Patient Satisfaction With Overdentures Supported by One-Stage TPS Implants

Daniel Wismeijer, DDS/Jaques l.J.H. Vermeeren, DDS, PhD/Marinus A.J. van Waas, DDS, PhD

PMID: 1398824

Sixty-four edentulous patients with severe conventional denture problems who had been treated with 218 one-stage titanium plasma sprayed (TPS) screw implants and new overdentures were clinically evaluated and questioned on their experiences with treatment up to 6 years after implant insertion. The results demonstrated that only seven of the implants had failed during this period, resulting in a success rate of 97%. Most of the patients (95%) were satisfied with their new overdentures, and almost all patients (98%) found that their new dentures fit comfortably. Only 3% of the patients treated would not recommend that others undergo similar treatment. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1992;7:5155.)

Key words: dental implants, denture satisfaction, overdentures
