Scope of the study: is to critically evaluate and, implicitly, to establish a correlation among the status of edentation, the missing odonto-periodontal support and the necessary implantary therapy.
Materials and method: The experimental group was formed of 179 patients, 93 women and 86 men, with ages between 18 and 72 years, who addressed the Clinics of Periodontology and some private consulting room between 2010-2012. The investigations involved both a minute clinical examination, by descriptive and canonic methods, and paraclinical exams: gnatophotostatic examinations on intra- and extra-oral (front and profile) photos, patterns of study and radiological evaluation by OPT with markers.
Results: The highest values were registered for III class Kennedy edentations, especially in the 31-50 years group of age, and mainly in women. This evaluation led to a higher number of implantary treatments. The necessary of implantary treatments was of 100% in IV, V and VI class Kennedy edentations, as well as in total edentations.
Conclusions: The necessary number of interventions on bone structures for the optimization of the implantary field is of 43.92%, the highest ratios being represented by controlled bone regeneration.
