BACKGROUND Clinical studies reporting the outcome of zirconia-based restorations indicate that the strength of the zirconia frameworks is sufficient to withstand masticatory forces. However, a significant incidence of cohesive fracture of the veneering porcelain has been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate spontaneous crack development(More)
In this multicenter prospective study, the results achieved with the use of Brånemark implants for single tooth replacement were evaluated. The overall cumulative success rate was 95.9% for implants and 91.1% for crowns. Two of the 99 implants placed had to be removed before the prosthodontic stage of treatment; thus, 97 were restored with CeraOne crowns.(More)
Forty-six patients presenting with chronic orofacial muscle pain and eight age- and sex-matched control subjects were investigated for the carriage prevalence of, and exotoxin production by, coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). The eight control subjects were selected from an initial group of 41 subjects on the basis of the absence of musculoskeletal(More)
Tooth loss and its replacement have significant functional and psychosocial consequences. The removal of intra-dental and periodontal mechanoreception accompanying tooth loss changes the fine proprioceptive control of jaw function and influences the precision of magnitude, direction, and rate of occlusal load application. With the loss of all teeth,(More)
There is good evidence from animal studies for segregation in the processing of non-nociceptive and nociceptive information within the trigeminal brainstem sensory nuclear complex. However, it remains unknown whether a similar segregation occurs in humans, and a recent tract tracing study suggests that this segregation may not exist. We used functional(More)
The second part of this review, evaluating the literature on the relationship between dental occlusion and temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), focuses on the aetiological importance of tooth loss and the place of prosthodontic replacement in the treatment of TMD. Loss of teeth and lack of posterior occlusal support seem to have little influence on the(More)
AIMS To use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine whether orofacial cutaneous or muscle pain is associated with changes in primary motor cortex (M1) activity that outlast the duration of perceived pain, and whether these M1 changes are different during cutaneous pain compared with muscle pain. METHODS fMRI was used in healthy subjects(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this article are to critique the available literature on dental implants in patients with ectodermal dysplasia (ED) syndrome and tooth agenesis, review the outcomes of implant therapy in these patients, and provide recommendations on the timing of implant placement for these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Searches were performed using(More)
