3 Overdenture: Definition: A denture which is fitted over teeth which usually had their natural crown reduced.Objective:to distribute stress concertration between retained teeth abutments and denture supporting tissues.Special attachment may be fixed to the roots faces to provide mechanical retention for the denture
4 Indication: Major tooth wear to less severe tooth wear Congenital tooth wear, hypodontia or cleft palateSequalae of maxillofacial traumaPatient that heading in an edentulous direction (failing dentition)
5 Advantage of overdenture Preservation of edentulous ridge form-Especially for lower jaw-It will provide support and promoting stability of denture-Preserve labial undercut: better retention and stabilityMinimize horizontal forces on abutment teeth
6 Advantages of overdenture Improve appearance: more bone support, prevent labial and lip collapse.Preservation of sensory input: better occlusal awareness, biting force and neuromuscular control from the periondontal tissue.Allows scope of attachments. Eq; magnetic, telescopic crown, bar
7 Advantages of overdenture Improvement of crown root ratio:Due to tooth wear, the ratio become reduce.Patient perception of “Natural Feeling” and prevent tooth extraction.
8 Disadvantages Root canal therapy: increase cost, long treatment Limitation of space: may require design modificationPotentially fracture of denture base materials at thin/weak baseRisk for further disease on abutments: caries and periodontal diseasePeriodontal attachment lossRoot face cariesMay need additional or extra laboratory steps
9 Abutments: Issues of selection and protection from Caries and periodontal disease
10 Abutment selection:Periodontal and mobility status: health periodontal tissue. Slight mobility per se is not contraindicationLocation: Canine and premolars are most vulnerable to reduce adverse force. At least one tooth per quadrant.Endodontic and prosthodontics status.
12 Protection of abutments Plaque controldenture wearing habitsAnti-microbial agent: chlorohexidine m/washFlouride gel applicationReduction of crown portion especially in root treated teethEndodotically treated teeth: leave it unprotected or protect with coping with alloy, composite, reshaped and polished with sandpaper disks.
13 Materials for restoring the root face AmalgamComposite resinGlass Inomer cementPost retained copings-keeper, telescopic crownFull coverage of the root faceAttachment: precision attachment, stud attachment
14 Type of overdenture Directly over teeth-no reduction Reduction of crowns without endodonticsReduction of crown with endodonticsAttachment systemImplant supported denture
17 Transitional dentures Is an aid to the transition from dentate to edentulous. It helps to restore existing edentulous areas.It may be worn for short period of time before remaining natural teeth are extracted and denture are converted accordingly.Example: spoon denture, interim denture, immediate denture, overdenture
18 Indications for transitional dentures Immediate partial dentureProlonged restorative treatmentGrowing patient; children and teenagersFailing dentition
24 Treatment planning for the failing dentition CONTROL OF PAIN firstPeriodontal assessment: identify the prognosis of tooth (may need to retain or extraction).Patient: must be fully informed and patient is aware and UNDERSTAND they have periodontal disease.Extraction of painful, posterior teeth and rootsPeriodontal stabilization-never/necessary?Conservation: removable partial denture/crown/provisional denture (interim denture)/immediate denture
25 Decisions in treatment planning Should we provide immediate dentures at all time?Transitional denture: Immediate denture or interim dentures or complete clearanceConsider the history of patient
26 Decisions in treatment planning What problem is the patient presenting with?Is the patient in pain?Previous denture wearing experienceGagging: transitional dentureIs there an urgent need to extract the teeth.Can teeth be added to an existing dentureDo we need new prostheses.How many teeth should be removed at each stage?Clearance of teeth without prosthetic replacementSocial disadvantages.Loss of reference point for vertical and horizontal jaw relationship
27 Clearance with complete immediate denture Often difficulties wearing especially the lower prosthesis.More predictable way of preserving information on jaw relationship (vertival + horizontal) and tooth position.Massive resorption- whole jaw resorption>loose denturesPsychological effects
28 Sequencing of extraction For case that creeping to edentulous arch
29 Phase 1Remove posterior teeth initially and allow the ridges to heal (how many teeth you would extract?)Leave the index teeth eq:1st premolar. Therefore, correct vertical dimension is remained.
30 Phase 2Make partial acrylic denture. At this stage we call it transitional denture.Let patient accustomed and adapt with the prostheses. 2-4 weeks.If may require further extraction, interim denture could be considered.
31 Phase 3Once patient comfortable with the denture convert it to complete immediate denture.
32 Phase 4Replacement or rebasing After bone resportion has settled down
33 Transitional denture Advantages Disadvantages Simple and economic Relatively atraumaticFunction and appearance maintained.Can use information that remain eq: VDPatient preferenceAdaptation to denturesRepeated additions to dentures may be socially inconvenient.Problems from remaining teeth at any timeDifficulty constructing a functional and aesthetic denturePosition and distribution of remaining teeth unacceptableProlonged treatment
34 Immediate denture of failing denture CONCLUSION:Immediate denture of failing dentureGood communications skills is ESSENTIAL.Inform patient of requirement for follow up.Inform patient of requirement for definitive treatment at later stage.
