To elicit information about the phenomenon of intrusion of natural tooth abutments in implant-connected prostheses, a survey was distributed to clinicians with varied experience. Although practitioners with more experience in fabricating implant-supported dentures connected to natural teeth reported fewer instances of intrusion, it cannot be concluded that… (More)
Fixed restorations for patients with implant-supported abutments frequently produce an unsatisfactory mechanical, biologic, or esthetic compromise. Pure titanium transmucosal abutments have biologic advantages, and factory-milled abutments for the comparable implant interface have mechanical advantages. The ultimate restorative objective is to satisfy the… (More)
On occasion, there is danger of TMJ injury from holding the violin in a playing position for long periods of time. A study of a patient with premature degenerative TMJ disease emphasizes the value of a routine occlusal and TMJ examination.
The prevalence and magnitude of mandibular displacement from RCP to IP in a principally adult sample was evaluated. The findings and their possible clinical significance were discussed.
Lateral transcranial radiographs of 926 patients were analyzed for condylar position, TMJ space, and obvious condylar morphologic changes. Differences in condylar position and joint space variations were noted between men and women. An increase in nonconcentric condylar position, joint space variations, and condylar morphologic changes were found with… (More)
Guidelines for a projected scientific presentation can assist the speaker in preparing an effective audiovisual presentation. This article highlights the factors that improve the quality of an audiovisually assisted presentation and enhance successful communication.
A comparison of three methods of obtaining information relating to some TMJ signs and symptoms has been made. The taking of an oral history by this examiner was shown to be the least reliable. The acquisition of data by this verbal process is a clinically sophisticated and difficult medical procedure and a major source of error is the bias or preconception… (More)
Self-learning support systems are already being successfully used to support sophisticated processes. For the widespread industrial use, there are still challenges in terms of accessibility with respect to the process and the scalability in the context of large amounts of data. This paper provides an example-driven view on the Bishop project for Big Data… (More)
The development of a standardized method of collecting data from a questionnaire and a simplified, yet relatively complete, occlusal and temporomandibular examination form has been described. The questionnaire and clinical examination form have evolved from earlier forms developed by the author1 which have been used in numerous private offices and… (More)
