Forces acting through FPD on Abutment tooth

# The forces acting through a fixed partial denture on the
abutment tooth should be directed:
a) As far as possible at right angles to the long axis of the teeth
b) Parallel to the long axis of the teeth
c) By decreasing the mesio-distal dimension
d) None of the above


The correct answer is B. Parallel to the long axis of the teeth/

Ideally, the forces acting on the abutment tooth should be parallel to long axis of the tooth and should be within the confines of the root. By this, the stress is directed vertically which is well tolerated by the periodontium. Narrowing the buccolingual width of occlusal surfaces of the constructed crowns help to achieve these desirable forces.
