Thesis: Effects of dental implants on hard and soft tissues

Promotor(s): prof. H.J.A. Meijer, prof. G.M. Raghoebar, prof. A. Vissink

Faculty: Medical Sciences


This PhD study focused on the effects of dental implants on the hard and soft tissues in both edentulous and partially dentate patients. It was concluded that in edentulous patients there was slightly more mandibular posterior residual ridge resorption in patients treated with a two-implant overdenture than in patients treated with a four-implant overdenture over a period of 10 years. Regarding the mandibular posterior residual ridge, resorption was irrespective of wearing an implant-retained mandibular overdenture or a conventional mandibular denture.
