Functional Prosthodontic Treatment and Restoration of the Vertical Dimension in Craniomandibular Disease

  • Stefan Ihde

Abstract

Implants have been widely used to support fixed prosthetic restorations since the early 1980s. Implantological treatment options were, and still are, a highly controversial issue in situations characterized by advanced ridge resorption and severe forms of periodontitis. After all, these conditions usually involve both the maxilla and the mandible, and dysfunctions associated with loss of the vertical dimension are routinely present.
