  • angular
  • The universal connector is also adapted to facilitate preselected or adjustable universal angular alignment between the first and second axes, that angular relationship then securably lockable to enable the dental prosthesis to be thereafter securely mounted over the prosthesis insert. (google.com)
  • 4. The introducer of claim 2 further comprising a second control arrangement to control a length, an axial position and an angular position of said prosthesis proximal portion at a desired site in a body vessel lumen by selective movement of the third control member. (google.es)
  • bone
  • TiN is non-toxic, meets FDA guidelines and has seen use in medical devices such as scalpel blades and orthopedic bone saw blades where sharpness and edge retention are important. (wikipedia.org)
  • fabrication
  • Because a mechanically displaced soft palate imparts enough force upon a palatal lift prosthesis to dislodge it, dentoalveolar anatomy must be considered prior to the fabrication of a palatal lift prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)

  • types
  • There are several types of erectile prostheses, including malleable rod-like medical devices that allow the neo-penis to either stand up or hang down. (wikipedia.org)
  • speech
  • A palatal lift prosthesis addresses palatopharyngeal incompetence by physically displacing the dysfunctional soft palate in the hope of closing the palatopharyngeal port enough to mitigate hypernasal speech and/or prevent nasopharyngeal regurgitation of liquids or solids during the pharyngeal phase of swallowing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Such prostheses are used to rehabilitate mastication (chewing), improve aesthetics, and aid speech. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • A well-known use for TiN coating is for edge retention and corrosion resistance on machine tooling, such as drill bits and milling cutters, often improving their lifetime by a factor of three or more. (wikipedia.org)
  • component
  • A palatal lift prosthesis consists of an oral component that stabilizes and secures the prosthesis and an oropharyngeal extension that superiorly and posteriorly displaces the impaired soft palate. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • In 2000 Dr. Wittmann retired from the medical college but continued his work on staged abdominal repair and the hook and loop fastener temporary fascia prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • U.S. Pat No. 4,496,446 discloses a method of reducing the initial in vivo strength retention of surgical devices manufactured from polymers having a glycolic ester linkage by incorporating fillers such as barium sulfate, magnesium oxide, etc., into the polymers. (google.com)
  • facial
  • The role of the maxillofacial prosthodontist in fabricating an ocular prosthesis to restore facial symmetry and normal appearance for the anophthalmic patient becomes essential. (ebscohost.com)
  • dental
  • A dental measuring and machining system includes a measuring and machining unit for preparing measurement data by measuring a prosthesis model based on a predetermined algorithm and for producing a prosthesis by machining a prosthesis block based on the above measurement data, and an operating unit for. (google.com)
  • A user is able to produce a dental prosthesis by operating the measuring and machining unit under the control of a computer. (google.com)
  • Conversely, a "fixed" prosthesis can and should be removed only by a dental professional. (wikipedia.org)
  • To enable this, the abutment is shaped as a small connector (a button, ball, bar or magnet) which can be connected to analogous adapters in the underside of the dental prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • anchor
  • wherein each ejected tissue anchor passes through a prosthesis positioned within the opening of the atrium. (google.es)
  • 6. The method of claim 1 , wherein upon passing through the prosthesis positioned proximate the opening of the atrium each ejected tissue anchor passes through tissue of the opening of the atrium. (google.es)
  • 7. The method of claim 6 , wherein upon passing through the prosthesis positioned proximate the opening of the atrium and passing through tissue of the opening of the atrium the tissue anchor secures the prosthesis to the tissue of the opening. (google.es)
  • 8. The method of claim 1 , wherein the ejecting step results in each ejected tissue anchor passing non-perpendicularly through the prosthesis. (google.es)
  • crown
  • Endodontic crown (aka: endocrown) is a single prostheses fabricated from reinforced ceramics, indicated for endodontically treated molar teeth that have significant loss of coronal structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was Bindl and Mörmann who named this restorative procedure "endocrown" in 1999 defining it as a total porcelain crown fixed to a depulped posterior tooth, which is anchored to the internal portion of the pulp chamber and to the cavity margins, thus obtaining macromechanical retention (provided by the pulpal walls) for restoring endodontically treated teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • The long-term retention rate decreases as the time that the tooth is detached increases, and eventually root resorption makes replacement of the tooth impossible. (wikipedia.org)
