what are the objectives of oral rehabilitation?
~Restores optimal functional occlusion
~Maintain the health of the periodontium
~produce biologically contoured restorations in harmoney
~replace missing teeth
~provide support to teeth with bone loss
~desirable esthetics
What is oral rehabilitation?
Extensive restorative procedures in a mouth that can't be treated with routine dental care. restores dental health, function and physical form to dentition
what does the assesment include?
recession, exposed root surfaces, furcation areas, gingival contour, blue gingival margins
Name some parts of the fixed prosthesis
Long splints, natural abutment teeth, implant abutment teeth, closed contacts, gingival surfaces of pontics, wide or narrow-difficult to clean embrasures
what are the components of oral rehab?
*Perio therapy * crowns and inlays
* occlusal adjustments * endo
*correction of oral habits
When should the disease control program be set in place?
before surgical or restorative pros., during therapy, and after reconstruction
Why are root surface caries difficult to manage?
Because it spreads too fast. Restorations on root caries tend to break down faster
Disease control procedures:
Custom build your plan
select appropiate methods and devices
demo and practice- add slowly
send home with written directions
When should a custom-tray application be used?
For pts in the root caries risk group and those with multiple sensitive teeth
Recheck your successes within one week by accessing what?
* Gingival tissue
*plaque-disclosing solution
*performance( observe and adjust)
*re-evaluate PRN
*readjust regimen
* send them home with written directions
Dental Implants:
Placed within or on bone to replace teeth or for support. Success may depend on daily care
Name three types of implants
Endosseous, subperiosteal, and tranosteal
endosseous implants:
Placed within the bone, most widely used, blade screw cylinder, placed in bone and left uncovered for several months while implant bonds with tooth. uncovered and prothesis placed
Over bone, under periosteum, complete arch or unilateral.
1. flap, impression
2. implant placed, 4 screws protrude
or 1-step; Cat scan, casts, implant is placed
Through bone, metal plate with two set pins, mandibular atrophy, congenital or traumatic deformity
which type of implant is made of stainless steal, ceramic and titanium alloy?
which type of implant is made of vitallium or titanium?
Which type of implant is made of metals & alloy, ceramics and carbon, polymers
When selecting a pt for implants what is necessary?
carefully screened, no systemic conditions, adequate bone, no perio, and effective oral care
what is implantitis?
Implant failure if it becomes loose or broken
During the surgical steps what can movement of the implant cause?
The formation of a fibrous tissue layer instead of osseointegration(bond of implant to bone)
Frequency of appointments with implants:
1 week after appointment, weekly until healed and pt controls plaque, and 1-2 months maintenance for the first year
