The level of bone crest surrounding the implant is of utmost significance to determine osseointegrated implant success, as preservation of marginal bone height is highly important for long-term dental implant survival. Various approaches have been described in the literature to prevent the crestal bone loss, including platform switching, non-submerged(More)
Prosthodontic management of occlusal wear problems is a demanding task on the part of the prosthodontist. Various factors such as vertical dimension of occlusion, centric relation, occlusal contact pattern, esthetics and phonetics need to be considered simultaneously for both anterior and posterior teeth during occlusal rehabilitation. This may be further(More)
AIMS The application of a paint-on die spacer onto the dies prior to the fabrication of cast crowns is an acceptable procedure to improve the fit of the restoration. The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the variation in thickness of different brands of die spacer based on the effect of storage time and application of additional layers. (More)
The most important factor affecting esthetics is colour. Whether a definitive prosthesis or a provisional restoration, maintenance of esthetics is of prime concern along with restoration of function. Colour stability of provisional prosthesis is affected by various factors and various studies are documented in the literature on this. The purpose of this(More)
AIMS To determine the average condylar inclination using ultrasonic axiograph; to determine the average condylar inclination using protrusive interocclusal bite records; to compare whether there is any marked difference in the values obtained by these techniques. SETTINGS AND DESIGN This clinical study compares the mean horizontal condylar inclination of(More)
To evaluate dimensional accuracy and tensile strength of a type IV gypsum product, at different time intervals, dried in air or a microwave oven. Eighty specimens prepared from a cylindrical mould were used for measuring tensile strength (group A). Twenty specimens from a master die mould were used for determining dimensional accuracy (group B). In group A,(More)
INTRODUCTION The prevalence of group function and canine guided occlusion is common in natural dentition, but cross arch balance is not often seen. Hence, a study was carried out with following objectives: Analysis of incidence of cross arch balance in different age groups and working side occlusal wear facets in following subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
This study compared levels of the 2 crevicular enzymes-myeloperoxidase (MPO) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP)-in peri-implant sulcus fluid (PISF) around platform-switched implants (implant group) vs the 2 enzymes' levels in gingival crevicular fluid around contralateral natural teeth (control group). Twenty subjects were selected from a population who were(More)
This article reviews the various anatomical facts significant for preoperative planning of implant procedures in the mandible and the maxilla. This planning includes the precise evaluation of distinct anatomical factors, such as the position of the mandibular canal, the maxillary sinus, the width of the cortical plates, the existing bone density ,(More)
BACKGROUND The design of the tooth preparation and the cementing medium are important consid-erations in the retention of crowns and fixed partial dentures. The purpose of this invitro study was to determine the effect of axial groove on the retention of complete cast metal crowns using two resin luting cements. METHODS Forty freshly extracted intact(More)
