# A pontic recommended in mandibular anterior areas with extensive ridge resorption:
A. Modified ridge lap
B. Modified ridge lap with no embrasures
C. Sanitary pontic
D. Bullet pontic


The correct answer is B. Modified ridge lap with no embrasures.

In the mandibular anterior region when there is minimal bone loss (and esthetics are involved), modified ridge lap is the preferable design; when there is extensive bone loss modified ridge lap with no embrasures is the preferable design.
