Chewing side preference is a factor that could effect prosthodontic treatment. The purpose of this study was to determine whether chewing side was another type of hemispheric lateralization comparable with footedness, handedness, eyedness and earedness. Chewing side preference was tested in 189 subjects of whom 84 were partially edentulous, 98 had a full(More)
Variations in the bulk of wash in a putty-wash impression technique can result in dimensional changes proportional to the thickness of the wash material during setting. The purpose of the study was to determine the amount of wash necessary to achieve accurate stone models while using a two-step putty-wash impression technique with polyvinyl siloxane (PVS)(More)
Microleakage can occur at the abutment-implant (A-I) interface in osseointegrated implants and may cause malodor and inflammation of peri-implant tissues. The degree of microleakage at the A-I interface of 5 implant systems was comparatively assessed at varying closing torques. Using colored tracing probes driven by a 2-atm pressure system, the interface(More)
Today the clinician is faced with widely varying concepts regarding the number, location, distribution and inclination of implants required to support the functional and parafunctional demands of occlusal loading. Primary clinical dilemmas of planning for maximal or minimal numbers of implants, their axial inclination, lengths and required volume and(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Implant abutment screw joints tend to loosen under clinical conditions. During impression and prosthesis fabrication, repeated clinical closing and opening of abutment screws may cause component wear and decrease frictional fit of the mating parts, resulting in altered resistance to opening and potential for loss of preload in function.(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Several studies have shown the unreliability of recording and reproducing the condylar guidance in semiadjustable articulators. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between the anatomic shape of the articular eminence and the corresponding panoramic radiographic image in dry skulls.

A significant clinical consideration in the restoration of partial edentulism with implant and tooth-supported prostheses is whether implants and natural teeth abutments should be splinted, and if so, in what manner. This article presents a review of laboratory and clinical studies related to splinting. Stress analysis studies reveal high stress(More)
Lone standing splinted implant segments are accepted as optimal. However, in the treatment of partial edentulism, clinical reality often predicates the consideration of splinting teeth and implants due to variables of tooth/implant location and available bone support. This article presents a review on biomechanical aspects of splinting teeth and some(More)
Colorimetric measurements were made on four composite resins before and after controlled immersion treatments. The four composite resins were: Adaptic (Johnson and Johnson), Prestige (Lee Pharmaceuticals), Addent XV (3M Mfg. Co.) and Smile (Kerr Mfg. Co.). Specimens of each material were prepared with mylar surfaces and with abraded finished surfaces.(More)
Die transnasale fiberoptisch-endoskopische Laryngoskopie mit Schluckuntersuchung (FEES) hat die Untersuchungsmöglichkeiten und das therapeutische Management bei kindlichen Schluckstörungen grundlegend verändert. Dieser Artikel soll eine Übersicht über die Untersuchungsmöglichkeiten geben und die Vorgehensweise bei der Anwendung der FEES darstellen. Hierbei(More)
