STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Progressive resorption of the posterior residual ridge and attachment wear increase the rotational movement of mandibular 2-implant-supported overdentures (IODs). Limited information is available regarding the biomechanical effects of rotational movement on anterior implants during mastication. PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro… CONTINUE READING
