PURPOSE: Conventional removable dentures still play an important role in the treatment of lost teeth. A thorough understanding of the parameters that influence patient satisfaction is useful for deciding whether denture replacement is meaningful. From a clinical perspective, factors that can be measured before starting treatment are relevant. This pilot study investigated whether patient satisfaction after denture renewal was affected by aspects related to the old prostheses, type of jaw, and patient motivation for denture renewal...

When the patient cannot be rehabilitated with a fixed denture, or when he does not succeed in adapting to a traditional removable denture, a possible alternative solution consists in the use of a limited number of implants, placed in strategic positions in the arches of the patient, and subsequently connected to their residual teeth. The aim of this review is to evaluate the progress made on connections between teeth and implants in removable denture, to analyze their advantages and disadvantages and to compare the survival rate, both of the teeth and of the implants used as abutments, present in the various studies taken into examination, with the aim of being able to evaluate the effectiveness of this rehabilitative option...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Various materials are available to secure implant attachment housings in overdentures. Surface roughness and the adaptation of these materials to the denture base and the housings may increase the microcracks and bacterial adhesion at the interfaces in the long term. The surface characteristics of the interface between the denture base orientation material and the attachment housing have not been extensively studied. PURPOSE: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the surface roughness and the adaptation of 5 different housing orientation materials to the housings and the denture base...

Edentulous mandible frequently undergoes severe bone atrophy with problems of prosthetic instability. Instability of the lower denture may cause difficulties with eating and speech, ulcerations of the oral mucosa for lower denture trauma, loss of facial vertical dimension. These problems may be solved by bone augmentation of severe resorption of edentulous mandible. The aim of this short review is to describe surgical techniques for bone augmentation of the severe resorption of edentulous mandible. In this paper, we define a severe resorption of edentulous mandible as a mandibular height in the symphyseal area of 12 mm or less as measured on a standardized lateral cephalogram...

Cast Partial Dentures (CPD) has long been known to restore missing teeth in patients with minimal invasion on hard and soft tissues. Although satisfactory otherwise, the main concern in CPD is the anterior display of metal. Also the technique sensitive lab procedures, together with the esthetic concern have built an iceberg around the frequent utilization of this treatment modality. With the advent of various techniques to get rid of the metallic display, it was predicted to have more CPD's done in the dental arena...
