Dental crown and bridge implant endodontics

M W Pennington, C R Vernazza, P Shackley, N T Armstrong, J M Whitworth, J G Steele
AIM: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of root canal treatment for a maxillary incisor tooth with a pulp infection, in comparison with extraction and replacement with a bridge, denture or implant supported restoration. METHODOLOGY: A Markov model was built to simulate the lifetime path of restorations placed on the maxillary incisor following the initial treatment decision. It was assumed that the goal of treatment was the preservation of a fixed platform support for a crown without involving the adjacent teeth...

BACKGROUND: A frequent encounter in clinical practice is the middle-aged adult patient complaining of a toothache caused by the spread of a carious infection into the tooth's endodontic complex. Decisions about the range of treatment options (conventional crown with a post and core technique (CC), a single tooth implant (STI), a conventional dental bridge (CDB), and a partial removable denture (RPD)) have to balance the prognosis, utility and cost. Little is know about the utility patients attach to the different treatment options for an endontically abscessed mandibular molar and maxillary incisor...

UNLABELLED: Crown and bridgework has a finite life span and fails for a number of reasons. Removal is often by destructive means. There are a number of clinical circumstances, however, in which a conservative disassembly would aid the practitioner in completing restorative/endodontic procedures. The aims of this paper are to provide a classification for crown and bridge removal systems; describe how a number of such systems work; and when and why they might be considered. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Crown and bridge removal is a frequent occurrence for dentists...

BACKGROUND: The effect of hydroxyapatite coating of dental implants is controversial. The long-term fate of hydroxyapatite-coated implants has been the subject of some criticism. PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the clinical outcome of hydroxyapatite-coated cylindrical root-form endosseous Impladent dental implants (LASAK Ltd, Prague, Czech Republic) during a six-year course. METHODS: Three-hundred and ninety-one consecutively placed implants were used in 169 patients and followed for four to six years...

The aim of this epidemiological study was to analyze various clinical and radiographic data on oral health and compare the results to those of three cross-sectional studies carried out in 1973 and 1983, and 1993. In 1973, 1983, 1993, and 2003 a random sample of 1,000; 1,104; 1,078; and 987 individuals, respectively, were studied. The individuals were evenly distributed in the age groups 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 years. In 1973 80-year-olds were not included. All subjects were inhabitants of the City of Jönköping, Sweden...

Innovations in material science and clinical techniques have expanded the number of treatment options available for nonvital anterior teeth. These options include the use of composite to fill the access opening with no additional treatment, crown placement, orthodontic extrusion, crown lengthening with or without orthodontic extrusion, dowel restorations with crown placement, and fixed bridge or implant therapy when extraction is necessary. Clinicians need to understand the benefits and limitations of each option in order to provide their patients with optimum function and aesthetics...

Some of the most disheartening things that can happen to restorative dentists is to be faced with problems, complications, and failures in their own fixed prosthodontics. A highly advantageous technique for removing existing restorations and creating removable cement-retained fixed prosthodontics has been described. In the history of crown and bridge prosthodontics, there has not been a proven precision technique to remove these restorations, with the exception of screw-retained implant prostheses, which exhibit many disadvantages...
