An implant-supported removable partial denture for a patient with post-inflammatory scar contracture caused by burn complications: a clinical report.

Kim JH, Lee JH - J Adv Prosthodont (2012)

Bottom Line: The scars and contracture around the oral-facial region may cause difficulty in prosthodontic treatment to restore esthetics and function for the patients, who suffered severe burns.This article presents a technique that uses a fixed partial denture prepared with a conventional milling technique and an attachment to support anterior cantilever removable partial denture, thereby providing a more esthetically acceptable and functional result.

ABSTRACT
The scars and contracture around the oral-facial region may cause difficulty in prosthodontic treatment to restore esthetics and function for the patients, who suffered severe burns. This article presents a technique that uses a fixed partial denture prepared with a conventional milling technique and an attachment to support anterior cantilever removable partial denture, thereby providing a more esthetically acceptable and functional result.

Figure 1: Burn scars were prominent in the right side of this patient.

Mentions: A 60-year old woman was referred from the plastic surgery department to the Department of Prosthodontics at Yonsei University Health System. She had a chief complaint of restoring her oral function and esthetics after series of plastic skin graft procedure done. During the extra oral examination it was noted that the elasticity of muscle and skin tissue around oral angular area was lost due to scars from burns and tissue grafting, which resulted in limited maximum mouth opening of 20 mm. Therefore, proper prosthodontic treatment was impossible on the right quadrants of the mouth (Fig. 1). The intraoral examination showed that all of maxillary teeth were missing except tooth number #25 and splinted gold crowns on #34 and #35, whereas fixed partial denture on #33 to #43 were present on the mandible.
