Clinical outcome of removable prostheses supported by mini dental implants. A systematic review
Introduction: For many years, edentulous patients have had no other option than conventional dentures to reestablish their oral function. To avoid the need for bone graft surgery, some professionals have suggested the use ...
Photoelastic Analysis of Biomechanical Behavior of Single and Multiple Fixed Partial Prostheses With Different Prosthetic Connections
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011-11-01)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the stress distribution on external hexagon, internal hexagon, and Morse taper implant in single and 3-unit implant-supported fixed partial prostheses (FPPs) using photoelasticity. Six ...
The use of transitional implants to support provisional prostheses during the healing phase: a literature review
(Quintessence Publishing Co Inc, 2011-01-01)
Objective: Transitional implants are indicated for cases in which immediate loading is counter-indicated because a healing period is necessary for osseointegration of the definitive implants. These provisional implants ...
Mobility, Aesthetic, Implants, and Satisfaction of the Ocular Prostheses Wearers
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010-01-01)
During the process of facial rehabilitation, the mobility of ocular prostheses must be considered. Whereas some factors depend exclusively on the dentist, such as molding techniques and selection of material for denture ...
Esthetics in implant-supported prostheses: a literature review
Esthetics is important for success of implant-supported prostheses. This study aimed to review esthetics concepts for implant treatment. Research in the PubMed database included studies published from 1995 to 2010 with the ...
Does the presence of a cantilever influence the survival and success of partial implant-supported dental prostheses? Systematic review and meta-analysis
Purpose: To investigate if the presence of a cantilever influences the survival and success of partial fixed implant-supported prostheses, through a systematic review and meta-analysis, with additional analysis of the ...
Influence of the Connector and Implant Design on the Implant-Tooth-Connected Prostheses
Purpose:The purpose of this study was to evaluate stress transfer patterns between implant-tooth-connected prostheses comparing rigid and semirigid connectors and internal and external hexagon implants.Materials and ...
Photoelastic Stress Analysis of Different Attachment Systems on Implant-Retained and Conventional Palatal Obturator Prostheses
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011-03-01)
Background: Considering that an increasing number of patients are victims of mutilator surgical resections, these studies are important for treatment success of rehabilitation of patients presenting oronasal communication.Purpose: ...
Photoelastic Analysis of Cemented or Screwed Implant-Supported Prostheses With Different Prostheses Connections
(Allen Press Inc, 2011-08-01)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the stress distribution of different retention systems (screwed or cemented) associated with different prosthetic connections (external hexagon, internal hexagon, and Morse taper) in ...
