Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Invisible denture is made from elastic polymer resin materials. It has preferable elasticity, flexibility and translucence.

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the clinical effect of immediate restoration using invisible denture for the anterior teeth. METHODS: Seventy patients scheduled for anterior tooth extraction were divided into two groups including the experimental group (n=35) by the use of invisible denture for immediate restoration 30 minutes after the removal of teeth, and the control group (n=35) by the use of traditional plastic denture for immediate restoration 30 minutes after the removal of teeth. A questionnaire on satisfaction was used in the study in order to examine patient's satisfaction of the denture immediately after treatment and 3 months after treatment respectively.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

(1)First wear: the experimental group had the superior satisfaction in outward appearance, phonetic function and retention function, while the control group showed better satisfaction in phonetic function and retention function. The experimental group showed obviously better outcomes in outward appearance than the control group (P < 0.000 1). (2)Three months after first wear: the experimental group had the superior satisfaction in outward appearance, comfort, phonetic function, retention function and masticatory function. The control group had the superior satisfaction in phonetic function and retention function. The experimental group showed obviously better outcomes in outward appearance than the control group (P < 0.000 1). The invisible immediate denture for the anterior teeth has favorable clinical effect and shows better effects on the outward appearance than the plastic denture.
