The Treatment of Implant-retained Mandibular Overdentures for Edentulous Patients

2016-07-28 03:38:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to investigate to what extent IOs improve the functionality of edentulous patients and changes in quality of life and overall patient satisfaction following treatment with IOs.


Edentulous individuals will be selected from patients attending the prosthodontic clinic. Then, new complete dentures will be provided; in a second stage half of these subjects (randomly selected) will receive IOs. The effect of different treatment protocols on chewing ability, patient satisfaction and OHRQoL will be investigated and assessed.

Effects of Low-Profile Stud Attachment Configurations on Stress Distribution Characteristics of Implant-Retained Overdentures.

Implant-retained mandibular overdentures are a proven treatment modality for edentulous patients. Low-profile stud attachments may allow divergence between the abutments up to 40 degrees. The purpose ...

Interventions for replacing missing teeth: attachment systems for implant overdentures in edentulous jaws.

Implant overdentures are one of the most common treatment options used to rehabilitate edentulous patients. Attachment systems are used to anchor the overdentures to implants. The plethora of attachme...

A PhD completed. Maxillary overdentures: with a bar attachment system or locators?

An overdenture on implants is the treatment of choice for patients with complaints about their conventional complete dentures. While a lot is known regarding the performance of implant-supported mandi...

Changes in masticatory performance of edentulous patients treated with single-implant mandibular overdentures and conventional complete dentures.

The aim of this study was to test the effect of a single-implant retained mandibular overdenture (SIMO), compared with conventional denture (CD), on masticatory performance measured by the mixing abil...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The total absence of teeth from either the mandible or the maxilla, but not both. Total absence of teeth from both is MOUTH, EDENTULOUS. Partial absence of teeth in either is JAW, EDENTULOUS, PARTIALLY.

Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.

A placenta that fails to be expelled after BIRTH of the FETUS. A PLACENTA is retained when the UTERUS fails to contract after the delivery of its content, or when the placenta is abnormally attached to the MYOMETRIUM.

Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.

The plan and delineation of DENTAL IMPLANT fitting with DENTAL ABUTMENT.
