SIXTO IGLESIAS, Marlys Suse et al. Removable prosthetic rehabilitation in the total toothless patient. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.185-194. ISSN 1561-3194.

Introduction: overlay dentures rehabilitation improves the quality of life of patients, while the rehabilitation techniques are simple and more dental tissue is preserved. Objective: to characterize the behavior of removable prosthetic rehabilitation in the total toothless patient. Material and method: a descriptive, longitudinal and retrospective study was performed in patients rehabilitated with overlay dentures in Antonio Briones Montoto Dental Clinic of Pinar del Río, in the time between the years 2013 and 2014. The target group consisted of 28 patients and coincided with the sample. Data was compiled from the clinical records. Results: most dentures were localized in the mandible. The majority of the patients with peri-implant mucositis (14.3%) practiced fair or bad oral hygiene. A statistically significant dependency existed between the two periods of time when changing the Teflon capsule was required. Conclusions: the behavior of removable prosthetic rehabilitation in the total toothless patient was characterized.
