Tooth preparation for fixed prosthesis is a common procedure in clinical practice, which all general dentists should perform correctly. However, it could be difficult to obtain always a predictable result, especially for dental students or young doctors: they could make mistakes in their learning curve leading to inadequate results. Tooth preparation should have specific geometrical characteristics to provide necessary retention and resistance to the vertical and lateral forces acting on the restoration. There are various materials are available for fixed partial denture. Restoration of teeth is possible only if sufficient space is created for the application of thickness of restorative material required to replace the missing tooth


The aim of this studythe preference of finish line configurations fixed partial dentures among dental students.

Materials and Methods

200 dental students were randomly selected for the current study. The student included were who studying undergraduate(third year, final year and intern). Other year students were excluded from the study. A questionnaire of 10 questions were framed and were given to fill using a online survey platform to each of the students. The data was obtained and was statistically analysed


The results were analysed and represented the significant values


Thus from the present study we were able to find the more preferable finish line configuration that the dental students prefer applying in their dental restorative procedure which was equi-gingival shoulder finish line configuration
