Aim As more and more dental practitioners are focusing on implant-supported fixed restorations, some clinicians favor the use of cement retained restorations while others consider screw retained prosthesis to be the best choice. Discussion In screw-retained restorations, the fastening screw provides a solid joint between the restoration and the implant abutment, while in cement-retained prostheses the restorative screw is eliminated to enhance esthetics, occlusal stability, and passive fit of the restorations. The factors that influence the type of fixation of the prostheses to the implants like passivity of the framework, ease of fabrication, occlusion, esthetics, accessibility, retention and retrievability are discussed in this article with scientific studies demonstrating superior outcomes of one technique over another. Screwretained implant restorations have an advantage of predictable retention, retrievability and lack of potentially retained subgingival cement. However, a few disadvantages ...

The MALO CLINIC study concludes that, full-arch hybrid PEEK-acrylic resin implant-supported prostheses may be a valid treatment option. Its validity in implant dentistry can be fully attested after a longer follow-up.. JUVORA, PEEK-based dental disc enables presision and efficiency. The MALO CLINICs protocol was to produce a screw-retained framework manufactured from a JUVORA dental disc, following CAD/CAM processing to adapt it to multiunit abutments. "JUVORA prosthetics offer dental clinicians numerous advantages," commented John Devine, Medical Business Director at Invibio Biomaterial Solutions. "Using the potential of CAD/CAM milling for example now enables PEEK-based solutions to be milled precisely and efficiently potentially offering a new level of precision and efficiency in both design and implementation. Helping to improve clinical outcomes with PEEK is Invibios goal, and were very excited to see the MALO CLINIC clinical results at this time point. Using PEEK in their All-on-4 ...

Screw-Retained Hybrid ( metal and acrylic) Dentures are proven replacements for removable prostheses worn by edentulous or partially edentulous patients. A custom acrylic framework is fabricated on your master model work. The metal framework is designed properly with the individual implant platforms being used in the case which are then the data is transferred to the CADCAM technician where the one-piece bar framework is finalized. After design, the bar is fabricated for an exact fit of the oral environment its being fitted for then sent to the practice for verification of fit on the implants. When verified its returned to the lab where the bar is incorporated into the acrylic processing of the denture tooth setup ...
Patients with hopeless dentition often present difficulties in the management of the transitional phase to the final restoration. This article describes a staged approach to achieve a full-arch, implant-supported, removable prosthesis in patients with a hopeless dentition. The approach described allows the clinician to proceed in a staged manner and facilitate prosthetic steps by keeping fixed references for vertical dimension. This technique includes initial conservative periodontal care and, afterward, extraction of some strategic teeth, while others are temporarily maintained. At this point, the implants are positioned, and during the healing period, the remaining natural abutments are used for occlusal reference and to stabilize the removable provisional prosthesis. After osseointegration of the implants, the residual teeth are extracted and the final prosthesis is delivered. The main advantages of the technique include maintenance of function during treatment, stabilization of the removable ...

Founded on the same principles as the Novum Protocol, the Columbus Bridge Protocol provides for the realization of a full-arch, screw-retained, functionally loaded provisional prosthesis within 24 to 48 hours after implant surgery in the maxilla. The authors detail the biologic principles on which the protocol is based as well as the experimental studies that led to its use. In addition, every aspect of treatment is addressed, including diagnostic procedures, choice of implant and abutment types, data transfer to the laboratory, laboratory procedures, surgical procedures, choice of restorative materials, delivery of the provisional and definitive prostheses, complication management, and instructions for hygiene and follow-up care. Two cases of full-arch treatment, one with and one without replacement of soft tissues, are presented in the text, and an accompanying DVD also presents a complete clinical case.. 422 pp; 700 illus; (mostly color);.

contouring and unusual substructure designs for overdenture patients with the possible need for angled abutments and/or placement of the connecting bar buccally to the abutment. Zygomatic implants can be useful where there is extensive pneumatization of the maxillary sinuses (Jivraj, Chee, and Corrado, 2006).. A broadly distributed implant-supported design across the anterior premolar region and tuberosities produces better stress transfer to the underlying bone than a dense number of implants in the anterior region supporting a cantilever. Bars with distal cantilevers can increase the forces on the terminal implants by more than 3 times. Unsplinted anchorage systems may need less space within the prosthesis, facilitate hygiene, be more cost-effective, less technique sensitive, and easier to manage than splinted designs. There is no significant difference in mean bone loss between subjects with ball- or bar-retained overdentures.. At least 13.0 mm-14.0mm is needed from the implant platform to ...
What is an implant overdenture?. An implant overdenture fits over a dental implant with various types of attachments that provide you with excellent stability and retention of your complete dentures. The implant overdenture is a full denture used to replace the teeth in a full-arch where all the teeth are missing. In essence, it is a larger version of the implant assisted removable partial denture (IRPD). The denture can "snap" into place to afford you more comfort, and improved chewing ability. Implant overdentures are held in place by various dental attachments selected by your restorative doctor to provide maximum retention, and increased chewing ability. The implant overdenture is removable to facilitate cleaning of the implant supporting structure. Implant overdentures can be made to look extremely natural and feel comfortable.. Pre-surgical prosthodontic planning for implant overdenturesbegins with diagnostic impressions for recording jaw relation and diagnosing possible dentures. These ...
Edentulous maxillary fixed rehabilitation using dental implants is challenging and requires meticulous planning because of anatomic variations and the importance of facial and dental esthetics. This article reviews the application of facial esthetics
PMID: 8957878 This study investigated the occlusal stress distribution to the implant and soft tissue for the implant-retained overdenture. The stress at the molar residual ridge and the strain around the implant were measured on an experimental resin cast using static and dynamic loading. The influence of connecting structures of stud attachments on stress distribution was discussed. The occlusal stress had a tendency to concentrate on the implant, especially in the areas distal to the implant. The modified magnetic attachment system, using a silicone-covered magnet, provided the optimal stress distribution ...

Implant-supported single crowns have become a valid alternative to conventional fixed dental prostheses due to their excellent clinical long-term results. However, along with good survival rates, esthetic factors are important for success in anterior regions. Today, several kinds of implant abutments are offered by implant manufacturers. A choice must be made between standardized and customized abutments; further, different abutment materials such as titanium or various ceramics (alumina, zirconia) are available. Finally, the reconstruction can be cemented on the abutment or screw-retained directly on the implant. When choosing an abutment for an anterior single-unit case, several factors should be considered: visibility of the region (eg, high vs low smile line); biotype of the gingiva; color of the neighboring teeth; and finally, esthetic expectations of the patient. In esthetically demanding situations, customized ceramic abutments are indicated. In patient situations with thin peri-implant ...

Materials and methods: Thirty-two edentulous patients had one of their dental arches rehabilitated with a provisional screw-retained resin reinforced cross-arch fixed prosthesis supported by four immediately loaded implants. The two central straight implants were randomly allocated in two equal groups, according to a parallel-group design, to receive or not intermediate abutments (Multi-Unit Abutment, MUA). However, for the purpose of the present publication, the study was considered as a prospective single cohort study. To be immediately loaded, implants had to be inserted with a minimum torque of 30 Ncm, which was achieved by all implants. Provisional prostheses were delivered within 24 hours and were replaced, after 4 months, by definitive screw-retained metal-ceramic prostheses. Patients were followed up to 5 years after loading. Prostheses were removed every 8 months to facilitate professionally delivered maintenance. Outcome measures were prosthesis and implant failures, complications, ...

Conclusions are based on few small trials, with short follow-up, and judged to be at high risk of bias. Therefore conclusions should be viewed as preliminary and interpreted with great caution. It is still unclear when sinus lift procedures are needed. 5 mm short implants can be successfully loaded in maxillary bone with a residual height of 4 to 6 mm but their long-term prognosis is unknown. Elevating the sinus lining in presence of 1 to 5 mm of residual bone height without the addition of a bone graft may be sufficient to regenerate new bone to allow rehabilitation with implant-supported prostheses. Bone substitutes might be successfully used as replacements for autogenous bone. If the residual alveolar bone height is 3 to 6 mm a crestal approach to lift the sinus lining, to place 8 mm implants may lead to fewer complications than a lateral window approach, to place implants at least 10 mm long. There is no evidence that PRP treatment improves the clinical outcome of sinus lift procedures with ...

This two-part case presentation describes the prosthetic challenge of managing complications in a 50-yearold female patient after inadequate esthetic risk assessment, treatment planning, and implant placement in the anterior maxilla. In Part I, the clinical situation was described, and different restorative solutions were proposed to correct the extreme facial inclination of the implants, excluding major surgical procedures, namely implant removal. In Part II, different prosthetic options are discussed, and the final treatment is revealed. A noninvasive treatment protocol was applied to transform a severely compromised postsurgical situation into an esthetically acceptable result. An unconventional prosthesis design was implemented, including the use of ceramic veneers bonded to the CAD/ CAM -generated screw-retained zirconia- based fixed dental prosthesis (FDP), to correct major axis-related problems and spatial discrepancies ...

Success rates for titanium dental implants in the anterior mandible are very high. Because of these success rates, as well as lower costs, it is common to treat edentulous patients with just 2 implants and ball anchors for retention of the overdenture, instead of 4 implants and a bar. In this paper the fabrication of 2-implant overdentures is described. In a controlled clinical trial (to be reported elsewhere), 30 subjects received a 2-implant overdenture for the mandible and a conventional prosthesis for the maxilla. The 30 control patients received conventional complete dentures for both jaws ...
*******www.oracaredentalcentre****/ A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. There are several types of dental implants. The major classifications are divided into osseointegrated implant and the fibrointegrated implant. Earlier implants, such as the subperiosteal implant and the blade implant were usually fibrointegrated [1], [2]. The most widely accepted and successful implant today is the osseointegrated implant, based on the discovery by Swedish Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark that titanium can be successfully fused into bone when osteoblasts grow on and into the rough surface of the implanted titanium [3]. This forms a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant-supported denture.

Introduction. The mechanical stability of implant-supported fixed restorations may be considered to improve long-term stability and minimize complications1. The stability of the connection between different implant parts is important for the success of the rehabilitation, especially for single tooth restorations. Loosening of abutment screws, mainly with the external hex implants, has been a technical problem that occurs in the first two years of use2. The stability of the external implant-abutment connection has been improved by altering the screw alloys and their surfaces and applying proper torque values to establish higher initial preloads3-5 . A systematic review compared the complications of screw-retained prosthesis showing that the most frequent complication was related to abutment screw loosening (10-55.5%). The incidence of abutment screw loosening was 4.3% in short-term studies and 10% in long-term studies1 . Mechanical factors, such as the implant-abutment fit and the abutment screw ...

The excess cement not removed following the cementation of fixed implant-supported restorations may cause loss of peri-implant attachment or adjacent bone. The aims of this study were to evaluate the amount of residual cement at different abutment-crown connection levels and to test the cleaning efficacy of poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) ultrasonic tips after cementation. One implant was placed in an anterior central tooth position 5 mm below the gingival margin in an acrylic model, and 32 stone models were obtained with implant analogs. Abutment heights of 1-2 mm and 2.5-4 mm were used on the vestibular and lingual sides, respectively. Crowns were cemented and cleaned, and half of the samples were cleaned again using PEEK tips. The abutment-crown suprastructure was then disconnected, and cleaning efficacy was evaluated. Varying amounts of excess cement were found on all specimens except for the PEEK group with abutment-crown connections 1 mm below the gingival margin. An increase of undetected ...

The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the treatment outcome of six Bredent blueSky™ implants (Bredent GmbH, Senden, Germany) immediately loaded with a fixed full-arch prosthesis (two tilted posterior and four axial frontal and premolar implants). All 10 patients with atrophic edentulous maxillae being treated with a standardized procedure from 09/2009 to 01/2013, who had a follow-up of at least 3 years, were included. Sixty implants were placed to support 10 screwed prostheses. Twenty-one of them were inserted in fresh extraction sockets. Lab-side-prepared provisional fixed prostheses were placed at the day of implantation. Periotest (PT) values and implant stability quotient (ISQ) were measured after implant surgery and after 3 months of healing in all patients. The analyzed implants were in function in mean 64 ± 13 months (range 42 to 84 months). One axial and two tilted implants failed in three patients. The mean PT values decreased, and ISQ increased significantly after the first 3
Prosthodontics is the art and science of the design, fabrication and insertion of artificial substitutes to replace the lost or congenitally missing teeth and contagious oral and maxillofacial tissues. Extensive training provides students with a special understanding of the dynamics of occlusion, facial aesthetics and preservation of healthy oral environment. Prosthodontics has evolved and established into several specialisations, which cater to different conditions in the patients oral environment. Removable complete denture and partial denture prosthodontics were the common modalities of rehabilitating completely and partially edentulous conditions. Advanced prosthodontics offers fixed solutions through crowns and bridges, wherein the support of remaining natural teeth are used to replace lost teeth. Implant prosthodontics goes a step further and replaces lost teeth using the support of implants which are directly placed into the bone. Implant-supported prosthesis offers sensible and prudent ...
The impaction of dental prostheses in either the airway or esophagus is an under-recognized problem which may result in severe morbidity or even mortality. The radio-opacity and the size of fixed and removable dental prostheses in an animal carcass was investigated. Prostheses were placed one at a time in the oro-laryngopharynx or in tho trachea and the esophagus. Lateral radiographs were taken for each prosthesis in site. The radio-opacity and size of the prostheses on the radiograph was graded. Most of the prostheses investigated were radio-opaque though the removable prostheses were more likely to be radiolucent and differ in size. In a symptomatic patient with a missing dental prosthesis, a negative chest or abdominal radiograph does not exclude impaction, inhalation or ingestion. Further evaluation with endoscopy or even computed tomography may be essential to reduce the possibility of severe morbidity or even mortality.. ...
... (MDIs) have changed the face of implant placement. Unlike full implant placement where multiple dental visits are required, MDIs eliminate the need for surgery. The development of long term MDIs now allows the dentist to place anchors in the jaw during one non-invasive treatment. The most common use for MDIs is the stabilization of dentures and overdentures. MDIs firmly anchor the dental prosthesis, which means there is no longer any need to suffer with ill-fitting, loose dentures.. MDIs are designed to eliminate bone grafting and expedite treatment. Full implants require significant bone grafting and a recovery period. The latent period allowed the anchor of the implant to properly embed itself into the jawbone. The smaller size of MDIs means that no recovery period is necessary, and the denture can be fitted the same day.. What is the configuration of mini dental implants?. An MDI is a tiny dental implant (similar to a screw) that is designed to act in place of a natural ...
