PURPOSE: The objective of this trial was to compare short-term patient preference for two mandibular complete denture (CD) fabrication techniques: neutral zone (NZ) and conventional (CV). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective, within-subject, randomized crossover trial was performed on a sample of 37 edentulous patients with complete denture experience. Two new sets of CDs were made for each patient, one set with a CV and one with a NZ mandibular denture. After consecutively wearing each set for at least 2 months after the last adjustment visit, patients indicated their preference (CV, NZ, or none)...

The Amelogenesis Imperfecta is associated with malocclusion and usually requires an interdisciplinary treatment. Due to the patient's refusal of orthodontic treatment, prosthodontics-based treatments alternative was considered and planned. The patient was treated with zirconia-based fixed partial dentures, which resulted in improved occlusion, better oral health, and improved esthetic appearance.

INTRODUCTION: Xerostomia is a subjective feeling of dryness commonly seen in elderly populations which impairs the quality of life. Due to loss of lubricating property of saliva the buccal mucosa, tongue and lips tend to stick leading to dry, freckled, ulcerated and sore mucosa which is of major concern to the patient to use complete denture. AIM: The aim of the study was to assess the relation between oral dryness score and denture satisfaction among elderly patients...

Prosthodontic treatment success depends on patients' ability to adapt to an altered oral environment containing removable prostheses. We investigated adaptive chewing-related brain activity changes in response to a new oral environment. Twenty-eight fully dentate subjects (mean age: 28.6 years) wore experimental denture-base palatal plates (3-mm thick), for 7 days. We measured food mixing ability and cycle time, and assessed brain activity by functional magnetic resonance imaging during chewing at pre-insertion (Day 0), and immediately (Day 1), 3 days (Day 3), and 7 days (Day 7) after insertion...

Since February 2010, intraoral scanning (Lava COS system, 3M ESPE, Seefeld, Germany) has been integrated into the preclinical curriculum at the Department of Prosthodontics of the Justus Liebig University. All students were given a lecture and were trained using a guided scan exercise. After preparing three teeth (mandibular first premolars and mandibular first molar in the 4th quadrant) for cast crowns, the students were asked to scan the maxillary and mandibular teeth. Their acceptance of the new module, "Scanning," was analyzed with the use of a questionnaire (n = 108)...

Crowns, fixed partial dentures, and removable dentures are the popular prosthetic dental restorations in current dental practice. Prosthodontic rehabilitation of the mouth, particularly in advanced and complex cases, requires careful planning, adequate clinical skills, and exacting technical standards. While a successful outcome is the ultimate goal for any prosthodontic treatment, complications, injuries, dissatisfaction, and/or failure may occur. When such events develop as a result of negligence or violation of standards of care, they are considered under the term of malpractice and may incur ethical and medico-legal implications...

INTRODUCTION: Despite the falling number of edentulous patients within the UK, there is still a large demand for the provision of removable prostheses. On qualification, dentists should have the knowledge and skills to provide these prostheses, but previous studies have shown that final-year dental undergraduate confidence in treating denture patients is lacking. AIM: To explore undergraduate dental student confidence whilst carrying out prosthodontic treatment, and to explore their perceptions of the quality of their prosthodontic education...

After tooth loss, an individual may seek tooth replacement so that his/her function and esthetics could be restored. Clinical prosthodontics, during the past decade, has significantly improved and developed according to the advancements in the science and patient's demands and needs. Conventional options in prosthodontics for substituting a missing single tooth include the removable partial denture, partial and full coverage bridgework, and resin-bonded bridgework. Dental implants have gained increasing popularity over the years as they are capable of restoring the function to near normal in both partial and completely edentulous arches...

Centric occlusion (CO) and centric relation (CR) have been controversial topics in dentistry for almost 100 years. The concept of CR emerged due to the search for a reproducible mandibular position that would enable the prosthodontic rehabilitation of patients needing denture treatment. The following case study is unique because of 2 questions. Which mandibular treatment splint position (CR or CO) was appropriate for the initial and eventual final treatment of this patient for her temporomandibular disorder/myofascial pain and dysfunction? Also, how might the mandibular position of CR and CO affect the size and shape of the airway? The airway's size and shape is important as it relates to sleep-disordered breathing and potentially leading to obstructive sleep apnea later in life...

After major disasters such as earthquakes, fires, floods, tsunami, bomb blasts or terrorist attacks, accurate, and early identification of the dead and injured becomes an utmost importance. Restorations, cariesteeth, missingteeth and/or prostheses are most useful aids for the dental identification. At times, only identifiable remains are a victim's partial or complete dentures. The central principle of dental identification is that postmortem dental remains can be compared with antemortem dental records which include, studycasts, radiographs, etc...
