7-year TiUnite overdenture study

by: Jim Mack

Already available as an ePub, another study to be published in “Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research” follows up seven years of experience with the implant-supported mandibular overdentures.

7-year TiUnite® Overdenture Study

The implant-supported mandibular overdentures have become a popular treatment alternative for edentulous patients desiring increased retention of complete dentures.

“Seven-year Follow-up Results of TiUnite Implants Supporting Mandibular Overdentures: Early versus Delayed Loading,” by Drs. Ilser Turkyilmaz, Tolga F. Tozum, Dana M. Fuhrmann and Celal Tumer, evaluates and presents treatment outcomes of mandibular overdentures retained by two unsplinted, early-loaded implants and compares these results with those for delayed-loaded implants.

No implant was lost in this clinical trial, and the results show that there is no significant difference in the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients treated with mandibular overdentures supported by TiUnite implants that are either early or delayed loaded.
