This study aimed to assess the prevalence and the severity of oral impacts and the relationships between oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and clinical measures of oral function in a sample of older adults in Bosnia. The sample comprised 261 community-dwelling adults of ≥65 yr of age. Participants were randomly drawn from three senior day-centres(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Retentive force of removable partial denture (RPD) directly depends on elastic force of stretched retentive clasp arms (RCAs). During deflection RCA must have even stress distribution. Safety factor is the concept which can be applied in estimating durability and functionality of RCAs. This study was based on analyzing properties of clasps(More)
INTRODUCTION Estimation of frequency and quality of root canal fillings is the way to evaluate endodontic treatment needs and success/failure rates of performed endodontic procedures. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and quality of root canal fillings and the frequency of apical periodontitis on endodontically treated teeth(More)
It was the purpose of this study to determine and analyse strains in the bone of posterior mandible below the removable and fixed partial dentures using Digital Image Correlation Method. Dried mandible with shortened dental arch (Kennedy Class 1) was used in the experiment. The mandible model was prepared for accepting two types of restorations for(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to identify the prevalence of partially edentulous individuals in Serbia and to identify prosthodontic treatment used for their rehabilitation as well as to compare prosthodontic treatment concepts among Serbian elderly participants who answered closed-format questionnaires. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was conducted at(More)
The aim of this study was to register and measure any deformation of mandible models under load. The method for full field measurement of strain is done by using the ARAMIS three-dimensional image correlation system. The system uses two digital cameras that provide a synchronized stereo view of the specimen and the results show the complete strain field(More)
This study analyzed the influence of platform switching on the stress/strain distribution of vertically loaded implants. Employing finite element analysis, the aim of this study was to determine the distribution of stresses and strains generated by a simulated vertical load on different implant models positioned in the molar region with respect to changes(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the quality and persistence of esthetics of dedicated inlay by clinical methods. METHODS The paper reviews the clinical significance and technique of preparing particular composite inlays before and after the construction of the metallic framework partial denture. On the basis of indications the total of 30(More)
The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate the strain distribution of the compressed mandible bone under the applied restoration- removable partial denture and to compare with the same but unrestored mandible under vertical (occlusal) load and to find out whether removable partial denture-restored or unrestored mandible causes greater strain effect(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most prevalent sleep disorders. It is recognized as a serious risk factor for car and workplace accidents due to daytime sleepiness, and factor for coronary heart diseases and stroke. The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of oral appliances for mandibular advance in treating mild to(More)
