Kratochvil’s Fundamentals of Removable Partial Dentures
by Ting-ling Chang (Author), Daniela Orellana (Author), III Beumer, John (Author)
This textbook provides an overview of Kratochvils design philosophy and the basic principles of biomechanics it is based upon. Topics include components of RPDs and their functions, design
sequences for maxillary and mandibular RPDs, and techniques for surveying and determining the most advantageous treatment position. A chapter dedicated to digital design and manufacturing of
RPD frameworks highlights new technology in this emerging field. Additional topics include optimizing esthetic outcomes through attachments and rotational path RPDs as well as applying the
RPI system to patients with maxillofacial defects. The authors provide illustrations of clinical cases In the 1960s, Professor F. J. Kratochvil recognized the importance of biomechanics in
removable partial denture (RPD) design and used these principles to develop a new design philosophy. This RPI systema clasp assembly consisting of a rest, a proximal plate, and an I-bar
retainerchanged how clinicians approach partial denture design and is now used throughout the world. throughout the book as well as an illustrated glossary of prosthodontic terminology. This
textbook will prepare students and general practitioners to design and fabricate a biomechanically sound RPD framework for just about any dental configuration they encounter.Contents 1.
