Abstract
Purpose: The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the clinical outcome of overdentures on two Osseospeed Dental Implants (Dentsply Implants Sweden) with locator abutments in terms of implant survival, bone loss, patient satisfaction and clinical chairside cost. Materials and method: Twenty patients received new dentures serving as reference for insertion of implants in the mandible. After one- stage surgery, the prosthesis was adjusted on the locator abutments with resilient denture liner (GC America ). The retention was activated after three months. At intake, after the new denture, one month post-surgery and finally one month after loading the Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) was assessed using the OHIP 14 questionnaire. Hereby answers were ranked using a Likert scale from 4 (very negative) to 0 (very positive) and the OHIP-total score was calculated (maximum negative appreciation=56). Additional parameters like the cost and practitioner’s time were recorded. Results: OHRQoL improved by new dentures with decreasing OHIP-total from 15,7 to 9,7. This remained statistically unchanged during provisional retention (OHIP= 10,6). The locator activation further improved the OHRQoL to OHIP-total of 2,9 after 4 months. The laboratory cost was constant but the practitioner’s time to adapt the prosthesis was strongly patient dependent ranging from 145 to 280 minutes. Conclusions: Implant supported overdentures on locator abutments in the mandible improve OHRQoL but chair-side time is strongly patient dependent .
