AIM To determine the influence of frequent removable partial denture (RPD) wearing on the alveolar bone density changes around the abutment teeth. METHODS Fifty examinees of both genders, wearing partial dentures, were included in the study. Thirty one of the examinees (62%) were wearing the dentures 24 hours a day, while nineteen (34%) of them were wearing them only during the day. The changes in the bone density around the abutment teeth were determined by the intraoral microdensitometry… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effects of removable dental prostheses on mandibular bone density in postmenopausal osteoporotic patients
The fact that removableMandibular prostheses did not cause a significant change in mandibular bone density could be because the patients started using the removable prostheses long after they lost their teeth.


Changes of alveolar bone density around the abutment teeth in patients wearing removable partial dentures depending on Kennedy classification.
The results indicated that Kennedy classification had no significant influence on the change of bone density in RPD patients during first 3 month of RPD wearing (ANOVA: p > 0.05).
Periodontal considerations in removable partial denture treatment: a review of the literature.
Removable partial dentures do not cause any adverse periodontal reactions, provided that preprostheticperiodontal health has been established and maintained with meticulous oral hygiene, and basic principles of RPD design are followed.
Oral status and prosthetic factors related to residual ridge resorption in elderly subjects.
This study showed local factors related to RRR more often in the maxilla than in the mandible, thus suggesting that severe resorption in theMandible is influenced more by systemic factors than by those investigated in this study.
Effect of differences in habitual use of complete dentures on underlying tissues.
No significant differences in the frequency of denture stomatitis between the two groups of wearers differed from one another in respect of changes in the morphologic or postural face height or in the anterior part of the mandible.
Clinical evaluation of removable partial dentures 10 years after insertion: success rates, hygienic problems, and technical failures
Although the prostheses were unsupervised in service, the 60.4% overall success rate of the dentures was somewhat higher than in other studies on precision-retained prostheses.
A histomorphometric analysis on bone dynamics in denture supporting tissue under continuous pressure.
Investigation of bone dynamics under a denture base caused by continuous pressure exerted through it was revealed to show a time course depending on the intensity of the initial pressure, and amount of bone resorption was also revealed to correspond to theintensity of theInitial pressure.
The patient's and the therapist's evaluation of complete denture therapy.
It seems that subjective factors in patients, expectations of the denture or the number of previous dentures play a role in satisfaction, not only the quality of denture bearing area and thequality of a denture.
