PURPOSE This study compared the loosening torque of experimental conical-head abutment screws to that of conventional flat-head screws of implants with external-hex (EH) and internal tri-channel (IT)(More)
UNLABELLED In addition to an initial socket discomfort, ocular prosthesis (OP) installation may allow the adherence of fungi and/or bacteria due to the superficial characteristics of the prosthesis'(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM For implant-supported prostheses, passive fit is critical for the success of rehabilitation, especially when alternative materials are used. PURPOSE The purpose of this study(More)
An inadequate fit at the abutment/implant interface can generate mechanical and biological problems. The laboratorial stages could induce misfit in such interface when the castable UCLA abutment type(More)
PURPOSE The present study aimed to evaluate the retention and stress distribution of conventional (C) RPD and compare to RPD associated to implant for support (IS) and retention (IR). METHODS(More)
