1/8. Treatment of an edentulous patient with a dry mouth.

    Dental health professionals are being asked to care for a growing number and range of medically compromised patients living with chronic health problems. Although tooth loss overall has declined in the united states, millions of persons, particularly those of more advanced age, still require treatment for the edentulous condition. Particular challenges are faced when this oral state is combined with a complex medical history. The primary learning objective for this case is to increase your general knowledge of and skills in the dental management of the complete denture patient with a dry mouth.

2/8. Application of cast magnetic attachments to sectional complete dentures for a patient with microstomia: a clinical report.

    patients with microstomia who must wear removable dental prostheses often state that they are unable to insert or remove the prosthesis because of the constricted opening of the oral cavity. This article presents a cast iron-platinum magnetic attachment system applied to sectional collapsed complete dentures for an edentulous patient with microstomia. With the use of lingual and palatal midline hinges and a cast iron-platinum magnetic attachment, the sectional prosthesis was successfully and easily inserted and provided adequate function in the patient's mouth.

3/8. Reconstruction of the severely resorbed atrophic edentulous ridge of the maxilla and mandible for implant rehabilitation: report of a case.

    We describe a case with a severely resorbed atrophic edentulous ridge in both the maxilla and mandible. The maxilla was reconstructed using a sinus-lifting procedure and onlay bone graft. The mandible was reconstructed by anterior osteotomy with an interpositional sandwich iliac bone graft at the symphysis area, subperiosteally with iliac bone chips mixed with hydroxylapatite bilaterally at the posterior atrophic ridge, and vestibuloplasty with a split thickness skin graft (STSG). After full-mouth implant rehabilitation, a 5-year follow-up of this case shows a satisfactory result.

4/8. A prosthodontic management alternative for scleroderma patients.

    Hardening of the skin around the mouth causes the oral opening to become limited in scleroderma patients. A maximal oral opening that is smaller than the size of a complete denture can make prosthetic treatment challenging. This clinical report presents the prosthodontic management of a total edentulous patient with microstomia induced by scleroderma. Sectional mandibular and maxillary trays and a collapsed mandibular denture were fabricated for the total edentulous patient. With the use of lingual midline hinge, the collapsed denture was successfully and easily inserted and provided adequate function in the patient's mouth. The cast hinge design reduced the overall costs and simplified the laboratory technique.

5/8. Tooth position in full-mouth implant restorations--a case report.

    Reconstructing the edentulous mouth with opposing, fixed, implant-supported metal-ceramic restorations demands great attention to detail. This article reviews the basic principles of tooth position in dentate patients and in complete denture prosthodontics and relates them to the edentulous patient undergoing implant restoration. Determining gnathologic points and recognizing anatomic landmarks found in the edentulous jaws aid in correct tooth positioning, resulting in proper comfort, function, speech, esthetics, and a prearranged occlusal scheme, all of which are critical factors behind restorative-driven implant dentistry.

6/8. Surgical correction of the snout suffocation syndrome.

    Two nursing home patients with difficulty breathing because of occlusion of the mouth and nares by an involuntary snout reflex-like mannerism have previously been described. In both cases advanced dementia, edentia, and a downward-angled nasal base were present. life-threatening hypoxia occurred intermittently in one case, and after becoming severe, was corrected by the surgical procedure described.

7/8. Mouthguards for edentulous patients.

    There are occasions when fully edentulous patients require mouthguards. The following paper describes both the constructions of a full upper and a lower denture-mouthguard and a case report involving such a prosthesis.

8/8. A mouth protector for an edentulous patient: a case report.

    Most mouthguards made for edentulous mouths lack the stability to prevent dislodgement. In a case reported in the literature where stability was achieved the appliance was bulky, difficult to insert and remove and lacked permanence. To surmount these deficiencies one was designed in two halves which, when placed into the mouth, slotted together to give the stability of the one piece construction but at the same time allowed easy insertion and removal. This paper describes the construction of such a mouthguard and reports on one case.
