BACKGROUND The authors reviewed and compared gingival retraction techniques used for implants and teeth. TYPES OF STUDIES REVIEWED The authors searched the literature using article databases Ovid MEDLINE up to May 2008, PubMED and Google Scholar (advanced search) and the following search terms: gingival retraction, implant abutment, impressions,(More)
PURPOSE This review critically compares the available clinical and laboratory methods for assessing the fit of an implant prosthesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS MEDLINE and PubMed databases were searched for studies related to the fit of implant prostheses or the effect of misfit. Different combinations of key words were used. The screening procedure was(More)
Titanium implants are widely used in the orthopedic and dentistry fields for many decades, for joint arthroplasties, spinal and maxillofacial reconstructions, and dental prostheses. However, despite the quite satisfactory survival rates failures still exist. New Ti-alloys and surface treatments have been developed, in an attempt to overcome those failures.(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The human mandible flexes during different jaw movements. Mandibular flexure is known to be restricted when natural dentition is restored with long-span fixed prostheses, but its effect on implant-supported fixed prostheses is unknown. Restriction of mandibular movement by implant-supported fixed prostheses may lead to excess strain(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to review the published literature investigating the accuracy of fit of fixed implant frameworks fabricated using different materials and methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS A comprehensive electronic search was performed through PubMed (MEDLINE) using Boolean operators to combine key words. The search was limited to articles(More)
Purpose. This in vitro study investigates how unilateral and bilateral occlusal loads are transferred to an implant assisted removable partial denture (IARPD). Materials and Methods. A duplicate model of a Kennedy class I edentulous mandibular arch was made and then a conventional removable partial denture (RPD) fabricated. Two Straumann implants were(More)
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Ultrasonic instruments have recently been developed for finishing crown preparations. They are successful in accessing difficult areas on the preparation margin, but their effects on the dentin surface and on bond strength are contradictory. PURPOSE The aim was to evaluate the condition of crown preparation margins finished using(More)

This article describes a procedure for fabricating an optimal provisional restoration before tooth preparation. The procedure involves the fabrication of an indirect-direct provisional fixed partial denture. There are several advantages to this procedure, such as reduced chair time, less heat generated in the mouth, reduced contact between resin monomer and(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this review are to determine the effect of mandibular flexure on the "implant-framework system," and analyze the existing literature on the topic. MATERIALS AND METHODS A MEDLINE and PubMed search was conducted to identify any articles in English related to the topic published up to May 2010 using the search words "mandible,""dental(More)
PURPOSE   Atraumatic, oscillating ultrasonic instruments have recently been developed for prosthodontic margin finishing. This in vitro observational pilot study aimed to compare the condition of crown preparation margins finished using new ultrasonic instruments with margins finished with conventional rotary instruments. METHODS   Two extracted human(More)
