Clinical Profile and Therapeutic Implications on Patients Restored by Removable Prosthesis: A Survey Study in the Department of Odontology of Dakar
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.
