REVIEW
Túlio Eduardo Nogueira, Danilo Rocha Dias, Cláudio Rodrigues Leles
The single-implant mandibular overdenture (SIMO) has been proposed as an alternative for edentulous patients who are poorly adapted to their dentures due to low retention and stability of the conventional mandibular complete denture (CD). However, there is a lack of evidence regarding the effectiveness of SIMO, which can be measured by examining patient perception of treatment effects. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the comparative results of CD and SIMO treatments by using patient-reported outcome measures...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the influence of patient neuroticism on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in complete denture wearers. BACKGROUND: There are some indicators of complete denture prognosis. The relationship between personality traits, mainly neuroticism and OHRQoL in complete denture wearers remains unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 199 edentulous patients participated in this study. Neuroticism was investigated using the Japanese version of the modified short form of the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (MS-EPQ)...

I remember my first experience as a shy, inexperienced 17-year-old.I washed a lady who had died and who had no family or even next of kin. I did a property list and all that she had in her possession were spectacles, dentures and a pair of underpants.

The prevalence of stomatitis, especially caused by Candida albicans, has highlighted the need of new antifungal denture materials. This study aimed to develop an antifungal heat-curing resin containing quaternary ammonium monomer (dimethylaminododecyl methacrylate, DMADDM), and evaluate its physical performance and antifungal properties. The discs were prepared by incorporating DMADDM into the polymer liquid of a methyl methacrylate-based, heat-polymerizing resin at 0% (control), 5%, 10%, and 20% (w/w). Flexure strength, bond quality, surface charge density, and surface roughness were measured to evaluate the physical properties of resin...

Congenitally missing teeth and/or hypodontia is a prevalent dental anomaly. There are different treatment options available for these conditions such as space maintenance, restoring the space by resin-bonded-fixed-partial-dentures (RBFPDs), and dental implants. This study addresses the comprehensive treatments for congenitally missing tooth and diastema using interdisciplinary approaches. One patient was treated with small-diameter-implants and the other one was treated using an intraoral scanner to make digital impression and fabricating RBFPDs with CAD/CAM system...

INTRODUCTION: Xerostomia (dry mouth) is dryness of the mouth which is due to reduced salivary flow. Lack of adequate saliva causes discomfort in denture wearing patients and decreases retention of dentures. The ability of saliva to wet the tissue surface is one of the most important properties for oral comfort and retention of complete denture in dry mouth patients. AIM: This study was conducted to evaluate and compare the wetting ability of therapeutic Aloe vera saliva substitute and commercially available Aqwet saliva substitute on heat-polymerized acrylic resin...

Following tooth removal, three dimensional hard- and soft-tissue loss take place. Spontaneous healing makes the defect more severe and results in collapsing tissues. Implant placement is not feasible. In the aestethic zone even fixed partial dentures will not deliver the expected result. Our aim was to demonstrate that only ridge preservation enables implant placement and also provides excellent aestetic result even at frontal areas. CBCT was made before and 6-8 months after ridge preservation. Vertical and socket area measurements were carried out and compared in pre-, and postoperative images...

AIM OF THE STUDY: It is well known by previous important studies that mandible flexes during different jaw movements. According to this assumption it is very important to know how implant supported fixed partial dentures could restrict mandibular movements and, could lead to excess strain accumulation that could modify the resolution of implant treatment. The aim of our project is to create a bio-faithful model able to recreate mandibular movements, during three point bending test methods of (FIXED -PARTIAL -DENTURES) FPDs, to avoid a not flexible metal base, where models' properties doesn't allow to obtain a bio-faithful simulation during testing phases...

Partially or totally edentulous jaws frequently undergoes from moderate to severe bone atrophy with problems of prosthetic rehabilitation. The inability to make a prosthetic rehabilitation on implants may led to the use of a partial or total removable denture with difficulties in eating and speech, ulcerations of the oral mucosa and loss of facial vertical dimension. These problems may be solved performing bone augmentation procedures. Bone grafts and distraction osteogenesis brought implant dentistry from an experimental practice to become a consolidate dental procedure...

Logical categorization of implant-supported fixed partial dentures (ISFPDs) based on implant angulation, abutment type, and screw access channel (SAC) design for screw-retained restoration is not available in the literature. This article proposes a simple classification system to describe implant angulations and prosthesis design affecting abutment selection (engaging or nonengaging) for ISFPDs. An additional classification that addresses screw access channel designs is also introduced. These classifications provide clear interpretation of clinical scenarios for ISFPD design consideration and a basis for categorization of future complications...
