Diagnostic provisional restorations in restorative dentistry: the blueprint for success. (1/103)

There is no question that patients today demand a sophisticated level of restorative dentistry, in terms of both esthetics and function. No elective restorative dentistry should be undertaken without a clear understanding of the patient's expectations and the limitations of restorative therapy. The dentist should have a clear picture in mind of the final results before initiating irreversible therapy. The use of mounted diagnostic casts, diagnostic wax-ups and provisional restorations permits patient acceptance to be obtained before the definitive phase is initiated. Too often the dentist does not take advantage of this important restorative option, with disastrous results when definitive restorations are viewed by the patient for the first time. By following the plan of treatment outlined in this article, such disasters can be avoided.  (+info)

Single-tooth replacement: bridge vs. implant-supported restoration. (2/103)

Options for restoring a single tooth include fixed partial denture, resin-bonded restoration and single-tooth implant. In this paper, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these methods and factors that must be considered when choosing between them for the replacement of a single tooth. Although in some cases a fixed partial denture is the most appropriate choice, implants have the advantage of allowing preservation of the integrity of sound teeth adjacent to the edentulous area.  (+info)

The congenitally missing upper lateral incisor. A retrospective study of orthodontic space closure versus restorative treatment. (3/103)

Orthodontic treatment for patients with uni- or bilateral congenitally missing lateral incisors is a challenge to effective treatment planning. The two major alternatives, orthodontic space closure or space opening for prosthetic replacements, can both compromise aesthetics, periodontal health, and function. The aim of this retrospective study was to examine treated patients who had congenitally missing lateral incisors and to compare their opinion of the aesthetic result with the dentists' opinions of occlusal function and periodontal health. In this sample, 50 patients were identified. Thirty had been treated with orthodontic space closure, and 20 by space opening and a prosthesis (porcelain bonded to gold and resin bonded bridges). The patient's opinion of the aesthetic result was evaluated using the Eastman Esthetic Index questionnaire and during a structured interview. The functional status, dental contact patterns, periodontal condition, and quality of the prosthetic replacement was evaluated. In general, subjects treated with orthodontic space closure were more satisfied with the appearance of their teeth than those who had a prosthesis. No significant differences in the prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) were found. However, patients with prosthetic replacements had impaired periodontal health with accumulation of plaque and gingivitis. The conclusion of this study is that orthodontic space closure produces results that are well accepted by patients, does not impair temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function, and encourages periodontal health in comparison with prosthetic replacements.  (+info)

The use of resin cements in restorative dentistry to overcome retention problems. (5/103)

The use of resin cements in combination with dentin bonding agents can result in superior attachment of prostheses to tooth structure. This paper describes four clinical cases in which dentin-bonded resin cements were used to overcome retention problems. In the first case, a detached fixed partial denture, which was in good condition when separated, was recemented to abutment teeth prepared with less-than-ideal angle of convergence. In the second case, a detached all-porcelain crown was recemented with a dentin-bonded resin cement after appropriate surface treatment. In the third case, a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown made for a molar tooth was cemented to a short clinical crown, avoiding crown-lengthening surgery. In the fourth case, a 3-unit fixed partial denture was recemented to abutments with less-than-ideal supporting features. Dentin-bonded resin cements can help to extend the life of detached prostheses until the patient is financially prepared for replacement or it can help to avoid crown-lengthening surgery.  (+info)

Changing paradigms in implant dentistry. (6/103)

This review focuses on five paradigms of implant dentistry which have undergone considerable modifications in recent years. An attempt was made to select and include all the relevant citations of the past 10 years. These five paradigms document the debate in the clinical and scientific community and include the aspects of (1) smooth vs. rough implant surfaces, (2) submerged vs. non-submerged implant installation techniques, (3) mixed tooth-implant vs. solely implant-supported reconstructions, (4) morse-taper abutment fixation vs. butt-joint interfaces, and (5) titanium abutments vs. esthetic abutments in clinical situations where esthetics is of primary concern.  (+info)

Occlusal stability in implant prosthodontics -- clinical factors to consider before implant placement. (7/103)

The success of any prosthetic design depends on proper management of the occlusion. The clinical variables influencing occlusal stability must be determined and considered in the design of the final prosthesis. This paper outlines some of these variables.  (+info)

A multi-centre study of Osseotite implants supporting mandibular restorations: a 3-year report. (8/103)

This multi-centre study evaluated the performance of the Osseotite implant in the mandibular arch. Osseotite implants (n = 688) were placed in 172 patients; 43.5% were placed in the anterior mandible and 66.5% in the posterior mandible. Fifteen per cent of the implants were placed in soft bone, 56.9% in normal bone and 28.1% in dense bone. During placement, 49.9% of the implants were identified as having a tight fit, 48.6% a firm fit and 1.5% a loose fit. About one-third of the implants (32.4%) were short (10 mm in length or less). After 36 months, only 5 implants had been lost, for a cumulative survival rate of 99.3%. The 3-year results of this study indicate a high degree of predictability with placement of Osseotite implants in the mandibular arch.  (+info)

A dental bridge is a type of partial denture, a solid restorative structure that bridges a gap between two teeth. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants and are an excellent way to replace missing teeth. They can be either permanently attached or are removable.. Fixed bridges do not come out. They are not removable, although they may need to be re-cemented or replaced. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth, or by resin bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. They help preserve facial shape, restore chewing and smiling, and prevent the neighboring teeth from drifting.. A removable bridge (removable partial denture) is made of artificial teeth with small precision attachments on either side that anchor them to the neighboring teeth. Removable bridges are easier to clean than the fixed bridges, but slightly less retentive.. ...

It is not possible to repair the ceramic which has chipped from bridge, but still you can discuss this with your dentist who has put this. It is better you go for full ceramic bridges as they are more comfortable and aesthetic looking. Normally when such sort of chip is there in PFM bridge, then you have to go for change of bridge and pay for it as it can be only repaired in the lab and that is possible if the whole bridge comes out as such and this is very difficult and generally the bridge has to be sectioned for removal. for more info on types of bridges you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-crowns-bridges-22.aspx. ...

Lakes Dentistry offers beautiful, custom-made crown and bridgework to replace you missing teeth and restore your bright, confident smile.
Fixed Bridges: A bridge is designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It is typically made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, with false teeth in between. Once the teeth are prepared for the crowns, the bridge is cemented on. Your dentist may have you come back a few times to ensure that the bridge and its framework fit you properly. After the necessary adjustments, the bridge is permanently cemented. With proper hygiene, a fixed bridge can last over 10 years. Bridges are beneficial because not only do they restore your teeth and smile, but they maintain the shape of your face, allow you to chew and speak as you normally would, and they prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of position ...
Many dentists preferred to have a fixed bridge in the absence of one tooth as much as the days. But this method requires the cutting of healthy neighboring teeth. Sensitive and nerve damage may develop as the enamel part of the tooth protecting layer is damaged during cutting. As it is under porcelain over time, bruises and gum problems can be seen in the cut teeth that have difficulties in cleaning. At certain times on the bridge, porcelains will have problems such as cracking and breaking, and the bridge will need to be removed and replaced. At these stages, various damage can occur in the base teeth, too. Studies show that within five to seven years there is a loss rate of up to 30% in teeth adjacent to fixed bridges or mobile prostheses. As a result, cutting healthy teeth can cause problems in these teeth over time ...

An implant supported bridge (or fixed denture) is a group of teeth secured to dental implants so the prosthetic cannot be removed by the user. Bridges typically connect to more than one implant and may also connect to teeth as anchor points. Typically the number of teeth will outnumber the anchor points with the teeth that are directly over the implants referred to as abutments and those between abutments referred to as pontics. Implant supported bridges attach to implant abutments in the same way as a single tooth implant replacement. A fixed bridge may replace as few as two teeth (also known as a fixed partial denture) and may extend to replace an entire arch of teeth (also known as a fixed full denture). In both cases, the prosthesis is said to be fixed because it cannot be removed by the denture wearer.. ...
If a tooth is missing most or all of its visible part, but still has healthy roots, it can often be restored with a crown (sometimes called a cap). Custom-fabricated in a dental laboratory, crowns can be made of gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all-ceramic (porcelain). Crown restorations, which are permanently attached to the tooths roots, are often needed following certain dental procedures, such as root canals.. A fixed bridge is used to replace one or more teeth that are completely missing. It is a single unit consisting of one (or more) crowns on either end, plus one or more artificial (prosthetic) teeth in the middle. The crowns are placed on the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap, and the prosthetic teeth in between substitute for your missing teeth. When properly placed, bridgework looks natural and is relatively permanent. However, some healthy tooth structure must be removed from the teeth that are crowned; this increases the risk that they could develop tooth decay, gum problems or ...
