PURPOSE: The stress-breaking ball (SBB) attachment can distribute the occlusal force equally between the alveolar ridge and the implants. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the implant-supported distal extension removable partial dentures (RPDs) with SBB attachment in 10 patients who were partially edentulous. METHODS: This randomized crossover study was designed to compare the function of RPDs with and without healing abutments and SBB attachments to support the posterior aspects of the RPDs...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits of implant support to Removable Partial Dentures (RPD) in patients with a bilateral free-ending situation in the mandible and to determine the most favorable implant position: the premolar (PM) or the molar (M) region. METHODS: Thirty subjects with a bilateral unbounded posterior saddle received 2 PM and 2M implants. A new RPD was placed. Implant support was provided 3 months later. Two PM implants supported the RPD. After 3 months the 2M implants were used or vice versa...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess performance, together with biological and technical complications, of implant-supported removable partial dentures (ISRPD) in mandibular Kennedy class I situations with implants placed in the anterior or posterior position. METHODS: 23 subjects with two endosseous implants to support a bilateral-free-ending mandibular removable denture were examined. Eight subjects had implants in the premolar (anterior) region and 15 subjects implants in the molar (posterior) region...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis comparing conventional removable partial dentures (RPDs) and implant-supported RPDs (ISRPDs) treatment in patients with an edentulous maxilla and a bilateral free-ending situation in the mandible. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty subjects were included. A new RPD was made and implant support was provided 3 months later. Treatment costs (opportunity costs and costs based on tariffs) were calculated...

PURPOSE: This study explored the relationship between implant support and the denture-supporting area by comparing the stability of an implant-supported distal extension removable partial denture and a conventional distal extension removable partial denture. METHODS: A model simulating a mandibular bilateral distal extension missing (#34-37 and #44-47) was fabricated using silicone impression material as soft tissue (2 mm thick) on an epoxy resin bone model. The denture base was reduced by 5 mm cutting part of both the retromolar pad and the lingual border...

PURPOSE: Removable partial dentures (RPDs) represent standard treatment for partial edentulism despite major shortcomings. To alleviate these shortcomings, endosseous implants provide support and stability as well as contribute to maintenance of alveolar bone. This prospective, within subject, time series study evaluated patient-based outcomes of RPDs compared to implant-supported removable partial dentures (ISRPDs). The study hypothesis was that the ISRPD would substantially improve oral health quality of life for patients...

PURPOSE: To review the published data on the treatment outcomes of restoring the partially edentulous patient with implant-supported removable partial dentures (ISRPDs) and describe the concept of ISRPDs and the clinical guidelines for placing implants for ISRPDs, and evaluate case series results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For the review, a literature search was performed using the PubMed and Ovid databases. Reports in English from 1969 to 2008 were considered. Also, 35 patients have had their dentition restored with ISRPDs supported by 67 implants...

PURPOSE: The use of a limited number of implants for support of a removable partial denture (RPD) changes a Kennedy Class I or II situation to that of a Class III. This in vivo pilot study evaluated implant-supported distal-extension removable partial dentures (RPD) in 5 partially edentulous patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two implants (Brånemark TU MK III, Nobel Biocare) were placed in a mandibular Kennedy Class I arch. To fabricate an implant-supported RPD (ISRPD), a conventional RPD base was fitted to the healing abutment with autopolymerizing acrylic resin (Uni-fast II, GC) to support the posterior aspect of the RPD...

OBJECTIVE: The incorporation of dental implants into removable partial dentures is a common clinical practice, but it is poorly documented in the dental literature. The purpose of this retrospective case series study was to evaluate the survival of endosseous dental implants used in restoring partially edentulous patients with implant-supported removable partial dentures (ISRPDs) of different configurations, based on up to 10 years of follow-up. METHOD AND MATERIALS: The sample consisted of 23 consecutively treated partially edentulous patients, who, between 1996 and 2005, had a total of 44 implants placed in different arch sites and who were treated with ISRPDs...
