Effects of a removable partial denture and its rest location on the forces exerted on an abutment tooth in vivo.

Abstract

The 3-dimensional forces exerted on an abutment tooth of a removable partial denture (RPD) were measured in vivo during clenching using a force-measuring device with a piezoelectric transducer. The device was mounted on the mandibular right second premolar of a subject with an edentulous maxilla. The magnitude of the forces was higher and the direction was… (More)
