Summary and Info
Two-implant overdentures have been shown to increase the satisfaction and quality of life of edentulous patients who have difficulties with conventional dentures, and this book provides compelling evidence for the efficacy of this rehabilitative treatment based on a thorough review of the current literature. Following a presentation of demographic trends for edentulism, leading experts discuss the impact of mandibular two-implant overdentures on function, nutrition, and overall quality of life for edentulous patients. They also share practical insights about patient preferences and expectations, treatment planning, prosthodontic management, and predicted costs of this treatment for clinicians and patients. In addition, one chapter vividly illustrates a classic case of rehabilitation with an overdenture, showing each stage of treatment from the first examination to denture delivery. This book will be useful for anyone who treats edentulous patients.ContentsPrefaceContributorsIntroduction: It Is Time to Tackle Denture Disability/James P.
