Abstract

ALMEIDA, Híttalo Carlos Rodrigues de et al. Clinical aspects in the treatment planning for rehabilitation with overdenture and protocol-type prosthesis. RGO, Rev. Gaúch. Odontol. [online]. 2015, vol.63, n.3, pp.271-276. ISSN 1981-8637.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1981-863720150003000032920.

Objective:

The aim of this study was to criticaly review the published literature regarding the clinical aspects involved in the rehabilitation of edentulous patients using Branemark protocol and overdenture prostheses.

Methods:

An active search was conducted in the LILACS, MEDLINE, PubMed, and SciELO databases using the descriptors: "Coating for dentures" (Overlay Prosthesis and Overdenture) and "Implant-supported fixed dental prosthesis" (Protesis dental de suporte implantado, Dental prosthesis, and Implant Supported Prosthesis) in Portuguese, English, and Spanish between January 2000 and October 2014.

Results:

The following parameters should be considered when selecting between Branemark protocol and overdenture prostheses: bone support, lip support, lip-line, upper lip length, oral mucosa conditions and size, alveolar ridge contour, crown-bone ratio, interarch space, and speaking space. Overdenture rehabilitation can provide many benefits to patients, such as prosthetic retention, stability, comfort, and improved aesthetics.

Conclusions:

This study highlights the need for a thorough individualized treatment planning to ensure that fixed prostheses and overdentures have an excellent prognosis when used appropriately in suitable patients at the appropriate time.
