BACKGROUND Except for denture quality, many other factors are related to a patient's satisfaction with complete dentures (CDs). METHODS A total of 222 patients with CDs took a part in this study. A questionnaire divided into 3 parts was completed by both the patients and the dentist, independently. The patients rated their dentures using a scale ranging(More)
Comparative measurements were made of 144 orthopantomographs in 50 patients with successful and 94 patients with unsuccessful inferior alveolar nerve block anesthesia. The results show that the bony lingula is prominent in 28.5% of all patients, or in 56.0% of those with unsuccessful anesthesia. The variables mandibular notch vs. mandibular foramen (MN-MF)(More)
OBJECTIVES The release of metal ions (Al, Ag, Au, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mg, Mo, Ni, Pd, Pt, Ti, and Zn) from the commercial gold/platinum (Au/Pt) dental alloy of declared composition was studied. METHODS Au/Pt was soaked in pH 6.0 phosphate buffer, 3.5 pH phosphate buffer and pH 3.5 mixture of lactic, formic and acetic acid, and incubated at 37 degrees C(More)
The aim of this study was to re-examine Leon Williams geometric theory and to find the degree of correspondence between the face and the tooth form in the population of Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Two thousand individuals with intact frontal teeth, in age between 17 and 24 years, were measured for 3 horizontal distances on the face: temporal width(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine how Co-Cr-Mo dental alloy behaves in the solutions of different pH value and different composition over a relatively long period of time. Co-Cr-Mo dental alloy was exposed in vitro to either simulated saliva (phosphate buffer pH 6.0), a highly acidic medium resembling the extreme conditions in the oral cavity(More)
Denture stomatitis (DS) is often found under the removable partial dentures (RPDs). There are many factors influencing it, such as patient's age and gender, smoking habits, denture age, denture material, denture wearing habits, denture hygiene habits, oral hygiene instruction, denture cleanness and denture plaque accumulation. The aim of this study was to(More)
The aim of this study was to screen patients with fixed prosthodontic appliances that were in oral cavity for a period of 5 years or more and to assess clinically and radiologically root caries, gingival recession, pocket formation, alveolar ridge resorption, as well as gingival (GI) and plaque index (PI). The aim also was to find out the differences(More)
The objective of this study was to measure and assess a number of radiomorphometric indices of the mandibular removable denture wearers taking into account age and gender. In a total of 136 dental panoramic radiographs (DPR) the following parameters were evaluated: MI = thickness of the mandibular cortex below the mental foramen, AI = thickness at the(More)
The aim of the study was to examine oral status in patients of the Metković region with fixed prosthodontic appliances. The aim was also to evaluate aesthetic materials used, and difference between the frequency of crowns and bridges dependent on patient's age and frequency of visits to dentist. The examination was performed on 212 dental patients with(More)
