STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Various implant impression techniques, such as the splint, pick-up, and transfer techniques, have been introduced, and some techniques may be more accurate than others. Also, clinically, some factors, including the angulation or depth of implants, may affect the accuracy of the implant impressions. PURPOSE The purposes of this review(More)
Denture stomatitis (DS) is a fungal infection characterized by inflammation of the oral mucosa in direct contact with the denture and affects up to 50% of denture wearers. Despite the prevalence, very little is known about the role of fungal or host factors that contribute to pathogenesis. Recently, we developed a novel intraoral denture system for rodent(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM In some instances, an implant needs to be placed deep subgingivally, which may result in a less accurate impression of the implant. PURPOSE.: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of subgingival depth of implant placement on the accuracy of implant impressions. MATERIAL AND METHODS A stone master model was fabricated(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM In some clinical situations, the length of either a prepared tooth or an implant abutment is shorter than ideal, and the thickness of a porcelain crown must be increased. Thickness of the coping and the veneering porcelain should be considered to prevent mechanical failure of the crown. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to(More)
PURPOSE There is lack of knowledge about the clinical performance of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) titanium-ceramic-fixed partial dentures (FPDs). The purpose of this study was to evaluate CAD/CAM titanium-ceramic FPDs after 3 years in function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one FPDs were fabricated for 23 patients. The Ti(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this retrospective study was to assess if there was a difference in the likelihood of achieving passive fit when an implant-supported full-arch prosthesis framework is fabricated with or without the aid of a verification jig. MATERIALS AND METHODS This investigation was approved by the University of Rochester Research Subject Review(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM In some clinical situations, the length of either a prepared tooth or an implant abutment is shorter than ideal, and the occlusal clearance to be restored by a porcelain crown is large. Incisal thickness of the coping and the veneering porcelain should be considered to prevent mechanical failure of the crown. PURPOSE The purpose of(More)
This clinical report describes the rehabilitation of a completely edentulous 29-year-old man diagnosed with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Four implants were placed in each arch, and metal-resin implant fixed complete dentures were fabricated for both arches. This treatment option appears to be favorable for EB patients, compared to other(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) titanium ceramic restorations were developed with the potential for replacing expensive, high noble metal ceramic restorations. However, there is a lack of information about the clinical performance of CAD/CAM titanium ceramic single crowns. PURPOSE The purpose of this study(More)
