The need for a denture base that is hygienic in terms of plaque bond and build-up should be the focus of our research. The ability of the general dentist to encourage and educate the patient for oral hygiene will affect the success of partial dentures. It is the responsibility of the dentist and his ability to cooperate with the technician to properly design the partial dentures to reduce the unwelcome forces on the abutment. More research is needed to assess the effect of removable partial dentures and direct retainers on abutment teeth with and without periodontal inflammation.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
