Question 1

Question
True or false: rebasing a denture can lead to an increase in OVD
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 2

Question
During a chairside soft reline procedure, the setting reaction of the material is:
Answer
  • Condenstion
  • Gelation
  • Addition
  • Hydroxylation

Question 3

Question
The aromatic ester in the liquid part of a soft chairside reline material is a...
Answer
  • Plasticiser
  • Primer
  • Adhesive
  • copolymer

Question 4

Question
Long term soft liners are made of one of two materials: Silicone and Acrylic. Silicone materials can be either [blank_start]cold[blank_end] curing or [blank_start]heat[blank_end] curing. Acrylic long term soft liners are [blank_start]heat[blank_end] cured - cold cured acrylics are only suitable for very [blank_start]short[blank_end] term linings and tissue [blank_start]conditioning[blank_end]. Cold curing silicone materials contain filler. As the level of filler rises, so does the level of [blank_start]water sorption[blank_end] and worsening of dimensional stability. The material is liable to [blank_start]tear[blank_end] and detach from the denture base. The [blank_start]abrasion[blank_end] resistance are poor. Heat curing silicone materials have lower levels of water sorption. [blank_start]Dimensional[blank_end] stability is therefore higher and the [blank_start]adhesion[blank_end] to the denture base is better. Long term soft acrylic linings contain either poly[blank_start]ethyl[blank_end]methacrylate or poly[blank_start]butyl[blank_end]methacrylate polymers and are heavily p[blank_start]lasticised[blank_end] to create softness.

Answer
  • Thermoplastic
  • Viscoelastic
  • Elastic

Question 8

Question
Which material is better at absorbing shock?
Answer

Question 9

Question
True or false: acrylic soft lining materials harden and become less elastic with time
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 10

Question
True or false: silicone soft lining materials become harder with time due to leakage of plasticiser
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 11

Question
True or false: it is better to process soft lining materials and the denture base at the same time to ensure better bond strength
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 12

Question
True or false: there is a marked benefit in increasing the thickness of silicone soft liners to improve impact resistance
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 13

Question
The "ideal interdigitation of teeth in which there is no cuspal interference in any position of jaw closure" is known as...

Answer
  • Freeway space
  • Occlusal vertical dimension
  • Resting vertical dimension

Question 17

Question
The problem with this man's dentures is likely a...
Answer
  • Lack of freeway space
  • Increased OVD
  • Increased freeway space

Question 18

Question
You are carrying out an intra-oral examination of a patient's denture. The patient's denture drops down when they open their mouth. What is the LEAST likely cause of this problem?
Answer
  • Problem with the polished surfaces
  • Problem with the occlusal surfaces
  • Problem with the fitting surfaces

Question 19

Question
You attempt to move a patient's lower denture back in their mouth to check stability. The denture freely moves backwards. What is the likely cause of this problem?
Answer
  • Action of the mentalist muscle
  • Overextension
  • Underextension
  • Posterior teeth above occlusal plane
  • Posterior teeth below occlusal plane

Question 20

Question
Complete dentures are usually set up on what type of articulator?
Answer

Question
A face bow record facilitates mounting on what type of articulator?
Answer
  • Average value
  • Fully adjustable
  • Semi adjustable

Question 22

Question
Antidepressants and tranquillisers can cause which of the following problems with dentures?
Answer
  • Generalised soreness of the mucosa
  • Tonacity of facial muscles
  • Reduced adaptation ability
  • Bone resorption
  • Acute ulceration
  • TMJ disorders
