Implant Supported / Implant Retained Removable Partial Dentures (IRPDs)

The placement of implants beneath extension base removable partial dentures (RPD) provides substantial support and / or retention that enhances patient comfort and function.

  • There is improved patient satisfaction with Implant Retained Partial Dentures compared with conventional RPDs.
  • There is improved patient satisfaction with Implant Retained Partial Dentures (IRPD) compared with conventional RPDs.
  • The use of implants with RPDs decreases the Oral Health Implant Profile score (this represents a positive improvement).
  • Several clinical examples are presented.

Outcome of bonded vs all-ceramic and metal ceramic fixed prostheses for single tooth replacement

A review to compare resin-bonded, all-ceramic and metal-ceramic fixed dental prosthesis (FDPs) based on existing evidence.

  • 258 relevant articles were identified.
  • Metal-ceramic FDPs still show the highest survival rates of all tooth-supported restorations. 
  • All-ceramic restorations may reach comparable survival rates while the technical complications are more frequent. 
  • Resin-bonded FDPs can be seen as long-term provisional restorations.

Treatment options for congenitally missing lateral incisors

A systematic review was performed to identify studies that examined maxillary lateral incisor agenesis treatment.

  • Maxillary lateral incisor agenesis is the second most common agenesis.
  • 12 articles were selected (out of 8,453) for inclusion.
  • Both therapeutic options are effective.
  • It seems that the orthodontic space closure is advantageous over the prosthodontic rehabilitation.

Preoperative radiological evaluation of missing single teeth: A review

Missing single teeth can be treated in several ways and preoperative radiological evaluation varies accordingly.

  • Review the impact of cross-sectional imaging on diagnostic thinking.

  • Investigate the need for cross-sectional imaging in the context of implant treatment.
  • Present information relating to diagnostic efficacy, dose of radiation, economic aspects of imaging.

Single implant and crown versus fixed partial denture: A cost-benefit, patient-centered analysis

Prior to osseointegrated implants, fixed partial dentures (FPD) served as the primary means of replacing single missing teeth. But benefits provided by an implant compared to a FPD established the single implant as the preferred treatment alternative FPD in most situations.

  • Single implants and their crowns have high survival rates that exceed the survival rates for fixed partial dentures on teeth

  • Most (but not) all publications have determined single implants are more cost-effective than 3-unit fixed partial dentures. 

  • Both initial root canal treatment and retreatment are more cost-effective than tooth extraction and rehabilitation with a single implant and crown

A systematic review of survival of single implants as presented in longitudinal studies with a follow-up of at least 10 years

Single implants is one of the most common treatments. Millions of patients have been treated with osseointegrated implants; many of these patients are treated at a young age with a long expected remaining lifetime. Therefore long-term evidence for such treatment is important.

  • Report patient treatment, implant and implant-supported single crown survival over at least a 10-year period of follow-up

  • Is single implant treatment is a predicable treatment over a 10-year period of time?

  • Present the incidence of biological and technical complications
  • ‘Survival’ was defined as the implant/restoration remaining in situ at follow-up examination visits.
