Implant-supported overdentures: Benefits and risks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The restoration of edentulous patients using implant-supported dentures became a very popular treatment modality with world-wide acceptance; however, some principles remain controversial. This chapter emphasizes the uniqueness of implant overdentures and some important considerations when such treatment is planned. It was concluded that the attachment incorporation techniques are detrimental to the long-term prosthetic aftercare and to the benefit or success of implant-supported overdentures, indicating the implant number to be used, attachment type related to splinting or nonsplinting, the importance of timing in restorations.
