Clinical Evaluation of the Mandibular Mini-Implant Overdenture

2014-07-23 21:10:41 | BioPortfolio


Stabilization of existing full lower dentures by means of mini-dental implants (MDI). To test whether 4 mini-implants placed at the front of the lower jaw can stabilize an immediately-modified existing lower denture.


To test whether the percentage of case successes of these lower dentures supported by 4 MDIs is equal to or greater than 95% at 1 year. Success is defined as a denture supported by implants that is functioning in the way it was intended.

A Treatment Protocol for Fractures of the Edentulous Mandible.

The incidence of fractures of edentulous mandibles is relatively low. Knowledge about the management of these fractured edentulous mandibles relies heavily on case reports and observational studies. O...

A Technique for Digital Impression and Bite Registration for a Single Edentulous Arch.

Few studies have reported the application of digital technology for the process of impression and interocclusal recordings in edentulous patients. This article describes a digitizing system for genera...

Determination of the occlusal vertical dimension in edentulous patients using lateral cephalograms.

The determination of the occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) in edentulous patients is based on clinical assessment with high variability. The current study tested the hypothesis: The average OVD in ede...

Double Duplicate Technique for CAD/CAM Full-Arch Immediate Loading: A Technical Description and Case Report.

Full-arch fixed implant-supported prostheses have shown high biologic success rates after long-term follow-up, along with technical and prosthetic complications. Adequate planning is necessary for imm...

Use of the MatrixWAVE™ system with dentures to establish maxillomandibular fixation in edentulous patients.

Various methods have been described to establish maxillomandibular fixation in the treatment of fractures of atrophic, edentulous mandibles. We used the Synthes MatrixWAVE™ system (DePuy Synthes) in...

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.

Absence of teeth from a portion of the mandible and/or maxilla.

Total lack of teeth through disease or extraction.

The use of a treatment material (tissue conditioner) to re-establish tone and health to irritated oral soft tissue, usually applied to the edentulous alveolar ridge.

Procedure of producing an imprint or negative likeness of the teeth and/or edentulous areas. Impressions are made in plastic material which becomes hardened or set while in contact with the tissue. They are later filled with plaster of Paris or artificial stone to produce a facsimile of the oral structures present. Impressions may be made of a full complement of teeth, of areas where some teeth have been removed, or in a mouth from which all teeth have been extracted. (Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
