A comparison of the early postoperative care required by patients treated with single and two stage surgical techniques for the provision of Brånemark implant supported mandibular overdentures



A comparison of the early postoperative care required by patients treated with single and two stage surgical techniques for the provision of Brånemark implant supported mandibular overdentures



European Journal of Prosthodontics and Restorative Dentistry 8(1): 17-21



Patients who underwent a single stage surgical procedure to place two Brånemark implants to stabilise complete mandibular overdentures with bar attachments, required no more postoperative follow-up visits before definitive prosthesis construction than patients who had their implants placed at two separate surgical stages. However, the visits of the single stage group, occurred over a shorter time-scale and more attention was required to tighten or replace their healing abutments.
