ASSESSING THE ERRORS OCCURS DURING THE PROCESSING ON TEMPORARY PARTIAL DENTUREAbstract
Aim: To study the errors during processing on temporary partial denture. Objectives: To assess the errors during processing on temporary partial denture done by Saveetha Dental College students. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire for assessing the errors in processing temporary partial denture containing 24 questions are administered. The participants are dental students from Saveetha Dental College. Background: Temporary partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. Certain kinds of removal partial dentures can be used as permanent tooth replacement system especially for people who aren’t candidates for dental implants or fixed bridges. However the same rigidity and thickness that gives these rigid TPDs their durability can make them uncomfortable to wear, while the acrylic material they are made of is capable of staining and breaking. Overtime, the TPDs are prone to become loose-and they are also easy to flip in and out with the tongue. RPDs must be removed regularly for throughout the cleaning. Partial dentures make it easier for you to speak and chew. They help maintain the shape of your face and help prevent remaining teeth from shifting. Reason: To throw the light on the errors during the processing of temporary partial denture.
