NAPOLES GONZALEZ, Isidro de Jesús et al. Characterization of the patients with repairs of stomatological prosthesis. AMC [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.3, pp.321-327. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: for their function in the mouth, the type of material out of which is manufactured, the use and care on behalf of the patient, dental prostheses suffer breakings and deterioration very frequently that are solved in the clinic with repair. Objective: to characterize patients with repairs of stomatological prosthesis in Julio Antonio Mella clinic. Methods: an observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted from in 2015, in patients who were assisted in Julio Antonio Mella clinic.  The universe was composed of 590 patients over 20 years old from both sexes, in search of attention for urgency of prosthesis with problems of their prosthetic appliance. The selection of the sample was non probabilistic and it was made up of 567 patients who presented urgency for repair of their prosthesis. Results: among the 567 patients females prevailed. The age groups that predominated were the ones from 40 to 59 years followed by the 60 to 79 years. From the total of individuals that requested urgencies for repair of prosthesis 319 people used removable partial denture and 248 total prostheses. The major reason for reappearances was due to the fall of teeth in partial dentures, followed by the total fractures with predominance in the full dentures. Conclusions: the simple repairs were more abundant without notable difference between the full and the partial dentures. There was more incidence of fall of teeth in partial prostheses and complete fractures in the full dentures.
