Blurb/Shorttext:
The major challenge in prosthodontics today is not only the creation of dental restorations but also the successful integration of these artificial replacements into the dynamic oral system. Shortened dental arch concept was developed and meant to be applicable mainly for older people and those considered to be at high risk of dental caries and periodontal disease. The concept was aimed at preserving the most strategic part of dental arches : the anterior and the premolar regions. The anterior teeth and the premolars can together compensate for function of the molars. However, in contrast, the molars cannot compensate for the function of the anteriors and premolars. Thus, the anterior and premolar teeth are indispensable to the adequate function of the stomatognathic system. The intent of this book is to review the rationale, the advantages, the disadvantages and treatment outcome of oral rehabilitation employing shortened dental arch concept.
