Immediate function with Brånemark implants is well established for the mandible. This article describes a series of 857 implants placed consecutively in which very few implants failed or lost bone despite the dynamic healing conditions of simultaneous dental extractions and bone leveling. Though these findings are relatively early, 3 years or fewer, it(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate a specific protocol using four implants to support immediately loaded fixed prostheses to restore edentulous and partially edentulous mandibles and report on the outcome after 1 year of function with the definitive prostheses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study was conducted of all patients who(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and treatment of hour glass variant mandibles for All On Four implant placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cone beam CAT scans were analyzed for 719 patients to determine the incidence of alveolar constriction in the mandible. Ten patients with alveolar constriction were treated over a 2-year(More)
Extensive prosthodontic treatment often requires fabrication of long-term provisional restorations. Numerous materials and techniques have been described for prolonged insertion of interim restorations. This article describes a procedure for fabrication of long-term reinforced heat-processed provisional restorations based on a diagnostic wax-up. Reinforced(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Chemical bonding plays a major role in the adherence between metal and porcelain. The formation of an oxide layer on solder material has not been described in the literature. It is unknown whether the application of solder negatively affects the bond strength between porcelain and metal. PURPOSE This in vitro study assessed the effect(More)
This article describes a new rationale and method involved in the fabrication of a patient detachable prosthesis supported by a milled bar. This simple procedure improves prosthesis retention. The overdenture is processed directly over a milled bar, which provides an intimate relation between the bar and the acrylic resin denture base to create resistance(More)

Osseointegrated dental implants have been proven successful in the treatment of edentulism. The predictability of the implant-supported prosthesis has also been established. Several techniques have been described for the successful restoration of the edentulous mandible: fixed-detachable prostheses with either the original Brånemark hybrid prosthesis design(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the different variables involved in tooth cutting to characterize intrapulpal temperature generation, cutting efficiency, and bur durability when using conventional and channeled diamond burs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty premolars and 60 molars were selected for the study. Four diamond burs were paired(More)
PURPOSE A retrospective study was performed to evaluate the feasibility of simultaneous use of immediately loaded zygomatic and mandibular implants for full maxillomandibular restoration. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 40 zygomatic and 112 conventional implants were placed in 19 edentulous and partially edentulous patients and restored with full-arch(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The application of solder material to metal frameworks could affect the porcelain-to-metal failure load and possibly compromise the longevity of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. PURPOSE This in vitro study assessed the influence of solder on the porcelain failure load between metal and porcelain, using crown-shaped specimens. (More)
