Implant Therapy - 7
Terms in this set (34)
Unable to fully recover normal function, comfort or speech with a
traditional removable prosthesis
Soft tissue does not offer
support, stability, or retention
What does offer support, stability, and retention?
Alveolar bone _____________ in the absence of teeth
What helps retain alveolar bone?
With implants, are tooth positions limited to the underlying anatomy?
Improved retention of implants is a direct impact of
How many implants are recommended for the mandible?
How many implants are recommended for the maxilla?
Implant location should eliminate
Implants must be spaced with enough
anterior posterior spread
Increasing support via implants decreases
soft tissue abrasion
Without implants, a CD can move as much as _________ during function lending to poor centric contact and decreased chewing efficiency
With implants, centric contact becomes repeatable & function is increases as much as
results in reduced gagging, reduced weight, increased taste perception, torus relief
results in better esthetics, comfort
the actual replacement of the ROOT of a tooth
the prosthetic replacement of the tooth or teeth
the connector between the implant and the restoration; always screw retained
Attachment systems can be
multi or single
metal component in the denture that retains or houses a plastic attachment; denture cap in locator catalog
disposable plastic component engineered to grip the abutment and provide retention to the denture
attachment or male retention insert
Dual retention locator attachment systems (internal & external retention) require implants that do not diverge beyond
If non parallel (20-40 degrees),
external retention only
Male retention inserts are classified by
force needed to remove the denture (in lbs)
Critical information for abutment sizing
implant platform diameter & cuff height
the distance from the platform of the implant to the highest point of the gingival margin surrounding the circumference of the implant
the retentive component must remain ____________ the tissue to avoid impingement
What are the most common risk factors associated with high risk of implant failure?
diabetes, smoking, bisphosphonates, periodontal disease
What are the disadvantages of a pano?
distortion, not 3D
The position & quantity of implants depends restorative
space and design
What is essential to all edentulous cases?
screening image + wax trial denture =
tentative treatment plan
What is now being used in place of pantographs that provides a 3D anatomical image that can be easily manipulated and visualized with specialized software to plan implant position in relation to final prosthesis design?
