Placement of the NRC on one or both side of pier abutment … Abutments for removable partial dentures Abutments for immediate over denture -Summary The _____ is the part of an FPD that holds the pontic and retainers together. The castings were seated on their respective dies and vertical marginal discrepancy was measured at four points for each casting with the help of an optical microscope. Connectors are the part of a fixed partial denture (FPD) that unites the retainers and pontics [ 1 ].Connectors may be rigid (solder joints or cast connector) or non-rigid (precision attachment or stress breaker). This was followed by the placement of telescopic superstructure. The potential stress from pier abutments needs to be dissipated. (See Figure 20.) fixed partial denture (FPD) utilizing pier abutment [2]. Arch Med Health Sci 2016;4:89-92. The area of minimum stress concentration occurs in pier abutments when a NRC is located at the distal region of the pier abutment for a 5-unit FPD. Non rigid connectors in fixed Prosthodontics: Current concepts with a case report. Fixed partial dentures (FPDs) are "dental prostheses that are luted, screwed, or mechanically attached or otherwise securely retained to natural teeth, tooth roots, and/or dental implant abutments." Shillinburg HT Jr., Sather DA, Wilson EL, Cain JR, Mitchell DL, Blanco LJ. Pier abutment poses a challenge to prosthodontist. J Clin Diagn Res 2014;8:ZD12-3.

An up to 15-year longitudinal study of 515 metal-ceramic FPDs: Part 1. In this prosthesis, the movement of the nonrigid connector is enough to prevent the pier abutment from serving as a fulcrum. Mattoo K, Brar A, Goswami R. Elucidating the problem of pier abutment through the use of a fixed movable prosthesis – A clinical case report. Pier Abutments:An edentulous space can occur on both sides of a tooth, creating alone, freestanding pier abutment. The cantilever fixed partial denture (FPD) is a restoration with one or more abutments at one end and unsupported at the other end. They are mainly used to relieve stress on the abutment and to accommodate malaligned FPD abutments. An alternative to the cantilevered FPD is the osseointegrated implant. Moreover, an intermediate abutment is a natural tooth located between terminal abutments that serve to support a fixed/removable prosthesis. A 3-dimensional cross-section FEM model (SAP 2000) simulating a 5-unit metal ceramic FPD with a pier abutment with rigid or non-rigid designs (connector location at the mesial region of the second molar, at the distal region of the second premolar, at the mesial region of the second premolar, and at the distal region of the canine) was developed. When a rigidly designed FPD with pier abutment is being used, it will act as a lever, high stress concentrations will result at the pier abutment and excessive displacements may be observed at the terminal abutments, leading to damage to the abutment teeth. Nonrigid connectors for fixed partial dentures. If the abutment presents significant mobility, If the span between the abutments is longer than one tooth because the stresses transferred to the abutment tooth under soldered retainer would be destructive.

The pier abutment: A review of the literature and a suggested mathematical model. The key to the management of pier abutment: An alternative approach A 46-year-old female patient with missing teeth involving a pier abutment was rehabilitated with a fixed dental prosthesis with key-keyway connectors. Treatment planning for mouth rehabilitation. a tooth in the middle of a FPD where there is a missing tooth on each side of it, and then abutment teeth on the other side of those (Tooth, space, pier, space, tooth) what type of lever is created with a pier abutment? J Prosthet Dent 1952;2:230-45. J Am Dent Assoc 1973;87:1195-9. In this case the restoration seen on this patient is still functioning fine 29 years after placement. The _____ is the part of an FPD that fits over the abutment and what the pontic is attached to. If the posterior retainer and pontic are opposed by a removable partial denture or an edentulous ridge while the two anterior retainers are opposed by natural dentition. The cantilevered FPD requires at least two abutment teeth. Rigid connectors between retainers and pontics are the preferred way of fabricating most FPD. Pier abutment is an intermediate abutment for a fixed dental prosthesis. Tooth movements in divergent directions create stresses, that are transferred to the abutments & cause failure of the weaker retainer as the pier abutment … 6. Physiologic tooth movement, arch position of the abutments, and a disparity in the retentive capacity of the retainers can make a rigid fiveunit fixed partial denture a … Botelho MG, Dyson JE. Indian J Dent Adv 2011;3 Suppl 1:770-7. The Cantilever Bridge is ordinarily done in the front teeth area or areas of the mouth that receive minimal stress. Pier abutments A pier (intermediate) abutment is a natural tooth located between terminal abutments that serve to support a fixed or removable dental prosthesis. Dange SP, Khalikar AN, Kumar S. Non-rigid connectors in fixed dental prosthesis — A case report. An alternative orientation of nonrigid connectors in fixed partial dentures. Banerjee S, Khongshei A, Gupta T, Banerjee A. Non-rigid connector: The wand to allay the stresses on abutment. Special considerations Pier abutment Tilted molar abutment Abutment for the cantilever FPD -Endodontically treated teeth as abutments. In addition, to overcome the undue stresses due to nonparallel abutments in a long-span FPD, it was planned to provide with nonrigid connectors. When the edentulous space is only one tooth long, one can incorporate a non-rigid Martin SL. 1 During the past decades, many types of FPDs or "bridges" have been used to replace missing teeth. Int J Prosthodont 2002;15:439-45. Adams JD. J Am Dent Assoc 1973;87:1195-9. When multiple teeth are involved, interlocks can be used to cement smaller segments, thus deliver splinting effect, Long-span FPDs, which can distort due to the contraction and pull of porcelain on thin sections of metal framework and thus, affect the fit of the prosthesis on the teeth, When prognosis of the distal abutment is questionable and fabrication of the removable partial denture is the subsequent treatment step, nonrigid connector can resolve the problem of repeating restoration of remaining abutments.

A An FPD with the pontic rigidly fixed to the retainer provides adequate strength and stability to the prosthesis and also minimizes the stresses associated with the restoration. J Prosthet Dent 2005;94:10-92. Stress analysis of effects of nonrigid connectors on fixed partial dentures with pier abutments. Casting of the male pattern was contemplated, Now, matrix and patrix were assembled together, Porcelain fused to metal with buccal facing was done on #13–#16 and full metal restoration was done on #17. Five castings each were made for single crown, 3-unit fixed partial denture and multiple-unit fixed partial denture (FPD) with pier abutment for each convergence angle. ... Pier. The prosthesis was cemented with glass ionomer cement, Conventional tooth abutment preparations with less reduction, Simplified angulation and placement of the nonrigid connector with mesially inclined posterior abutment, Chances of key getting unseated from keyway on mesial movement of the abutment, Fabrication of nonrigid connector is technique sensitive and requires increased laboratory time and, Dovetail (key-keyway) or (tenon-mortise) connectors, Pier abutment, which acts as a fulcrum, causes failure of the weakest of the terminal abutments, Malaligned abutment, where parallel preparation might result in devitalization. The use of intracoronal attachments as connectors is advocated, Mobile teeth, which need to be splinted together with the fixed prosthesis. The aim of the study is to evaluate the stress distribution in tooth supported 5-unit fixed partial denture (FPD) having tooth as pier abutment using rigid and nonrigid connectors respectively, under simultaneous and progressive loading.
