Clinical Profile and Therapeutic Implications on Patients Restored by Removable Prosthesis: A Survey Study in the Department of Odontology of Dakar
Abstract This cross-sectional and descriptive study aimed to describe the clinical profile of patients treated by removable prosthesis in the clinic of the Department of Odontology. The survey carried out using anamnesis and clinical examination of patients. The variables were about general and local nature. The statistical analysis was made by SPSS Version 16.0 with a risk error of 5%. The sample consisted of 51 patients including 80.4% of men. Their average age was 60.1 years. They were generally in good health (56.9%), with a sound supporting soft tissue (80.4%) and had bone resorption at the stage 3 of Atwood scale (74.5%). Full removable prosthesis was worn by 62.75% of the sample. The majority (54.9%) of the patients wore full removable prosthesis on the antagonist arch and 5.9% had a complete dental arch. The posterior edentulism accounted for 33.3%. Lesions of supporting soft and hard tissues observed are likely to promote prosthetic failure. In order to support the adaptation of their prosthesis, the execution of an adequate organization of rehabilitated patients recall procedures could constitute an appreciable alternative.
