To study the performance of 2 to 3 posterior bone-level dental implants constructed with either 3 non-splinted crowns (NSC), 3 splinted crowns (SC), or a 3-unit fixed partial denture supported by 2 implants (FPD) MATERIAL AND
Patients treated with 3 metal-ceramic NSC, SC or a 3-unit FPD were included in the present retrospective study. Implant survival and success rate as well as all biological and technical complications were collected. The cost associated with each of the treatment options was evaluated in the comparative analysis.

Name: Clinical oral implants research
Modal analysis has been used to monitor and quantify the vibration of each component of a prosthesis at its natural frequency. An understanding of the vibrational characteristics of a prosthesis can g...
The purpose of this study was to determine the improvement in masticatory performance and satisfaction with chewing ability in partially edentulous patients after treatment with an implant-supported f...
This study uses intentionally tilted implants with a moderate insertion torque to retain an immediately loaded fixed full-arch implant-retained prosthesis using four implants. The aims of this study w...
Screw-retained fixed partial dentures (FPD) have shown a lower incidence of biologic complications and an easier retrievability compared with cemented FPD.
To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of a novel concept of early loaded (ie, within 2 weeks) implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (ISFDP) for patients who underwent mandibular reconstruction.
The goal of this scientific study is to determine whether there are differences in early migration and prosthesis-near bone density when a standard knee prosthesis is fixed with Refobacin ...
In this study we are going to evaluate patient satisfaction as well as the amount of bone loss on using single implant retained partial over-denture versus conventional partial denture for...
Comparison of conventional UHMWPE (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) with X3 highly cross-linked polyethylene in a CS (condylar stabilizing) fixed bearing total knee prosthesis by ...
The purpose of this trial is to study potential differences between two prostheses, including: "feel of prosthesis" (i.e., how natural does the prosthesis feel), range of motion (ROM), pai...
The trial is designed as a consecutive enrollment prospective one-center study. A minimum of 30 patients will be included in the study. At implant installation, the patient will be randomi...
Natural teeth or teeth roots used as anchorage for a fixed or removable denture or other prosthesis (such as an implant) serving the same purpose.
A prosthesis that gains its support, stability, and retention from a substructure that is implanted under the soft tissues of the basal seat of the device and is in contact with bone. (From Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed)
The selected form given to a natural tooth when it is reduced by instrumentation to receive a prosthesis (e.g., artificial crown or a retainer for a fixed or removable prosthesis). The selection of the form is guided by clinical circumstances and physical properties of the materials that make up the prosthesis. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p239)
A commonly used prosthesis that results in a strong, permanent restoration. It consists of an electrolytically etched cast-metal retainer that is cemented (bonded), using resins, to adjacent teeth whose enamel was previously acid-treated (acid-etched). This type of bridgework is sometimes referred to as a Maryland bridge.
A partial denture attached to prepared natural teeth, roots, or implants by cementation.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
