1

the term used when the denture teeth are set in wax is

a. denture arrangement
b. denture set up
c. articulated set up
d. articulated arrangement

b. denture set up

2

to repair a broken denture, a thin layer is ground off. next, monomer is applied to the surfaces so that

a. some of the set material is dissolved
b. the setting reaction of the repair is accelerated
c. the finishing and polishing of the repair is made easier
d. the color of resin powder does not change

a. some of the set material is dissolved

3

heat activated acrylic resin systems are very similar to chemically activated systems. the major difference is

a. heat-activated systems have much less strength than chemically activated systems
b. more inhibitor is present in the liquid of heat-activated systems
c. chemical activator is present in the liquid of head-activated systems
d. no chemical activator is present in the liquid of heat-activated systems

d. no chemical activator is present in the liquid of heat-activated systems

4

most denture teeth used today are acrylic rather than porcelain. porcelain teeth are softer than acrylic teeth and do not cause excessive wear on natural opposing teeth

a. first is true, second is false
b. first is false, second is true
c. both are true
d. both are false

a. first is true, second is false

5

partial denture frameworks usually include

a. clasps, denture base and connectors
b. teeth, clasps and connectors
c. clasps, connectors and mesh
d. teeth, denture base, connectors and clasps

c. clasps, connectors and mesh

6

cross-linking of acrylic resins will improve the mechanical properties. the most important/beneficial property it would improve would be:

a. resilience
b. toughness
c. fatigue
d. creep

b. toughness

7

mandibular dentures are easier to wear than maxillary. saliva helps to improve the suction needed to hold a denture in place

a. first is true, second is false
b. first is false, second is true
c. both are true
d. both are false

b. first is false, second is true

8

the wax rims used for denture contraction serve to determine the patient's

a. midline
b. plane of occlusion
c. size of denture teeth
d. all of the above

d. all of the above

9

the acrylic resin of a partial denture is processed the same way as a complete denture except:

a. it takes less time because fewer teeth are involved
b. the finishing and polishing technique is much different
c. the acrylic resin nut flow through and around the mesh of the framework
d. it takes longer because of the design of the framework

c. the acrylic resin nut flow through and around the mesh of the framework

Listed below are the steps of constructing a denture. Numbering from 1-10, place the steps in sequential order
____ Casts and rims are mounted on an articulator
____ The master cast and denture setup are embed in stone within the denture flask
____ Acrylic resin is mixed and placed in the mold and the mold is then compressed
____ The patient has the wax try in
____ the mold is created by heating in hot water, the baseplate is removed, the wax is flushed out, and the teeth remain in stone.
____ the baseplate and wax rims are constructed on the master cast
____ the denture is removed from the mold, finished, polished, and disinfected
____ the baseplate and rims are fitted on the patient; midline, plane of occlusion, and bite determined
____ the flask is heated and the resin polymerizes
____ denture teeth are set in wax
