View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Statement of problem:: Over 30% of the world population suffers from edentulism. Implant supported overdenture have been a relatively successful treatment option for edentulism and have shown to slowed the rate of residual resorption and maintain the vertical height of the residual.

Purpose:: The purpose of this study was to measure patient masticatary efficiency and satisfaction with the mandibular one-, two-, and three-implant-retained overdenture therapy when compared with conventional denture in a the same patients.

Materials and methods:: Ten complete edentulous patients, who were wearing conventional complete dentures, were involved in this study. Three single piece endosseous implant of 3.0 mm in diameter and 13 mm in length were surgically placed in the mandible in the region of B, C, and D. Mandibular denture was connected for single, two, and three implant supported overdenture periodically and checked for masticatory efficiency using a bite gauge and patient satisfaction using a questionnaire.

Results:: Statistical analysis was done using Wilcoxon signed rank test. Four groups of bite forces when compared to each other. Group 1 was compared with Group 2, with the statistical value showing significance. Signed rank test showed no significance (0.268) when Group 2 was compared with Group 3. When Group 3 was compared with Group 4, and Group 1 compared with Group 4, rank test showed significant values. Four groups were compared with each other for patient satisfaction, Group 1 was compared with Group 2, with the statistical value showing no significance.

Conclusions:: A single midline implant supported overdenture can be considered as a suitable and cost-effective treatment option over conventional denture. The study concludes that masticatory efficiency of this single midline implant supported overdenture is better than the conventional complete denture.

Figure 1: Three single piece implant placed in the mandible

Mentions: Three single piece endosseous implant of 3.0 mm in diameter and 13 mm in length (Snap, Eqvinox Pvt. Ltd., India) were surgically placed in the mandible in the region of B, C, and D, after reflecting the anesthetized mucosa [Figure 1]. Parellelism and equi-distance of the implants in between each other was maintained with a prefabricated surgical stent for the initial drill. The reflected mucosa was sutured back and analgesics were prescribed, and the patient was advised not to wear the denture for a week to allow soft tissue healing. After a week, the existing denture was relieved in the tissue surface area of the denture to accommodate the projections of the single pieces implants and rechecked intraorally with occlusal spray (Okklean, DFS, Landenstrabe, Reidenburg, Germany). Patient was asked to use the conventional denture limitedly for 3 months of healing face.
