Abstract

The objects of this investigation were to discover the methods by which general dental practitioners communicated partial denture designs to dental laboratories and to ascertain the extent to which certain design criteria were being followed. The results of the survey showed that the responsibility for design appeared to be largely delegated to the technician. In most instances cobalt-chromium dentures were produced which would assist in maintaining oral health; however, this was not the case with acrylic dentures.
