Prevalence Of Completely Edentulous Patients Opting For Implant Supported Prosthesis

Author: DR.AMAN MERCHANT, DR.SUBHABRATA MAITI, DR.VISALAKSHI RAMANATHAN
Abstract: A completely edentulous patient faces many problems like difficulty in chewing, drooping corners of the mouth, unaesthetic appearance etc. Hence, it is important to restore the patient's mouth. There are a variety of treatment options for completely edentulous patients ranging from complete denture to implant supported prostheses. The aim of this study is to check the prevalence of completely edentulous patients opting for implant supported prostheses and the correlation between types of prosthesis and various parameters. The subjects for this retrospective study were selected from June 2019 to May 2020. The prostheses were divided into four groups: Group 1: Complete denture treatment, Group 2: FP1 prosthesis, Group 3: Hybrid denture and Group 4: Implant supported overdenture. Frequencies of the prostheses were checked and Chi-square test was used to check the association of the treatment options with age and gender. It was observed that complete denture had the maximum prevalence, followed by an equal prevalence of FP1 prosthesis and hybrid denture and the least prevalence was of implant supported prosthesis. When the association was checked with types of prosthesis and age, it was observed that complete denture was mostly seen in elderly patients, whereas implant supported fixed prosthesis was mostly seen in middle aged patients. When the association was checked with types of prosthesis and gender, it was observed that complete denture was mostly seen in males, whereas implant supported fixed prosthesis had equal prevalence. It can be concluded that very few patients opted for implant supported prostheses with further studies required.
