The authors examined the frequency of the last remaining tooth's positions in both arches and they found the canine in the lower arch in 63% and the second molar in 13% of the second molar. In single remaining tooth situations the rate of wearing denture is 73%. The cariological status of these teeth is negligible in relation to the bad periodontal health conditions, which are not influenced essentially by crowns or wearing dentures.
