Therefore, a within-subject crossover clinical trial was designed in which 145 completely edentulous subjects were tested wearing implant-supported mandibular fixed prostheses and long-bar overdentures. Eight subjects received the fixed appliance first and seven the removable type. The patients' perceptions… CONTINUE READING
