Rate of Residual Ridge Resorption in Complete Denture Wearers – A Narrative Review

Abstract The aim of the present narrative review was to gather the available information on overdentures in order to find an answer to the question, "Does overdenture affect residual ridge resorption?" The study also identifies the elements that affect the rate of residual ridge resorption in individuals who wear overdentures. Search strategy application, inclusion and exclusion criteria definition, and study selection for findings summarization were all part of the approach. Each author collected the literature from the database on their own, and the application of the exclusion criteria resulted in seven literatures. When taken as a whole, the studies show how complicated a combination of variables, such as prosthetic support type, implant presence, and length of edentulism, influence alterations in the bone of edentulous individuals. Compared to conventional complete dentures, implant-supported overdentures—especially those with several implants—seem to be associated with decreased bone resorption. All of the reviewed study findings highlight how important it is to utilise prosthetics, how occlusal pressures and implant use affect bone alterations in an individual's edentulous maxilla and mandible. The results deepen our knowledge of the challenges associated with caring for edentulous patients and emphasise the need for personalised treatment plans based on a range of patient-specific variables as well as ongoing investigation to better understand and treat residual ridge resorption in denture wearers.
