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 fixed partial prosthesis (ISFPP).

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...
To compare the masticatory efficiency (ME), maximum voluntary bite force (MBF), masseter muscle thickness (MMT) and salivary flow rates (SFR) in completely edentulous dependent elders treated either w...
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.
Screw-retained fixed partial dentures (FPD) have shown a lower incidence of biologic complications and an easier retrievability compared with cemented FPD.
To compare the load-bearing capacity after long-term use (5-year simulation) of posterior three-unit implant-supported fixed partial dentures (FPDs) fabricated with different esthetic materials.
The objective of this prospective clinical study is to investigate the differences in the complication rates between tooth- and implant- supported zirconia based fixed dental prostheses (F...
Distal extension Partial Removable Dental Prostheses (PRDPs) are less stable than tooth supported PRDPs due to progressive resorption of the alveolar ridge, which alters the retention and ...
3 groups of immediately Loaded implant-supported overdenture patients will be evaluated (overdentures supported by two standard-sized implant, overdentures supported by 4 mini implant d: 3...
Cement retention has been widely used for implant-supported fixed partial dentures in daily dental practice. The cementation approach indeed offers straightforward clinical application pro...
A multicenter prospective observational study in which aim is to illustrate the clinical outcome of dental implants "Kontact N"; and the effects of its nanostructured surface on the osseoi...
A partial denture attached to prepared natural teeth, roots, or implants by cementation.
Selective grinding of occlusal surfaces of the teeth in an effort to eliminate premature contacts and occlusal interferences; to establish optimal masticatory effectiveness, stable occlusal relationships, direction of main occlusal forces, and efficient multidirectional patterns, to improve functional relations and to induce physiologic stimulation of the masticatory system; to eliminate occlusal trauma; to eliminate abnormal muscle tension; to aid in the stabilization of orthodontic results; to treat periodontal and temporomandibular joint problems; and in restorative procedures. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
Region of interaction between the bone and PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS which becomes bonded through cellular and extracellular interactions similar to OSSEOINTEGRATION.
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)
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
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...
