Treatment is influenced by the entity and by the presence of these clinical parameters: a greater number of lost teeth (T) require more time for prosthetic rehabilitation; basal bone damage (B) involves a lack of support for implants placement that need a bone graft or a reconstructive surgery; gingival tissue (G) could need a periodontal surgery intervention; soft tissue damage (S) could require a plastic surgery; and finally reconstructed patients (R) involve multidisciplinary approach and are more difficult to rehabilitate.
The importance of this study is best reflected clinically when the grossly atrophic or resected mandible is to be reconstructed to achieve the normal height of the mandibular basal bone that will support prosthetic device taken into consideration.
On the contrary, one would expect that, in presence of extreme compressive forces, some loss of maxillary basal bone would occur.
This difference in basal bone lead concentration might be the result of previous long-term calcium supplementation in the older patient population.
The left edentulous mandible was irregular basal bone with firm mucosa covering the bone from 41 until 37.
The patients selected were clin- ical and radiographical free of basal bone perforation.
The findings are probably because of the generally altered mandibular basal bone morphology associated with decreased masticatory muscle functioning as a result of aging.
The difference between the female mean values of this sample is much greater when compared with the black female mean (+ 7.6mm) of Aloisio and Kubersh on North Americans.18 Blacks having bi-maxillary proclination as a socially acceptable norm; show much increased value of "L1Apo"resulting in much more labial inclination of lower incisors with reference to the basal bone.
