In one study abutment tooth mobility was seen in 37% patients wearing fixed self-cure dentures,9 another study done on patients treated by quacks reported that 20% of patients had mobile teeth.2 These results underpin the periodontal destruction caused by FSD made with poor design and unsuitable materials.
Tensile stimulation of the periodontal ligament fibers allows bone deposition, and hence, the chances of abutment tooth mobility are lowered [5,8].
The abutment tooth is dried, the temporary is cemented onto the tooth, and the patient is instructed to occlude into the temporary to ensure that the occlusion is still perfect with the cement in place.
* Failed: if the appliance was lost or removed due to poor design (soft tissue irritation), faulty construction (breakage), failure of the cementation, failure of a space maintainer due to caries, pulpal/ periodontal pathology of the abutment tooth, or poor patient attendance;
Influence of abutment tooth position and adhesive point dimension on the rigidity of a dental trauma wire<composite splint.
The ratio is based on linear measurements on a 2-dimensional radiograph only; however, when evaluating abutment teeth, the clinician should assess the status of alveolar bone height 3-dimensionally along with the total supported root surface of the abutment tooth. (4,15) Since most roots have conical shape and the root length is only a 1-dimensional linear measurement, a more comprehensive investigation would reveal conflicting results.
