STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The Kevloc bonding system is based on the bond of acrylic resin with the metal surface, in contrast to the Silicoater system, which covers the metal surface with a SiOx-C layer. Bonding prevents the occurrence of the marginal gap between the metal and the resin, which causes weaker bond strengths and discoloration. PURPOSE This(More)
The study assessed the number of missing teeth, the state of the existing prosthodontic appliances and the need for their replacement. Dental status and anamnesis were taken on a group of 120 elderly home residents by trained examiners. Prosthodontic appliances were evaluated according to the Karlsson's index for the crowns and bridges, and according to the(More)
UNLABELLED Functional diversity and biopsychosocial state is a significant issue, which greatly influences elderly oral health and state of fixed and removable prostheses. OBJECTIVES The goal of the investigation was to evaluate the quality of fixed and removable prostheses in a group of elderly home residents in relation to the ADL index. METHODS The(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the precision of dimensional measurements of the mandible on orthopantomographic images and thus to evaluate their dimensional reliability. Different distances denoted by metal markers were measured on 25 dry mandibles. The same mandibles were then positioned in an orthopantomographic machine, and radiographic(More)
The purpose of the paper was to ascertain the factors which affect the satisfaction of patients with the prosthetic therapy. The purpose of the paper was also to ascertain if there are common factors characteristic for patients dissatisfied with the prosthetic therapy although the specialist appraises it as objectively successful. 52 patients of the(More)
Number of the dentate subjects among the elderly is dramatically increasing, as is the elderly proportion in overall population. Such trends indicate more need for prosthodontic appliances in elderly. The aim of this investigation was to determine the distribution of various prosthodontic appliances in older age cohorts, subventioned by the Croatian(More)

The equipment used consisted of a gripping device with strain gauges, a measuring device and a printer. The results can be described as follows. With respect to absolute values the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper was to investigate the fatigue strength of a hydrothermal ceramic fused to Ag-Pd alloy. This study compared the values with those of other metal-ceramic systems previously reported by other authors. METHODS This investigation was performed on 48 specimens made of Ag-Pd alloy frames (45 x 12 x 4 mm) on which the(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the precision of the horizontal and vertical linear dimensional measurements on orthopantomographic images. Different horizontal and vertical distances denoted by metal markers were measured on 25 dry mandibles. The same mandibles were then positioned in an orthopantomographic machine and their radiographic images(More)
