5. Prosthodontic Instruments


This procedure usually gives the patient the advantage of retaining his natural anterior teeth until the denture is ready for insertion. Having natural teeth to use as a guide in selecting and arranging denture teeth and in determining relationships between the maxilla and mandible is often useful to the dental officer. The sequence of procedures followed in the fabrication of immediate dentures is similar to that described for other dentures. The extraction of the remaining teeth and insertion of the immediate denture are usually performed in the oral surgery section.
