Impact of Thermoplastic Acrylic Denture Base Versus Conventional Base on the Patient Satisfaction in Implant Supported Mandibular Overdenture: A Systematic Review


Objective: The aim of this systematic review was to study the impact of thermoplastic acrylic denture base on the patient satisfaction in implant supported mandibular overdenture. Methods: Two electronic databases and hand searching were performed through May 2016 without limitations. The scientific terms: “Dental prosthesis”, “Implant supported”, “Denture bases”, “Overdenture”, “Thermoplastic acrylic resin”, “Acrylic bases’ and “Flexible acrylic resin” were used in this study. Initially, screening was performed for the retrieved articles through title and abstract after that, a full-text assessment was done to those articles that fulfilled the inclusion criteria. Findings: Sixty one potentially eligible studies were retrieved from the database search, after duplicate removal the studies became thirty-two. Titles and abstracts that fulfilled the inclusion criteria were selected for full-text assessment. Finally, one study met the inclusion criteria, and so its references were also screened. Applications/Improvements: This study would increase the application of the versacrylic resin to the denture base as a new material to utilize all its merits to improve the patient satisfaction.
