The effect on the antagonistic jaw bone resorption however, has not yet been evaluated. The aim of this study was to examine on orthopantomograms the anterior and posterior maxillary ridge resorption in three groups of patients with different mandibular prosthetic reconstructions: (1) overdentures supported by two implants, (2) fixed prostheses supported by four… CONTINUE READING
