2The Prosthodontics is a part of the dental science that improve the esthetic and functional aspects of the oral and maxillofacial region through artificial restoration of the lost teeth and adjacent soft tissues
3Complete denture Prosthodontics The part that restore all the natural teeth and related tissue artificially
4Removable partial denture Prosthodontics The part that restore one or more absent teeth and soft tissue through removable prosthesis
5Fixed Prosthodontics The part that restore one or more absent teeth through fixed prosthesis
6Dentulous – Full complement of teeth. Edentulous – Lost all the teethPartially edentulous – Lost a few teeth

11Occlusion -What is occlusion? Occlude means ‘to close’
12Any contact between the incising or masticatory surfaces of the maxillary and mandibular teeth’ is termed as occlusion
13Occlusal Plane -Average plane established by incisal and occlusal surfaces of the teeth
14Curve of spee – seen in Natural dentition. Anatomic curvature of occlusal surfaces of teeth beginning at the tip of the lower canine and following the buccal cusps of the premolars and the molars, continuing to the anterior border of the Ramus,
15Curve of Wilson:It is the mediolateral curve that contacts the buccal and lingual cusp tips on each side of the arch. It results from the inward incination of the posterior teeth ( mandibular molars ), making the lingual cusps lower than the buccal cusps.
16Centric Occlusion – the occlusion the patient makes when they fit their teeth together in maximum intercuspation - A cusp to fossa relation.
17The masticatory (or stomatognathic) system is generally considered to be made up of three parts: the Teeth, the Periodontal Tissues, and the Articulatory System.
18Key of occlusion First key, Molar inter-arch relationship, the upper first molar's mesio-buccal cusp should essentially occlude into the buccal groove, of the lower first molar.The first upper molar's mesio-palatal cusp must occlude into the central fossa of lower first molar
19Second keyThe mesial slope of the maxillary canine is in line with the distal slope of the mandibular canine.
21When the maxillary and mandibular teeth contact simultaneously the condylar proceses are fully seated in the mandibular fossae
22Maxillary and mandibular teeth should contact evenly to allow optimum function,To minimize trauma to the supporting structures, andTo allow an even load distribution throughout the dentition.
23Occlusal interferences Interferences are undesirable occlusal contacts that may produce mandibular deviation during closure to maximum intercuspation.
24When there is occlusal interferences there is trauma which cause tissue changes in periodontal ligament space
25Centric relationCentric relation is defined as the maxillomandibular relationship in which the condyles articulate with the thinnest avascular portion of their respective diskswith the condyles in the anterosuperior position against the shapes of the articular eminences.This position is independent of tooth contact.
