Cast partial denture design

Introduction to Cast Removable Partial Dentures and Surveying - publication  June 19, 2013 – 07:39 am


Clear visualization of the materials and technical procedures demonstrated in real time through videos add another dimension to student learning that is not available from written/verbal descriptions or still images/teaching aids alone. A series of 11 short video clips provide an introduction to the parts of a cast removable partial denture (RPD) and the steps involved in the surveying process. Surveying is an essential skill that dental students need to develop to evaluate and design cast RPDs.

The parts of a cast RPD are identified on a maxillary cast RPD. The Ney surveyor set-up and instrumentation are shown. The process of selecting an appropriate path of insertion that takes into consideration guide planes and undercuts are shown in the preliminary survey of a maxillary cast. Markings of tripod lines, transfer-tripod points, undercut locations and survey lines are demonstrated in the final survey.
The effort required to set the previously surveyed cast back to the marked path of insertion on the Ney dental surveyor is simulated. Drawing of the cast RPD design on the surveyed cast is demonstrated. Video footage is separated into 11 video clips ranging in duration from one minute to 4 minutes.
I would like to acknowledge Lola Wong for the excellent technical support she provided to produce and edit the videos. I would also like to acknowledge Dr. Nita Mazurat for her inspiration and encouragement to develop this series of teaching videos.

I agree

With what doc raleigh said.
If what you have now is an all plastic temporary partial, chances are you'll experience a more secure fit when you get the partial that has a cast metal framework. This will have clasps that fit and hold to your natural teeth more accurately than your temp.
Some factors that might affect how loose that new partial feels are how tight the clasps are set, and the position of your 5 remaining teeth (which determines the design of your partial.....some partial designs will tend to be more stable, with less movement than other designs)But, in general, cast metal framework partials are going to have less movement in the mouth than a full lower denture
