ABSTRACT

Aim of the study The study analyzed the impact of various types of prostheses in the field of removable dentures on the edentation rehabilitation degree. Material and methods The study lot consisted of a number of 75 patients (aged between 30 and 82), reuniting clinical entities in the field of dental prostheses.  Results After and evolutive analysis of integrative aspects, we can notice a rising curve of defects shown by removable dentures and the age of the restoration, while we can assess negative effects that are limited to the type of modern dentures, where the biomechanical principle is well observed, the anti-tilting elements being well-placed.

The dental occlusion, the landmark of any prosthetic restoration, was balanced in a percentage of 39.47% of the study lot, a percentage of 60.53% remaining in the field of occlusion with modified parameters, this percentage being also found in the deterioration of fixed or removable dentures. The dynamic occlusion was characterized by positive indices at a percentage of 40.72%, while 59.28% of the cases indicate discontinuous trajectories and unstable dento-dental contacts.   Conclusions The loco-regional aspects and the dento-periodontal clinical and biological indices, as well as the mucous bony ones dictate the design of the final prosthetic construction and the choice of the maintenance, support and stabilization elements.
