DL 121 - Removable Partial Denture Technique


Credit Hours: 1

Study of basic techniques used in the fabrication of removable partial dentures. Demonstrations and RPD theory include fundamentals of survey and design, constructing refractory casts and casting removable partial denture frameworks utilizing chrome nickel alloy.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge of surveying and designing by constructing removable partial denture frameworks which require clasping of rotated and tilted teeth;
  • demonstrate all laboratory procedures necessary to construct partial denture frameworks using the combo-type cast wrought wire clasp;
  • explain all laboratory procedures necessary to construct partial denture frameworks using the combo-type wrought wire clasp soldered to framework;
  • explain quality control inspections of the finished frameworks, troubleshoot errors, and corrective action when indicated; and
  • explain how to mount maxillary and mandibular casts on a straight line articulator with trial base plates using plastic or porcelain teeth, process and finish.
