1. Temporary restoration of choice for reversible pulpitis is [MECEE 2077]

Zinc Phosphate

Zinc Polycarboxylate

Zinc  Oxide eugenol

Calcium Hydroxide


Correct answer: C

Nisha Garg Page number 232

Zinc oxide eugenol cement is one of the oldest used cements. Though other cements are also used for temporization, but zinc oxide-eugenol cement is used most commonly because it is only mild irritant to the pulp, less soluble in oral fluids and produce better marginal seal than zinc phosphate.

A.      Incisal/occlusal embrasure increases in size from anterior to posterior teeth. 

B.      Cervical embrasure decreases in size from anterior to posterior teeth.

C.      Incisal embrasure of maxillary lateral incisor and canine is longest.

D.      Incisal embrasure of maxillary canine and premolar is narrowest

Correct answer: D

Incisal embrasure of maxillary canine and premolar is widest.


3. Antimicrobial action of saliva is carried out by all of the above except





Correct answer: C

Saliva is rich in IgA not IgG.


4. Untrue about fluoride content in a normal and decayed tooth is

Fluoride content is lesser in carious enamel and dentin as compared to a sound tooth. 

Fluoride content in sound enamel is lesser than sound dentin.

Fluoride level and carious status of a tooth are independent and unrelatable

Dentin requires higher levels of fluoride for remineralization than enamel.

Correct answer: C

Nisha Garg Page number no 45



·         In sound enamel and dentin, fluoride content is 410 ppm and 873 ppm, respectively. 

·         In carious enamel and dentin, fluoride content is 139 ppm and 223 ppm. 

·         Dentin requires higher levels of fluoride for remineralization (100 ppm) than enamel (5 ppm).


5. An instrument has an instrument formula 10-85-8-14. What is its primary cutting edge angle?

a.       85 degrees

b.      8 degrees

c.       8.5 degrees

d.      306 degrees

Ans: D       (Ref: sturdevants 5th ed page no. 329)

·         The second number of a four-number code indicates the primary cutting edge angle, measured from a line parallel to the long axis of the instrument handle in clockwise centigrades.The angle is expressed as a percent of 360 degrees (e.g., 85 = 85% × 360 degrees = 306 degrees). The instrument is positioned so that this number always exceeds 50.


1.       6. The minimal cavosurface enamel margin of a tooth preparation is

a.       300-400

b.      600

c.       90

d.      1400

Ans: C (ref: Sturdevants 7th edition page number 121)

·         The nature of enamel formation requires that the preparation walls be, at minimum, oriented 90 degrees to the external surface of the enamel so as to maintain a continuous connection with the essential supporting dentin beneath. An enamel wall with this coniguration is able to withstand the forces associated with occlusal loading.


7. The preferred position for most of the dental procedures

Right Front Position

Right Position

Right Rear position

Correct answer: C

Nisha Garg Page number number 151

Right-handed operator— preferred positions

·         Right front or 7 o’clock

·         Right or 9 o’clock

·         Right rear or 11 o’clock

·         Direct rear or 12 O’ clock

  1. They see a rustic that has no future and know that occasion that they} keep, they may have no future both. By now, it's turning into clear, and not solely to the youthful generation, that Putin’s 먹튀사이트 먹튀프렌즈 state can impose its rule solely through violence. At least since Soviet times, Russians have used darkish humor to cope with dictatorship. There is not sufficient evidence that this roulette wheel is unfair.
