown
|T/F; full dentures are usually made of plastic but may at time be partially metal
|T/F: Lower dentures have better retention because of gravity
|T/F: When caring for a denture it should be placed in an ultrasonic bath and run for 3-5 minutes to help loosen any debris.
|T/F: The goal of proper care for a denture is to remove irritants to the tissue, prevent breath odor and aid esthetics as well as maintain the integrity and longevity of the appliance
|T/F: Biofilm can form on a denture and mineralize
|T/F: A patient with a proper fitting denture will always be aware of any lesion under or around the denture
