PURPOSE The effect of major connector design on deflection in maxillary removable partial denture (RPD) frameworks under simulated occlusal loading was analyzed by means of three-dimensional finite element models. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen maxillary major connectors were produced for a Kennedy Class II case. Eleven frameworks consisted of posterior(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the dynamic retentive force of a mandibular unilateral distal-extension partial denture framework with a back-action clasp that was designed in a buccally tilted cast on a dental surveyor. The retention mechanism of this framework was analyzed in comparison with other typical unilateral and bilateral(More)
