Overdentures and the periodontium
Knoernschild / Lefebvre / Allen
Several periodontal factors are critical to the prognosis of overdenture abutment teeth. This literature review outlines these factors and discusses the documented effects of long-term overdenture use on periodontal health. The efficacy of a professional periodontal maintenance program, which is coordinated with a home oral hygiene program, is related to the success of overdenture therapy.
