The aims of this study were to evaluate the success rates and peri-implant soft tissue responses of auricular implants, to assess prosthetic complications, and to calculate the survival rate of silicone auricular prostheses. Twenty-nine extraoral implants were placed in 10 patients with 11 auricular defects. Implant failure was defined as clinically(More)
Obturators are routinely used in the rehabilitation of maxillectomy defects. Ideally, obturators should be easily constructed to produce a comfortable and stable prosthesis. This article describes a technique that provides an easy method for the construction of an obturator prosthesis using a visible light-cured (VLC) resin. As a result, technicians can(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the visual and colorimetric color stability of two ultra low-fusing and three conventional low-fusing porcelains on both glazed and polished surfaces. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve disks, 10 mm in diameter and 3 mm in thickness, were fabricated for each porcelain. Specimens were glazed using their specific(More)
PURPOSE Patterns of von Mises stress values surrounding implants supporting fixed prostheses in the posterior edentulous maxilla were evaluated using 3-dimensional finite element analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Implants were placed in maxillary bone in 2 different configurations. In the first configuration, implants were placed in the first premolar,(More)
PURPOSE Difficulties in sterilizing impressions have led to chemical disinfection solutions as an alternative; however, some impression materials are more sensitive to humidity. For example, polyether impression materials are more hydrophilic. This study investigated the effect of three disinfecting methods on the dimensional stability of three polyether(More)
This article presents the use of dental implants for the retention of thumb prostheses. Two patients with traumatic amputation of the thumb were rehabilitated with implant-supported digital prostheses. A dental implant was placed in the residual bone of the thumb. After a 3-month osseointegration period, retentive attachment and silicone prostheses were(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial and antifungal properties of polyether impression materials using the agar diffusion test. Three different types of polyether impression materials (P2, Penta Soft and Penta) were tested to determine their ability to inhibit the growth of Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas(More)
