Basic concepts of RPDs

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Saturday 17 January 2009 with 0 comments



Stability: resistance to horizontal, lateral and torsional forces (most important). All components of an RPD, except the retentive clasp tip, contribute to stability.

Support: resistance to vertical seating forces provided by rests and denture bases.

Retention: resistance to vertical dislodging (least important)-direct and indirect retainers.
