  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    Old claims not important 

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    Not novel at all

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?


  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?

    The article is not written properly.

  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?


  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?


  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    The title itself has short forms, there is no introduction.

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    Not at all.

this article in particular describes in detail and pinpoints  the various possible causes and failures  of teeth supported  fixed dental prosthesis abbreviated as TSFDP . FDP  had been the new abbreviation put forth in place by glossary of prosthodontic terms  instesd of FPD. the  article contains various headings and sub headings  in numerical order  which will be easier to read and understand . abstract of the article by itself is an introduction and that is why no seperate introduction had been posted by me in my article. there are very few  fixed prosthodontic text books which currently explains the failure modes of fdp. MY AIM WAS TO ENLIGHTEN  all potential readers about the failures of FDP. continuous paragraphs  in the discussion  column of the article  was avoided by me because that will dilute the  core  message of the article. any reader should be able to recollect mentally  maximum number of points  after finishing reading of my article.
