Share Abstract:

Mechanical stabilization in the mandibular anterior segment


Pages: 243-248
PMID: 10635251

Teeth in the mandibular anterior region of the mouth, affected by years of periodontal disease and resultant bone loss, frequently require treatment for the patient to be able to chew comfortably and effectively. Often patients choose to keep compromised teeth, despite being persented with treatment options involving a fixed or removable prosthesis. In these situations, mechanical stabilization becomes necessary. Current treatment possibilities include bonding with resin composite or placement of a bonded metal mesh splint, a cast metal resin-bonded retainer, or a fiber-reinforced resin composite splint. Coupled with good oral hygiene practices, these mechanical stabilization techniques can provide increased oral comfort and improved function, especially for geriatric dental patients.
