BH Harshitha Gowda1, CL Satish Babu2 The rigid and nonrigid connectors can increase the lifespan of an abutment in the five-unit FPD as it transfers less stress on the abutments. Objectives: The goal of every prosthetic management is to simulate nature and be in harmony with nature within the physiological limits. Add-On Type Terminal Block 100 Amp. The bonhomie of rigid and nonrigid connectors can increase the lifespan of an abutment in 5-unit FDPs as it transfers less stress on the abutments. The frequent use of rigid connectors in day to day practice in such situations results in failure and instability of the prosthesis. Usually this is accomplished with rigid connectors (), although nonrigid connectors are occasionally used.The latter are usually indicated when it is impossible to prepare a common path of placement for the abutment preparations for a partial FDP (Fig. Rigid-Flex PCB vs. Angle Orthodont 1996;66:261-4.
