Summary of "Do implant-supported fixed partial prostheses improve masticatory performance in patients with unilateral posterior missing teeth?"

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).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
