The aim of this prospective comparative study was to evaluate the condition of the peri-implant tissues of three different implant systems supporting a mandibular overdenture. Ninety edentulous patients (Cawood class V-VI) participated in this study. After randomization, 30 patients were treated with 2 Brånemark implants, 30 patients with 2 IMZ implants and(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the effect of the number of implants supporting a mandibular overdenture on the condition of the peri-implant tissues. Sixty edentulous patients (Cawood class V VI) participated in this study. After randomization, thirty patients were treated with an overdenture supported by two IMZ implants (group A) and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this 10-year clinical trial was to evaluate the treatment outcome (condition of hard and soft peri-implant tissues, patient satisfaction, surgical and prosthetic aftercare) of mandibular overdentures supported by two or four implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty edentulous patients with a mandibular height between 12 and 18 mm(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this 5-year prospective comparative study was to evaluate treatment outcome (survival rate, condition of hard and soft peri-implant tissues, patient satisfaction, prosthetic and surgical aftercare) of mandibular overdentures supported by two or four implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty edentulous patients with a mandibular height(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective comparative study was to evaluate the survival rate, condition of peri-implant tissues, patient satisfaction and surgical and prosthetic aftercare of the IMZ-implant system (two-stage cylinder type), the Brånemark-implant system (two-stage screw type) and the ITI-implant system (one-stage screw type) supporting a(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the reliability of a new method for quantification of radiographic changes in the marginal bone around implants. METHODS Three groups of seven patients treated with an overdenture supported by two endosseous implants (Brnemark, n = 7 patients; IMZ, n = 7 patients; ITI Bonefit, n = 7 patients) were selected. Six weeks after loading(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective comparative study was to evaluate the survival rate and the condition of the peri-implant tissues of the IMZ implant system (two-stage cylindertype), the Brånemark implant system (two-stage screwtype) and the ITI implant system (one-stage screwtype) supporting a mandibular overdenture during a 5-year follow-up period.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the effect of mandibular angulation, position, and shape of an edentulous mandible on the distortion of its image in panoramic radiographs. STUDY DESIGN Five edentulous dry mandibles varying in size from small to wide and equipped with metal bars in and on top of the mandible were used. The mandibles were(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the applicability of a horizontal osteotomy procedure for reconstruction of a narrow edentulous mandible in order to enable insertion of implants. In 7 edentulous patients a narrow inferior alveolar ridge was reconstructed with autogenous bone grafts harvested by a horizontal osteotomy procedure (mean(More)
Mandibular fractures can occur with the insertion of endosseous implants. Four patients whose mandibles were fractured with the removal or insertion of mandibular endosseous implants are described. Three of the patients required an autogenous bone graft to repair the fracture, and 1 patient was managed with a reconstruction plate. Strategies for prevention(More)
