Keywords

Prosthetic rehabilitation of class I partial edentulous mandible is one of the problems in removable prostheses. The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinically and radiographically the changes in the supporting structures in distally extended partial denture cases either constructed from vitallium or karadent. Patients and methods: Twelve mandibular bilateral partially edentulous male patients (Class I Kennedy classification), with age ranging between 35-60 years were selected for this study from those attended to the prosthodontic department, Faculty of Dentistry, Suez Canal University. The patients were given a detailed explanation concerning the present state, alternative treatment plans and the proposed procedures.Clinical and radiographic evaluations were carried out for every patient at insertion 6, and 12 months. Results: Bony changes of the supporting structures was greater in Karadent than in Vitallium in both sides of the ridge. Pocket depth scores were greater in Vitallium than in Karadent in distal abutments of both sides. Gingival index scores were greater in Vitallium than in Karadent in distal abutments of both sides. Conclusion: The use of karadent with its superior properties, is better accepted by the patients, regarding esthetics, retention and efficiency.
