The use of onplants and implants in children with severe oligodontia: a retrospective evaluation.
Summary of "The use of onplants and implants in children with severe oligodontia: a retrospective evaluation."
Objective: To evaluate a stable treatment concept for the oral rehabilitation of children with severe oligodontia. The treatment is intended to solve a specific problem caused by limited skeletal growth, multiple congenital missing teeth, underdeveloped bone volume and young age. Material and methods: A surgical/prosthodontic approach was chosen for six patients with subtotal edentulism despite their young age. To support removable dentures the maxilla was treated with onplants (OnPlant(®) ), whereas dental rootform implants (NobelReplace(®) , Nobel Biocare) were placed in the mandible. Results: Eight onplants were placed in the hard palate of four patients for rehabilitating the maxilla and eight dental rootform implants were placed interforaminally in three patients to rehabilitate the mandible. While none of the rootform implants was lost, one onplant was lost and replaced with a stable outcome. The mean follow-up time of the onplants was 5 (±1) years vs. 3 (±2) years for the rootform implants. Conclusion: The evaluation showed the treatment concept described to ensure stable oral rehabilitation and recovery of the stomatognathic system even during the juvenile growth period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Auditory Brain Stem Implants
Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
Evaluation Studies As Topic
Studies determining the effectiveness or value of processes, personnel, and equipment, or the material on conducting such studies. For drugs and devices, CLINICAL TRIALS AS TOPIC; DRUG EVALUATION; and DRUG EVALUATION, PRECLINICAL are available.
Implants constructed of materials designed to be absorbed by the body without producing an immune response. They are usually composed of plastics and are frequently used in orthopedics and orthodontics.
A severe gangrenous process occurring predominantly in debilitated and malnourished children, especially in underdeveloped countries. It typically begins as a small vesicle or ulcer on the gingiva that rapidly becomes necrotic and spreads to produce extensive destruction of the buccal and labial mucosa and tissues of the face, which may result in severe disfigurement and even death. Various bacteria have been implicated in the etiology. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Prostheses And Implants
Artificial substitutes for body parts, and materials inserted into tissue for functional, cosmetic, or therapeutic purposes. Prostheses can be functional, as in the case of artificial arms and legs, or cosmetic, as in the case of an artificial eye. Implants, all surgically inserted or grafted into the body, tend to be used therapeutically. IMPLANTS, EXPERIMENTAL is available for those used experimentally.
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of immediate loading (IL) and delayed loading (DL) on peri-implant crestal bone loss around maxillary implants after long-term functioning. Ma...
This study investigated factors that affect the development of positive peer relationships among deaf children with cochlear implants. Ten 5- to 6-year-old deaf children with implants were observed un...
OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to assess short, sintered porous-surfaced (SPS), press-fit implants with mandibular overdentures to restore edentulous patients with severe mandibular resorption....
OBJECTIVE: To describe the burden, clinical characteristics and prognostic factors of severe malnutrition in children under the age of 5 years. DESIGN: Retrospective study of hospital-based data syste...
OBJECTIVE:: The objective of this investigation was to describe the language growth of children with severe or profound hearing loss with cochlear implants versus those children with the same degree o...
The purpose is to test the balance of children with unilateral,bilateral cochlear implants and patients having unilateral implants before,bilateral implants after surgery,using the Bruinin...
The study is conducted to analyse the infection rate in children treated with VEPTR-Implants for severe spine or thoracic deformities.
Evaluation of the success rate of immediately loaded implants based on: - condition of the gingiva - stability of the implants - evaluation of the RXs - questio...
