Formatted Abstract/Summary

Complete denture prosthetics has been experiencing a fundamental transformation during the past decade. This was due less to technical or instrument-related advances which nevertheless became increasingly significant, than to increased life expectancy and successful preventive dental care. These factors have resulted in the care of older denture patients, who, due to the aging process, are more difficult to treat when the anatomic structures, neuromuscular system, and psychic state tend to be unfavorable.

During the last ten years, developments in dental practices and research have led to new treatment strategies as well as to adapting the conventional methods in the areas ofgerodontology and geroprosthetics. Coincidentally, the movement away from “replacement thinking” and toward “preventive thinking” took place. Today, the presevation of the remaining oral structures is a basic objective of the treatment for complete and overdenture prosthetic patients.

The many subjects addressed in this atlas - in addition to Complete Dentures, Overdentures and Maintenance - include:
  Preprosthetic surgery
  Impression making for flabby ridges
  Static recording of maxillomandibular relations
  Modified tooth arrangements for unfavorable ridge relations
  Immediate dentures
  Duplicate dentures
  Implant-supported complete lower dentures Directly mountable prefabricated retentive elements
  Hybrid root coping and base design

We have made an effort to formulate realistic treatment objectives with the most concise theoretical explanation possible and to offer assistance to the dentist by presenting easy-to-understand treatment procedures.
