Abstract

On these implants is possible to use a ball attachment, which works as an aesthetic retention, giving support with an optimized rotation axis and distributing occlusal forces to implants, teeth and mucosa.Results:In our units between 1998 and 2000 20 patients has been treated with 50 implants.At the end of a 7-year follow-up we can observe that:We've lost 3 implants (cumulative success rate of 94%)All prosthesis are still workingThe satisfaction of the patient is highThe maintenance of the prosthesis is similar to traditional RPDConclusions:IR-RPDs are designed to easily rehabilitate patients with a RPD anchored to one or two implants that enhance retention and stability without anaesthetic clasp assemblies on anterior teeth and avoid preparation of residual dentition in case of combined fixed- movable dentures or majors surgical procedures in case of implant treatment.
