Prosthetic Rehabilitation in Partially Edentulous Elders - A Case Report.

Picos AM, Donca V, Picos A - Clujul Med (2014)

Bottom Line: A number of aspects must be considered in elderly patients before starting the therapy: physical and mental condition, self-care capacity, time and cost of treatment, predictability.In institutionalized elders, suffering of systemic diseases, the therapy of choice should be the least invasive and able to restore function at an acceptable level.Active healthy elders can be beneficiaries of complex prosthetic treatments involving many long sessions and difficult treatments.

ABSTRACT
Complex treatment involving removable articulated to fixed prostheses is indicated in extended edentulous areas, which represent clinical conditions more frequently encountered in elderly patients. A number of aspects must be considered in elderly patients before starting the therapy: physical and mental condition, self-care capacity, time and cost of treatment, predictability. In institutionalized elders, suffering of systemic diseases, the therapy of choice should be the least invasive and able to restore function at an acceptable level. Active healthy elders can be beneficiaries of complex prosthetic treatments involving many long sessions and difficult treatments. We present a case of a 74 year-old male with extended maxillary edentulous areas, in whom a complex prosthetic treatment was performed.

f5-cm8703p203: Components of maxillary prosthetic reconstruction and connection system

Mentions: Support for the RPD was evaluated in the oral cavity. RPD was stable and the occlusion was convenient with a free gliding movement (3 mm) without cuspal interference during masticatory movements. Approximate symmetrical design of the prosthetic complex is favorable for good acceptance (fig. 5).
