Abstract

Implantoprosthetic oral rehabilitation of partial or complete edentulousness/edentia represents a complex clinical problem. The solution of such problems and appropriate care of patients, ensuring functional and aesthetic durability of the implantoprosthetic restoration, requires an interdisciplinary approach and cooperation of experts in the field of implantology and dental prosthetics. It also depends on a number of factors which include the features of the constructive elements of the implantology system itself, the method of taking impressions and transfer of the situation in the mouth of the patient to the dental technical laboratory, choice and treatment of the stump, technique of fabricating the prosthetic restoration, and the method of fixing the finished restoration in the patient’s mouth. The study includes an examination and presentation of the important features of different implantoprosthetic systems which have an influence of the simplicity and preciseness of use of their components from the viewpoint of the prosthodontist and dental technician, the quality of the fabricated prosthetic restoration on implants, its functional and aesthetic durability, and the total success of implantoprosthetic therapy.
