Amina Elsalhin [2] | Afaf Abulamosha


Abstract: Aims: To evaluate the effect of different types of fixed prosthesison diabetic patient in term of success and failure. Purpose: To determine if the choice of the design of fixed prosthesis has an effect on the failure of FPD in the diabetic patient. Materials and methods: This is a retrospective study of 53diabetic patients who visited the Diabetes and Endocrinology Hospital between January 2019 and May 2021. Patients underwent medical evaluation for their routine check-up were invited to take part in this study. Among the 53 patients, 6 patients were type I and 47 were type II. Results: The number of retainers, pontics, and the types of restoration were recorded, by examining 53 patients with 202 crown and bridge unites from the Diabetes and Endocrinology Hospital/Tripoli. The collected data related to the bridge area were then subjected to descriptive analysis. The result of the study revealed that recession around the abutment was the most frequent complication in patients with Fixed-Fixed design (81.1%), while pain and pocket were the most frequent complications observed on patients with cantilever design (38.5%). Conclusion: Cantilever bridge design exhibit superior results than fixed-fixed design in diabetic patients. Choice of the appropriate design of fixed partial denture (FPD) can be effective in patients with diabetes. Clinical significance: By knowing the reason of failures, a proper treatment plan can be made so that the prosthesis will have a long time prognosis.
