Fiber-Reinforced Implant-Supported
Article Date: Sep 21, 2015 Vol 14, No 7


Over the past 10 years, both fixed and removable dentures on implants have become commonplace and are readily available by dental professionals. Implant supported overdentures are commonly fabricated on anywhere from 1 to 4 implants and offer patients a significant increase in stability and improved mastication. They can be much more affordable than fixed implant alternatives, making it a more accessible solution.

The Enhanced Duplicate Denture as an Initial Phase of a Long Term Treatment Plan
Article Date: Nov 01, 2012 Vol 11, No 9
Jim Collis, CDT

This is a case study of a 58 year old male patient in need of full mouth rehabilitation (Fig. 1). The patient has an existing full upper denture and a partial lower denture. Both the upper and lower appliances are in extremely poor condition. The current upper denture is ill-fitting and loose due to resorption of the ridge and consequently rocks, resulting in poor occlusion (Figs. 2 & 3). The patient may require some lower periodontal work which could involve addition tooth extractions as yet to be determined. The patient also presents with oral hygiene issues which need to be addressed as part of the treatment plan. After conferring with his patient, the doctor contacted my dental laboratory to discuss the most cost-effective and feasible way to proceed.
