Sample MCQs


1.           The theoretically ideal occlusion:

a.       Is the same as a physiologic (“normal”) occlusion

b.       Is the type of occlusion we try to reproduce whenever we provide prosthodontic treatment

c.        Ensures that will be no TMD problems

d.       Serves as a reference for evaluating a patient’s occlusion


2.           When providing a 3-unit FPD for a patient:

a.       We always design the occlusion to the centric relation position

b.       We make sure that there are no non-working side interferences on the FPD

c.        We design cuspal morphology to be anatomically ideal

d.       Any irregularities in the opposing occlusal plane can be accommodated by matching them to the new FPD occlusal surface


3.           The criteria for a physiologic occlusion are:

a.       Occlusal stability

b.       Satisfactory assessment of masticatory  function by the dentist

c.        Speech and esthetics are satisfactory to the dentist

d.       Presence of mild TMD  


4.           Which ONE of the following statements is correct:

a.       A perfect occlusal morphology will always ensure optimal function

b.       The plane of occlusion is actually the mean (average) of the curvature of an imaginary surface

c.        The curve of Spee and the Curve of Wilson are the same

d.       Normal functional  activities can occur outside the spaces defined by the border envelopes of mandibular motion 


5.           The centric relation position:

a.       Is the maxillomandibular position that corresponds to the position of maximal intercuspation in most people

b.       Is possible to be recorded using a face-bow transfer

c.        Is a relatively stable position and can serve as a reliable reference maxillomandibular position in some cases

d.       All of the above     


6.           In most fixed prosthodontic procedures:

a.       The new occlusion must conform to centric relation

b.       The new occlusion must conform to idealized tripod occlusal contacts

c.        The new occlusion must conform to the existing occlusion

d.       There is no need to do an occlusal analysis before starting

 7.           Screw and tube attachments are useful in the following situations:

a.       In connecting one restoration of fixed partial denture to another

b.       Providing contingency planning

c.        Allowing the removal of long span fixed partial dentures for repair

d.       All of the above

e.        None of the above

8.           Partial-coverage interocclussal appliances:

a.       Will cause un controlled tooth movement

b.       Constructed in eccentric mandibular position

c.        It should be used before any fixed prosthodontic procedures

d.       None of the above 

9.        In unilateral partial denture with attachment: 

a.       Two or more abutments is needed

b.       Can be used with severely resorbed ridge

c.        The torque effect from the opposing arch is reduced

d.       All of the above  

10.           Adaptive responses to increased vertical dimension may include

a.       Teeth intrusion into alveolar bone

b.       Teeth hyper mobility

c.        Teeth wear

d.       All of the above
