Answer to Question #148


The best answer is

Incorrect. The metal should be cut back and thinned on the labial, not extended in the labial direction.

Incorrect. The statement is true but #2 is not the BEST answer. The guide plate should be positioned as much as possible to the lingual to limit the visible metal on the finished prosthesis.

Incorrect. The statement is true but #3 is not the BEST answer. The labial aspect of the guide plate should be thinned so that the artificial tooth or teeth can be shaped and positioned to avoid exposure of metal.

Correct. Both 2 and 3 are true statements so 4 is the BEST answer.
