BACKGROUND: Total tooth loss (edentulism) can be a debilitating condition, impacting on ability to chew, speak and interact with others. The most common treatment is with complete removable dentures, which may be successful, but in the lower jaw, bone resorption that worsens over time makes denture-wearing difficult. Two dental implants in the mandible to retain the lower denture has been advocated as the gold standard of treatment, but has not been universally provided due largely to financial constraints and also patient fear...

INTRODUCTION: Every patient needs a comprehensive treatment planning. Dentists must consider the advantages and disadvantages of the available implant prosthetic options and match them to patient's expectations. Hybrid denture prosthesis is one, i.e., fabricated and retained by screw threaded into implant abutments, most of the time on four implants. Sometimes due to failure of an implant, the prosthesis needs to be replaced with a newer casting to accommodate the existing implants. Clinical consideration: This article presents a novel technique, wherein the existing framework of the fixed prosthesis can be used to convert the fixed prosthesis to removable prosthesis on the existing implants, without recasting...

OBJECTIVE: The mechanical properties of bio adhesives in oral care application are expected to be critical in defining the stability and release of devices such as dentures from the oral tissue. A multiscale experimental mechanical approach is used to evaluate the performance of denture adhesive materials. METHODS: The inherent mechanical behavior of denture fixatives was examined by separating adhesive material from a representative polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) surface using atomic force microscopy (AFM) approaches and compared to macroscopic mechanical testing...

Implant-supported, full-arch hybrid prostheses have developed from cast-metal frameworks with acrylic or porcelain to all-ceramic zirconia frameworks. CAD/CAM manufacturing removed the inaccuracies seen with casting and made use of zirconia possible. The materials and processes for prosthodontic fabrication are explained. Zirconia is highly opaque and versatile. However, porcelain-veneered zirconia frameworks have shown higher enamel wear, among other problems. Lithium disilicate has been shown to be more translucent than zirconia...

BACKGROUND: Although it is understood that backside damage occurs in polyethylene acetabular liners, the effect of highly crosslinked polyethylene, which has completely replaced conventional polyethylene, has yet to be examined. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to answer the following questions: (1) With conventional polyethylene (CPE), did the acetabular design make a difference in backside wear? (2) Is there a difference in backside damage between CPE and crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) liners? (3) With XLPE, is the difference in backside wear between designs still present? (4) Is there any difference in backside damage in various zones on backside of individual liners? METHODS: This single-institution retrieval analysis involved visual damage scoring on the backside of 233 polyethylene liners implanted between 2002 and 2011...

When a patient presents with an implant with the internal threads damaged (or cross-threaded), a definitive restorative challenge may be faced. By having a difference in hardness between an abutment screw and the implant to which it is to be attached, there is potential for internal thread damage to the implant if the opposing threads do not interface properly. As such, the operator must use care when positioning the abutment and engaging the threads to prevent possible misalignment and damage to the internal aspect of the implant body...

PURPOSE: Many studies have identified risk factors for dental implant failure, although few have investigated the correlation among implant fixtures within single patients. A better analytical method may include repeated measures analysis including generalized estimating equations (GEE). This retrospective cohort study aimed to (1) identify the risk factors for failure of dental implantation and (2) evaluate an analytical method using GEE analysis. METHODS: We analyzed data on early and late implant failures in 296 patients providing 721 rough surface dental implants (2...

OBJECTIVES: Removable dentures with different denture teeth may provide different performance and resistance in implant and gingival situations, or anterior and posterior applications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two situations of removable dentures were investigated: gingiva (flexible) and implant (rigid) bearing. For simulating the gingiva/jaw situation, the dentures were supported with flexible lining material. For the implant situation, implants (d = 4.1 mm) were screwed into polymethylenmethacrylate (PMMA) resin...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of at least three abutment changes against the placement of a definitive abutment, which was no longer removed, on hard and soft tissue changes, and to compare the clinical outcomes of immediate non-occlusal loading versus conventional loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty patients requiring one single crown or one fixed partial prosthesis supported by a maximum of three implants were randomised, after implants were placed with more than 35 Ncm, according to a parallel group design to receive definitive abutments which were loaded immediately (definitive abutment or immediate loading group) or transmucosal abutments which experienced delayed loading after 3 months and were removed at least three times: 1) during the making of the impression (3 months after implant placement); 2) when checking the zirconium core of titanium abutments at single crowns or the fitting of the metal structure at prostheses supported by multiple implants; 3) at delivery of the definitive prostheses (repeated disconnection or conventional loading group)...
