16 Intra Oral Landmarks Incisive Papilla Denture Bearing areas / Upper 1 . The incisive papilla is a thick part of the mucous membrane coveringthe incisive foramen.2 . It is located at the anterior end of the median palatine raphae .3 . The nasopalatine nerves and vessels pass through the incisive foramento supply the anterior 2 / 3 of the palate.4 . In some cases due to the excessive bone resorption, the papilla may lieon the crest of the ridge.5 . The incisive papilla should be relieved to avoid pressure on the incisivenerves and vessels.CAUSING BURNING SENSATION IN THE ANT. 2/3 OF PALATE
17 Denture Bearing areas / Upper Palatine RugaeRaugae Area1 . It is an irregularly shaped elevations of soft tissue extendinglaterally from the midline in the anterior part of the hard palate.2 . It serves as one of stress bearing areas in the palate .
18 Denture Bearing areas / Upper Median Palatine RaphaeMedian Palatine Raphae1 . The midline of the hard palate is covered by a thin layer ofmucoperiostium , that covers the median palatine suture .2 . That suture joins the right and the left halves of the hard palate.3 . It is usually relieved to increase denture stability by preventing its rocking .
19 Denture Bearing areas / Upper Fovia PalatinaFovia Palatina1 . It helps in the determination of the posterior borderof the upper denture.2 . The posterior border of the upper denture should be 2 mmposterior to the fovea Palatina .
20 To Continue ( Bearing Areas) Residual Alveolar RidgeResidual Alveolar Ridge1 . It should be firm specially in the lower ridge .2 . It covers the crest of the lower ridge.3 . Its mobility may cause pressure symptoms under the lower denture.4 . Also can affect denture stability .
21 To Continue ( Bearing Areas) Buttress Part Of BoneButtress Part Of Bone1 . It is formed of the lower portion of the zygomatic process of the maxilla(the area above the first molar teeth) .2 . It provides excellent resistance to the vertical forces(Support).
22 To Continue ( Bearing Areas) TuberosityTuberosity1 . It is important for retention and support of the upper dentureagainst lateral movement.2 . The denture should cover it , because it is one of stress bearingareas in the upper jaw .
23 To Continue ( Bearing Areas) Immovable Part of Soft PalateImmovable Part of Soft Palate1 . The immovable part lies adjacent to the hard palate and themovable part lies more posterior.2 . The posterior edge of the upper denture should end at the junctionof these two parts .
24 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Labial FrenumLabial FrenumIt must be relieved in the denture by making a V-shape notchin the labial flange opposite to its position .
25 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Labial VestibuleLabial Vestibule1 . It Is the reflection of the mucosa of the lip to the mucosa of thealveolar process in the labial vestibule.2 . The denture in this area is in relation to the orbicularis oris and thesuperior incisive muscles .3 . These muscles limit the thickness and the length of the labial flangeof the denture.
26 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Buccal FrenumBuccal Frenum1 . It is a fold of mucous membrane (tendon of the buccinator muscle)varies in size in number and in position .2 . A notch is made in the denture flange opposite to its position tofacilitate its functional movements.
27 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Buccal VestibuleBuccal Vestibule1 . The denture in this area is related to buccinator muscle.2 . Buccal flanges must extend in the buccal vestibule .3 . Due to the horizontal direction of the fibers of this muscle;the contraction of this muscle will not displace the denture.
28 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Hamular NotchHamular Notch1 . It is one of the important landmarks for determination of the posteriorlimit of the upper denture .2 . A straight line from hamular notch on one side to the other on the otherside determines the posterior limit of the upper denture
29 Denture Limiting Structures (Upper) Vibrating Line( Ah Line)Vibrating Line( Ah Line)1 . It separate the movable part from the immovable part of the soft palate.2 . This line is 2mm posterior to the fovea palatine .3 . This line determines the posterior end of the upper denture.
30 Denture Bearing and Limiting Structures (Lower) Retro Molar BadRetro Molar pad1 . It is a pear shaped area of mucous membrane at the posterior end of themandibular ridge and anterior to the pterygomandibular raphae .2 . It consists of mucous glands , temporal tendon , fibers of thebuccinators and superior constrictor muscle .3 . Lower denture should cover this area for retention and to coverthe buccal shelf of bone.
31 Denture Bearing and Limiting Structures (Lower) Buccal Shelf Of BoneBuccal ShelfOf Bone1 . The area that lies between the crest of the residual ridge andthe external oblique ridge.2 . It is the primary stress bearing area in the lower arch .3 . It forms good support for the lower denture .
32 Denture Bearing and Limiting Structures (Lower) Buccal VestibuleBuccal Vestibule1 . The denture in this area is related to the buccinator muscle .2 . Its contraction does not displace the lower denture so flanges ofthe lower denture must extend in the buccal vestibule.
33 Denture Bearing and Limiting Structures (Lower) Buccal FrenumBuccal Frenum1 . It is a fold of mucous membrane in the premolar area, movement ofthe lip and the cheek move the frenum .2 . A notch is made in the lower denture to accommodate the frenum.

51 Boxing the impressionAn impression is boxed to preserve the borders of the impression so that it will be accurately reproduced in the cast.
52 Methods for boxing1- Wax method 2- Plaster and Pumice method
58 Advantages of boxing1- The borders of the impression are preserved. 2- The thickness of the base can be controlled 3- It permits vibrating, prevents air bubbles and gives us denser cast. 4- Time for pouring the cast is conserved. 5- Materials are conserved.
60 USES Of The OCCLUSION BLOCKS They help in1- Supporting the lips and cheeks to restore the contour of extraoral landmarks.2-The orientation of the occlusal plane.3- Determining the vertical dimension.4-Recording the centric and eccentric jaw relations.
61 Cont. Uses of the Occlusion Blocks 5- Selecting the size and position of the artificial teeth by the aid of the following markings :a- Midlineb-High lip linec- Canine line6-Providing a matrix for arranging teeth.
65 Shape of Relief AreaIt is never well defined. It merges into the surrounding fitting denture surface.Depth of Relief:It depends on the compressibility of the area to be relieved as wellas that of the surrounding areas.
66 Methods of ReliefI- Direct1-Scrap the finalimpression2-Build tin foilon the mastercastII- Automatic
69 II- Automatic Relief (Selective Pressure Impression Technique) B- Secondary impression in Zn/O eugenol or plaster.A- Scraping the compoundselectively.
70 Value of ReliefRelief of sensitive areas increases the comfort of the patient.Relief of hard areas improves the denture stability, so itProlongs the duration of denture service by compensating for denture settling and some ridge resorption .Compensate for polymerization shrinkage.

72 Functions of posterior palatal seal Retention of maxillary denture.Prevents food accumulation under the denture.Compensates for polymerization shrinkage.Reduces patient’s discomfort.
82 Basic mandibular movements Rotationin the lower compartmentTranslationin the upper compartment
83 Possible Mandibular Movements They are usually classified according to the main direction of movement. The starting position is the habitual intercuspal position, from this point the mandible can move into:Opening and Closing MovementLateral MovementForward & Backward Movement
94 Vertical dimension Two types are identified: 1- VDR “ The measurement, when the mandible is in the physiologic rest position.”.2- VDO“ The measurement , when the teeth or occlusion rims are in contact.”
95 The interocclusal distance “ It is the difference between the VDR and the VDO. In normal individuals its average value is 2-4 mm. It is also termed interocclusal clearance, gap &/or freeway space.”
96 Short term variables 1- Head position 2- Respiration 3- Stress Variables of the VDRShort term variables 1- Head position 2- Respiration 3- StressLong term variables 1- Loss of propiceptors decrease 2- Age decrease
97 Sequalae of Improper Vertical Dimension of Occlusion
98 Jaw relation record (Maxillomandibular relationship record) “It is a registration of any positional relationship of the mandible relative to the maxilla.”Records have to be obtained before casts are mounted on the articulator using the ??????.
106 “A device used to locate the transverse hinge or the condylar axis.” Types of Face BowsMandibular“A device used to locate the transverse hinge or the condylar axis.”Maxillary“A device used to record the relation between the maxilla and the TMJ ( terminal hinge axis or condylar axis) and to transfer this relation to the articulator.”
107 Maxillary Face Bow Components: Graduations on the rod Graduated Condylar RodsInfraorbital PointerBite ForkTightening clampUniversal Joint /Jack ClampU Shaped Bow
108 Maxillary Face Bow Record 1- Bite fork is heated and inserted into the rim .
109 Cont. Maxillary Face Bow Record mm2-The condylar axis is then determined either accurately or arbitrary on the canthus tragus line.
110 Cont. Maxillary Face Bow Record 4- Universal joint once tightened , never opened.
111 Maxillary Face Bow Transfer 1- The slide bar clamp is unscrewd to remove assemblyfrom the face.
112 Cont. Maxillary Face Bow Transfer 2- Assembly is now centralized on the articulator.
113 Mandibular Face BowLimited opening and closing allows the condylar rods to draw arcs.The rods are moved towards the center of the arcs, until they movein a point . The latter is called the still point and represents thecondylar axis. The condyle in this position lies in the most retrudedunstrained position in the glenoid fossa, so mandible and maxilla arein centric.
114 ARTICULATORSThe articulator is a mechanical device which represents the temporomandibular joint and jaw members to which maxillary and mandibular casts may be attached..
115 Functions of Articulators 1- Helps in maintaining the desired jaw relationship of the cast during setting up of the teeth in the absence of the patient reproduces the mandibular movements.
116 Types Of Articulators Simple Hinge Articulator Mean (Average )Value or Fixed Condylar Path Articulator : Adjustable Articulators : A- Semiadjustable condylar path articulators B- Fully adjustable condylar path articulators
117 1- Simple hinge articulator Eg. Gariot’s articulator
118 2- Mean (average) value or fixed condylar path articulator Eg. Gysi and El Mahdy articulator
