62. Discuss the reasons why we perform a clinical remount when delivering an extension base RPD. (6 points)
• The rationale for doing a patient articulator remount and equilibration is to obtain a definite, repeatable, proven relationship of the maxillary and mandibular arches prior to final adjustments of the opposing occlusal surfaces. The occlusion developed at this time affects the freedom of mandibular movement and influences the forces delivered to teeth and support tissues. Adjustments on the articulator are easily observed, the movements are repeatable, and refinement can be precise and quick.
