Transcript

  • 1. Fixed Prosthodontics(component)<br />Done by : Ahmed Ali Al-Asmari<br />
  • 2. Components : <br />Retainers.<br />Pontics.<br />Abutments.<br />Connectors.<br />
  • 3. Retainers :<br />Part of the FPD will have metal castings, called retainers. They are made to fit onto what the dentist has cut away on the abutment teeth. Retainers also secure and support the FPD's artificial tooth or teeth. <br />
  • 4. Pontics :<br />A pontic is an artificial tooth that is suspended from the retainer casting. A pontic occupies the space formerly filled by the crown of a natural tooth.<br /> <br />
  • 5.
  • 6. Abutments :<br />The teeth that support and hold the retainer are called abutments. It is almost mandatory that an FPD be supported by an abutment at both ends. This requirement is waived in special situations.<br />
  • 7.
  • 8. Connectors :<br />A pontic is attached to a retainer by a connector. Connectors can be rigid or nonrigid. Nonrigid connectors take the form of male- and female-locking arrangements. Rigid connectors are classified as either cast or soldered.<br />
