Abstract

The overdenture is a special type of prosthesis that covers the remaining teeth, roots or implants. The purpose of this study is to present the functional aspects of overdentures with examination of the chewing efficiency in three different groups of patients with removable appliances. The chewing efficiency was investigated by a scientific method (1) that really applies to two chewing gum with two different colours of the spectrum or colour wheel. In comparing the results, computer analysis were applied for the selection of colours in the program Colour Schemer Studio V2.1.0. The method of comparative analysis was applied in patients with overdentures with patients that have fixed - mobile prosthetic devices and patient’s wearers of skeletal dentures. The results of the examination of patients and the use of the two chewing gum dyed in the primary colours of the yellow and the blue spectrum, confirm the effectiveness and practical applicability of the test method. This shows that this method can be successfully used in everyday clinical practice. The hypotheses are confirmed about the degree of chewing efficiency of different types of prosthetic devices. Through our results by computer processing and visually we found that the overdenture, properly planned and prepared, allows the patient to achieve chewing performance that approaches the performance that patients have with complex fixed - mobile prosthetic replacements.
