OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to test the effect of a single-implant mandibular overdenture (SIMO), compared with conventional complete denture (CD), on masticatory performance measured by the mixing ability of a two-coloured chewing gum. METHODS A sample of edentulous subjects was randomly assigned to the SIMO (n = 15) and CD (n = 19) groups. Patients in both groups received a set of new complete dentures, and the SIMO group received a single implant in the symphyseal region of the… 

Individual factors associated with masticatory performance of complete denture wearers: A cross-sectional study.

Overall masticatory performance tested by the linear mixed-effect model confirmed that VOH value was negatively influenced by male gender, older age and shorter time since denture delivery.

Masticatory Ability for a Single Implant Mandibular Overdenture Retained by Two Different Attachments: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Comparison of masticatory ability subjectively between ball and Cendres+Métaux Locator (CM-LOC) attachment for a single implant retained mandibular overdenture throughout a 24-month follow-up period showed no significant difference between both attachments.

Evaluation of Bite Force and Masticatory Performance: Complete Denture vs Mandibular Overdenture Users.

IMO users have higher BF and better masticatory performance than CCD users, especially in terms of chewed particles size reduction, and MP is correlated with a higher BF in IMO users through better particle trituration.

Single mandibular implant study - chewing efficiency - 5-year results from a randomized clinical trial using two different implant loading protocols.

A single mandibular implant placed underneath existingMandibular dentures improves chewing efficiency of edentulous patients significantly over an observation period of 5 years, irrespective of the loading protocol.

A parallel 3-group randomized clinical trial comparing different implant treatment options for the edentulous mandible: 1-year effects on dental patient-reported outcomes and chewing function.

It is suggested that simplified implant treatments for edentulous patients result in favorable outcomes and may be considered as suitable alternatives to more complex interventions.

Patient-reported outcome measures of edentulous patients restored with single-implant mandibular overdentures: A systematic review.

In general, the edentulous patients restored with SIMOs had improved OHRQoL and general satisfaction compared to those with conventional complete dentures, but the outcome of masticatory function was controversial.

Clinical efficacy of mandibular complete dentures with a resilient liner: study protocol for a multicenter randomized controlled trial

The clinical efficacy of relining mandibular CDs using RL and NRL materials in comparison to RNL in CD wearers is evaluated and the new evidence regarding the use of RL materials in an aging population will be useful to dentists in other countries in their routine clinical practice.

The CAD-CAM fabricated overdentures provided increased chewing efficiency and better biting force compared to conventionally processed heat cured overdentURES, and no statistically significant difference was detected in the chewing efficiency or biting force when PEEK and PMMA overdenture were used.



Masticatory function and patient satisfaction with implant-supported mandibular overdentures: a prospective 5-year study.

Implant-supported mandibular overdenture treatment permits better biting and chewing function than conventional complete dentures, in entirely satisfied and not fully satisfied patients.

OHRQoL, masticatory performance and crestal bone loss with single-implant, magnet-retained mandibular overdentures with conventional and shortened dental arch.

Single implant-supported, magnet-retained mandibular overdentures significantly improve the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of completely edentulous patients.

Reliability of a two‐colour chewing gum test to assess masticatory performance in complete denture wearers

It was concluded that the two-colour chewing gum test is a reliable method to assess the masticatory performance in complete denture wearers using both visual and electronic colourimetric analyses.

Masseter muscle thickness, chewing efficiency and bite force in edentulous patients with fixed and removable implant-supported prostheses: a cross-sectional multicenter study.

Supporting complete prostheses with oral implants seems to have positive effects on the thickness of the masseter muscle, maximum bite force as well as chewing efficiency.

Implant-supported Mandibular Overdentures in Very Old Adults

Results indicate that edentulous patients who depend on help for activities of daily living may benefit from IODs even late in life, and participants in the intervention group demonstrated significantly higher denture satisfaction as well as an increased oral health–related quality of life compared to the control group.

Masticatory Performance and Maximum Bite and Lip Force Depend on the Type of Prosthesis.

Dental state, time lapse since last tooth loss, and MBF predicted masticatory function, and free-end saddles with a rotational axis in two-implant IODs and Kennedy Class I PRDPs may limit MBF and consequently masticatories performance.

Mandibular complete denture versus single‐implant overdenture: a systematic review of patient‐reported outcomes

Although available evidence suggests considerable improvement in patient-reported outcomes following the insertion of a single implant to retain a mandibular denture, further well-designed comparative studies between SIMO and CD are required to improve the level of evidence and to support the indication of SIMO treatment in routine practice.

Chewing efficiency, bite force and oral health‐related quality of life with narrow diameter implants ‐ a prospective clinical study: results after one year

The stabilisation of a lower complete prosthesis with four NDIs is a feasible minimally invasive and economical approach to improve oral function and OHRQoL, especially in elderly patients with limited bone support.
