Abstract

The introduction of implant-supported overdentures as a clinical alternative has improved the quality of life of the edentulous population. Implant-supported overdentures have diminished many of the problems associated with conventional dentures by providing improved retention, stability, function, esthetics and physical and emotional health. Greater support and stability of the implant borne prosthesis is associated with improved bite force and oral function for overdentures when compared to conventional complete dentures. An adequate amount of restorative space is required when fabricating implant-supported overdentures. This space must accommodate a denture base of sufficient dimensions, appropriately positioned denture teeth, and an implant attachment system. Insufficient space may lead to reduced structural integrity of the prosthesis and/or compromised oral function. Typically a mandibular removable prosthesis is more vulnerable to fracture due to its shape and overall dimensions. Incorporation of a metal framework, metal reinforcing mesh, or woven or fiberglass-impregnated mesh have been recommended to improve resistance to denture fracture during function. This article presents a method for fabricating a framework that is specifically and predictably suspended within the denture base in order to decrease fracture susceptibility of implant-supported overdentures.
