High impact information on Denture Retention

  • When a fibular graft is placed only at the inferior border of the mandible, the resulting vertical discrepancy between the graft segment and the occlusal plane can adversely affect implant mechanics or denture stability and retention [1].
  • Hydroxyapatite is a biocompatible material for augmentation of edentulous ridges to improve patient comfort and denture stability [2].
