Abstract


Statement of the Problem: One of the existing problems in maintenance of balanced occlusion in complete denture prosthesis is the wear that is associated with artificial resin teeth. Wear of acrylic results in concomitant loss of vertical dimensions which later manifests in other problems like residual ridge resorption. Though there are at present certain brands which manufacture teeth with occlusal surfaces in metal, but they have not found much clinical acceptance by both dentists as well as patients.
Purpose: To fabricate occlusal surfaces of resin artificial teeth in base metal alloys in order to preserve the integrity of balanced occlusion in the complete denture prosthesis.
Materials and Methods: A completely edentulous patient, artificial prefabricated resin teeth, elastomeric impression material and pattern wax.
Results: Artificial resin teeth can be modified on the occlusal surface and transformation of occlusal surfaces in base metal alloy results in long term maintenance of occlusal contacts and thus maintains the principles of preservation of residual alveolar ridges.
Conclusion: Artificial resin teeth can be modified with this simple and novel technique of fabricating occlusal surfaces in base metal alloys.


Author Keywords: Completely edentulous, complete denture prosthesis, balanced occlusion, adaptation, mastication.
