The aim of the study was to examine changes in the position of the abutment teeth (AT), size of undercuts for a denture clasp, as well as an existence of an adequate preparation of abutment teeth. A total of 156 casts of partially edentulous jaws, with 460 AT, were analyzed. The size of undercuts, a degree of abutment rotation, inclination and migr...
