AB  - Compromised dentition has been suggested to pose a significant risk factor for dementia. It was mainly investigated through insufficient tooth number, disregarding contact between opposing teeth (dental occlusion). The epsilon 4 allele of apolipoprotein (APOE4) is the primary genetic marker for the late onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, APOE4 and dental occlusion have not yet been investigated as possible associated risk factors for AD. The study was aimed to examine the impact of dental status and different APOE gene variants on AD occurrence. Secondly, sociodemographic variables were investigated as factors potentially associated with AD. The case-control study included two groups: 116 patients with AD (according to the NINDS-ADRDA criteria) and 63 controls (Mini-Mental State Examination scores >= 24). The analysis of APOE gene polymorphism was conducted through PCR reaction. Dental examination included recording of number of teeth, presence of fixed or removable dentures, and number of functional tooth units (FTU). Regression analysis was used to investigate the joint effect of the clinical and genetic variables on AD. Results showed that patients with AD were more often carriers of epsilon 3/epsilon 4 genotype and epsilon 4 allele, had lower number of teeth and FTU, and were less likely to be married, live in home, and had less chronic diseases, compared to the controls. Regression analysis showed that presence of APOE4 allele and the number of total FTU remained associated with AD, even when adjusted for age, sex, and level of education. In conclusion, deficient dental occlusion and presence of APOE4 may independently increase risk for AD.

AB  - Introduction. The growing population of the elderly people and a proportional increase in the number of the elderly with different types of disabilities, necessitates a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment of their oral health and dental treatment. The ultimate aim is to retain a pain-free functional dentition and decrease the risk of future disease. Material and Methods. A PubMed search was performed and the authors contributed their experience in implementing preventive and therapeutic measures. Oral health problems of the elderly with disabilities. Two main factors influence the oral health: multimorbidity and polypharmacy. Oral health problems expected in this population are teeth abrasion, teeth fractures, root caries, periodontitis and problems with wearing dentures due to stomatitis caused by Candida albicans. Oral health assessment and treatment guidelines. This article provides guidelines for assessment and treatment planning, taking into consideration multimorbidity, polypharmacy, dementia and capacity of caregivers. Preventive measures. Preventive measures are crucial for long-term oral health of this population, and this paper provides guidelines for preventive treatment depending on the degree of functional dependence. Prosthetic treatment. Although some elderly with disabilities are suitable for conventional prosthetic treatment, often there are contraindications and specific considerations that must be taken into account. Conclusion. Oral health needs of the elderly people with disabilities should not be neglected and the success of treatment depends on the education of dental professionals and cooperation with other health professionals of the medical team.
AB  - Uvod. Zbog rastuće populacije starih ljudi i proporcionalnog povećanja učestalosti broja starih ljudi sa različitim tipovima hendikepa, multi disciplinarni pristup proceni njihovog oralnog zdravlja je neophodan. Krajnji cilj je postići funkcionalnu denticiju bez bolova i smanjiti rizik od budućih oboljenja. Materijal i metode. Pretraživanje literature u bazi PubMed je obavljeno, ali je takođe iskustvo autora u primeni preventivnih i terapijskih mera uzeto u obzir. Problemi oralnog zdravlja starih ljudi sa hendikepom. Dva glavna razloga imaju uticaj na oralno zdravlje: multi morbiditet i polifarmacija. Problemi oralnog zdravlja koji se očekuju u ovoj populaciji su abrazija zuba, frakture zuba, karijes korena, parodontopatija i problemi sa nošenjem proteza usled stomatitis uzrokovanog kandidom (Candida albicans).

Ovaj članak obezbeđuje korisne smernice za procenu i planiranje tretmana, uzimajući u obzir multi morbiditet, polifarmaciju, demenciju i kapacitet negovatelja. Preventivne mere. Preventivne mere su ključne za dugotrajni uspeh oralnog zdravlja ove populacije i ovde su prikazane smernice za preventivne mere u zavisnosti od stepena funkcionalne zavisnosti. Protetski tretman. Iako su neki stari ljudi sa hendikepom pogodni za konvencionalni protetski tretman, većina ovih pacijenata ima neke kontra indikacije i specifičnosti koje treba uzeti u obzir. Zaključak.

AB  - Alzheimer disease is the most common cause of dementia. Having in mind changes in behavior and cognitive functions, but also its great incidence, Alzheimer disease represent increasingly sociological problem worldwide. Diagnosis is set during some time interval based on phychology tests and differential diagnosis with other dementia types, but its confirmation can be made only postmortem when senil plaques and neurofibrilar tangles are identified in brain tissue. There is neither efficient therapy for AD, nor clear ethiology, which is why scientists are very interested for it. Risk factors which are confirmed so far are age and genetic factor, and no risk factor from enviroment has been confirmed. Scientific problem of this thesis is based on influence of apolipoprotein E, oral health and nutritive status on Alzheimer disease but also their mutual correlations and joint actions. Apolipoprotein E (apoE) participates in lipoprotein metabolism, stabilizes and maintains their structural integrity; it is cofactor in enzyme reactions, ligand for lipoprotein receptors, and it is involved in reversible cholesterol transport. Appearance of two or more forms of some gene (allele) with individual frequency more than 1% represents gene polymorphism. In apoE, polymorphism is single nucleotide type. ApoE has three codominant alleles (ε2, ε3, i ε4) which are responsible for synthesis of three protein isoforms apoE2, E3 i E4. Having three alleles determinates 6 genotypes (ε 2/2, 2/3, 2/4, 3/3, 3/4, 4/4) and 6 phenotypes: E 2/2, E2/3, E2/4, E3/3, E3/4, E4/4. Apolipoprotein E4 represents basic genetic risk factor in Alzheimer late-onset. Relationship between nutrition and brain cells health is neither clear nor proved. Some data indicate that nutrition with less fat and rich in fruits and vegetables can improve brain cells health. Some studies showed that bad oral health can be significant risk factor for Alzheimer disease development. Potential mechanisms of oral diseases influence on dementia are through inflammatory mediators which are produced as response to periodontal pathogens or through oral gram negative bacteria dissemination – transitory bacteremia...
AB  - Alchajmerova bolest je najčešći uzrok demencije. S obzirom na promene u ponašanju i kognitivnim funkcijama sa jedne strane i njenu veliku učestalost sa druge strane, Alchajmerova bolest predstavlja sve veći sociološki problem u svetu. Dijagnoza se postavlja u toku vremenskog intervala na osnovu psiholoških testova i diferencijalne dijagnoze sa drugim tipovima demencije, a potvrda dijagnoze se može dobiti samo postmortem kada se specifični senilni plakovi i neurofibrilarna klupka identifikuju u mozgu. Ne postoji efikasna terapija za AB, kao ni jasna etiologija što stavlja ovo oboljenje u žižu naučnog interesovanja. Od faktora rizika za sada su, između ostalog, poznati godine starosti kao i nasledni faktor, a sa sigurnošću nije utvrđen nijedan faktor rizika iz okolne sredine. Naučna osnova problema ove disertacije se sastoji u uticaju apolipoproteina E, oralnog zdravlja i nutritivnog statusa na Alchajmerovu bolest ali i njihovoj međusobnoj korelaciji i udruženom delovanju. Apolipoprotein E (apoE) učestvuje u metabolizmu lipoproteina, stabilizuje i održava njihov strukturni integritet, služi kao kofaktor u enzimskim reakcijama i kao ligand za lipoproteinske receptore, a uključen je i u reverzni transport holesterola. Pojava dve ili više formi nekog gena (alela) sa pojedinačnom učestalošću višom od 1% predstavlja genski polimorfizam. Kod apoE, polimorfizam je po tipu polimorfizma pojedinačnih nukleotida. ApoE gen ima tri kodominantna alela (ε2, ε3, i ε4) odgovorna za sintezu tri proteinske izoforme: apoE2, E3 i E4. Postojanje tri alela apoE gena određuje postojanje 6 genotipova (ε 2/2, 2/3, 2/4, 3/3, 3/4, 4/4 ) i 6 različitih fenotipova: E 2/2, E2/3, E2/4, E3/3, E3/4, E4/4. Apolipoprotein E4 predstavlja osnovni genetski faktor rizika kod kasnog javljanja („late-onset“) AB. Veza ishrane i zdravlja moždanih ćelija nije jasna ni dokazana. Neki podaci govore da ishrana sa manje masti a bogata voćem i povrćem može da poveća zdravlje moždanih ćelija...

AB  - Introduction. So far, the most promising and most commonly used materials in endodontic treatment and retreatment were calcium silicate cements. However, due to the shortage of this material and treatment failures, a new bioactive material was introduced - Biodentinetm. It is a calcium silicate based technology, with excellent handling characteristics and biocompatibility. It can be used in various indications, including dentine substitution and endodontic therapy. Case reports. The clinical cases demonstrated excellent healing potential after the treatment with Biodentinetm. Conclusion . The bio-silicate technology is highly promising, mostly due to its chemical properties and easy clinical manipulation. The short setting time and high mechanical strength makes Biodentinetm a material easy to handle, highly biocompatible, with a wide range of indications.
AB  - Uvod. Do sada, najčešće korišćeni materijali u endodonciji, i ujedno materijali koji najviše i obećavaju u endodontskom tretmanu­ i retretmanu su bili kalcijum-silikatni cementi. Međutim, u skladu sa nedostacima ovog materijala i neuspesima tretmana, javio se novi materijal Biodentinetm. On je napravljen na kalcijum-silikatnoj tehnologiji sa odličnom biokompatibilnošću kao i karakteristikama u vezi sa aplikacijom materijala. Može da se koristi kod različitih indikacija, uključujući supstituciju dentina i endodontsku terapiju. Prikaz slučajeva. Klinički slučajevi pokazuju odličan potencijal lečenja nakon tretmana­ Biodentinomtm. Zaključak. Biosilikatna tehnologija veoma obećava najviše zbog hemijskih karakteristika i lake kliničke manipulacije. Kratko radno vreme i velika mehanička jačina čini Biodentinetm materijalom koji je jednostavan za korišćenje, visoke biokompatibilnosti i sa velikim opsegom indikacija.

The bio-silicate technology is highly promising, mostly due to its chemical properties and easy clinical manipulation. The short setting time and high mechanical strength makes Biodentinetm a material easy to handle, highly biocompatible, with a wide range of indications., Uvod. Do sada, najčešće korišćeni materijali u endodonciji, i ujedno materijali koji najviše i obećavaju u endodontskom tretmanu­ i retretmanu su bili kalcijum-silikatni cementi. Međutim, u skladu sa nedostacima ovog materijala i neuspesima tretmana, javio se novi materijal Biodentinetm. On je napravljen na kalcijum-silikatnoj tehnologiji sa odličnom biokompatibilnošću kao i karakteristikama u vezi sa aplikacijom materijala. Može da se koristi kod različitih indikacija, uključujući supstituciju dentina i endodontsku terapiju. Prikaz slučajeva. Klinički slučajevi pokazuju odličan potencijal lečenja nakon tretmana­ Biodentinomtm. Zaključak. Biosilikatna tehnologija veoma obećava najviše zbog hemijskih karakteristika i lake kliničke manipulacije. Kratko radno vreme i velika mehanička jačina čini Biodentinetm materijalom koji je jednostavan za korišćenje, visoke biokompatibilnosti i sa velikim opsegom indikacija.",

AB  - Background/Aim. Elderly residents in nursing homes have a great risk of periodontal and tooth diseases. Improving oral health can also improve residents' general health and quality of life. The objective of our study was to investigate oral health related quality of life of institutionalized elderly in Serbia using Geriatric Oral Health Assessment Index (GOHAI). Methods. The Serbian version of the GOHAI questionnaire was developed in accordance with the recommended backward-forward method. A total of 301 participants completed the Serbian version of the GOHAI questionnaire. The questionnaire sought information about sociodemographic characteristics and self-reported perception of general and oral health. Clinical examination included assessment of periodontal and dental status. Reliability, internal consistency, and concurrent and convergent validity of GOHAI scores were examined. Results. There were 197 female and 104 male participants with the average age of 78.6 (SD ± 7.8) and average time spent in nursing home 4.9 (SD ± 4.7) years. The average score of the GOHAI was 48.4 (SD ± 8.4). Low GOHAI scores were associated with perceptions of poor oral and general health. Cronbach's alpha coefficient for the Serbian version of GOHAI was 0.79. This instrument showed a high level of internal consistency and homogeneity between questions. The respondents who perceived that they needed dental treatment at the time had significantly lower GOHAI scores. A total of 48.5% of the participants reported 'always' having difficulties when chewing. On the other hand, a small number of participants (0.3%) used medications 'always' to relieve dental pain. Conclusion. The Serbian version of the GOHAI showed acceptable reliability and validity. The GOHAI final score was considered low, indicating low oral health self-perception by the institutionalized elderly in Serbia.

Metode. Srpska verzija upitnika GOHAI razvijena je u skladu s preporučenom backward-forward metodom. Ukupno 301 ispitanik učestvovao je u studiji. Upitnik je sadržao pitanja o sociodemografskim karakteristikama i sopstvenoj percepciji oralnog i opšteg zdravlja. Klinički pregled uključivao je procenu periodontalnog i dentalnog statusa. Ispitivani su pouzdanost, interna konzistentnost i konkurentna i konvergentna valjanost upitnika GOHAI. Rezultati. Ispitano je 197 ženskih i 104 muška ispitanika, prosečne starosti od 78,6 (SD ± 7,8) godina sa prosečnim vremenom provedenim u domu od 4,9 (SD ± 4,7) godina. Prosečna vrednost skora GOHAI bila je 48,4 (SD ± 8,4). Nizak GOHAI bio je povezan s percepcijama lošeg oralnog i opšteg zdravlja. Koeficijent Cronbach alfa za srpsku verziju GOHAI iznosio je 0,79. Ovaj instrument je pokazao visok nivo interne konzistentnosti i homogenosti između pitanja. Ispitanici koji su imali potrebu za stomatološkom intervencijom pokazali su značajno niže GOHAI rezultate. Ukupno 48,5% ispitanika imalo je 'uvek' poteškoća u toku žvakanja. S druge strane, mali broj ispitanika (0,3%) 'uvek' koristi lekove za ublažavanje zubobolje. Zaključak. Srpska verzija GOHAI pokazala je prihvatljivu pouzdanost i validnost. Konačni GOHAI rezultat je nizak, što ukazuje na loše oralno zdravlje i sa njim povezan kvalitet života korisnika domova za stara lica u Srbiji.

AB  - Association between dementia and tooth loss has been shown although the nature of that association is not clear. It has also been shown that risk of dementia was increased in apolipoprotein E4 allele carriers. The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of APOE alleles and their association with the dental status in elderly demented patients. Dental status of 67 patients with dementia was recorded. DNA was isolated from buccal swabs and genotyping was done by PCR-RFLP. The majority of participants had E3/E4 genotype (55.2%) and these heterozygotes were significantly more frequent than any other genotype (p lt 0.001). There was no significant association between dental status and genotype. However, partial edentulousness with very few teeth in both jaws (1-9 teeth) was significantly more frequent among demented patients with E3/E4 genotype (p=0.021). Patients with Alzheimer disease most frequently had E3/E4 genotype and had very few or no teeth.

Assistance of caregivers in maintaininig good oral hygiene besides improving oral health can improve of residents general health and the quality of their lives. The aim of this study was to examine the attitudes of caregivers and knowledge about oral health, as well as the practice regarding oral care they apply at nursing homes in Serbia. Methods. The survey was conducted at the Gerontology Center Belgrade, consisting of four nursing homes located in the urban area. The study included 58 caregivers. They were contacted on working days, in all work shifts, during January, February and March of 2013. They were asked to fill in a self-administered questionnaire consisting of 26 closed-type questions. Results. The care-givers mostly considered that it was very important to take care of oral health of the residents, but 69% responded that the level of their oral health was low or very low. As the main barriers to oral hygiene maintenance, the caregivers indicated lack of time. The caregivers had more knowledge about periodontal disease than about the main cause of caries and its prevention. Formal medical education had the influence on the knowledge about oral diseases. Oral hygiene procedures carried out by the mayority of caregivers were denture cleaning and tooth brushing. Conclusion. The caregivers were aware of the limitations in everyday oral care of nursing homes residents in Serbia, although solving these problems requires the involvement of the entire public health service.

AB  - Pain and discomfort during dental interventions caused by high-speed dental burs are the most frequent reasons for avoiding dental visits. Numerous possibilities have been offered in the last decade aiming to replace burs for caries removal, one of them is chemo-mechanical method of caries elimination. The aim of this study was to analyze micromorphological changes caused by Carisolv on sound, demineralized and carious (softened) dentin using SEM. Material and Methods Study included 30 teeth (20 intact and 10 with carious lesions) extracted for orthodontic reasons. Carisolv™ system (MediTeam, Sweden) that contains Carisolv gel and specific nickel-titanium hand instruments was used for chemo-mechanical caries elimination. In our study only Carisolv gel was applied on sound, demineralized and carious dentin for 20 min. Dentin surface was analyzed using scanning electronic microscope (SEM). Results SEM showed that Carisolv gel affected soft carious dentin only with no changes on sound dentin regardless of demineralization status. Conclusion Carisolv did not affect sound and demineralized dentin while it selectively dissolved carious dentin.

AB  - Introduction. As the number of institutionalized elderly in the world increases, so does the need for good medical and dental care for this group of people. The aim of this research was to determine the oral hygiene level, dental, periodontal and prosthetic status of intitutionalized elderly persons of over 65 years, in three residental homes for elderly in Belgrade. Materijal and Method. Three hundred and one persons were interviewed and clinically examined. The questionaire included sociodemographic data, habits concerning oral hygiene, subjective assessment of one's own health and prosthetic status. Clinical examination determined dental and parodontal status by using DFMT and CPITN index. Condition of oral soft tissues was also estimated. Existing dentures were evaluated in terms of retention, stabilization, attrition, hygiene, and need for repairment. Results. Of all examined people, 16.6% did not maintain oral hygiene; 2.3% received help with maintaing oral hygiene, although 36.5% was dependant on other people's care. Average DFMT was 26.36. CPITN was 2.23 on average. No denture and a need for one was observed in 41.1% examined institutionalized persons. Fifty-five point two percent of dentures needed repairment, and denture hygiene was poor in 50.0% of cases. Among all examined, 11.9% were edentulous and had no denture. Conclusion. To conclude, institutionalized elderly do not receive help in maintaining oral hygiene, alhough the majority is dependent on other people's care. Also, there is a large number of missing teeth and a need for complete parodontal and prosthetic treatment of most examined persons. It is essential to improve dental health care in residential homes for elderly.

Cilj rada bio je ispitati nivo oralne higijene, zatim dentalni, parodontalni i protetski status institucionalizovanih osoba starosti preko 65 godina, u tri staračka doma u Beogradu. Materijal i metod. Anketirana je i pregledana 301 osoba. Anketa je obuhvatala sociodemografske podatke, navike u održavanju oralne higijene, subjektivnu procenu opšteg zdravstvenog stanja i stomatoprotetskog statusa. Kliničkim pregledom utvrđen je status zuba i parodontalnih tkiva korištenjem DFMT i CPITN indeksa. Evidentirano je i zdravlje mekih tkiva usta. Postojeće proteze ocenjene su u pogledu retencije, stabilizacije, abradiranosti, higijene i neophodnosti reparature. Rezultati. Od ukupnog broja pregledanih, 16,6% nije održavalo oralnu higijenu. Pomoć u održavanju oralne higijene dobijalo je 2,3% ispitanika, iako je 36,5% bilo zavisno od tuđe nege. Prosečan DMFT iznosio je 26,36. CPITN indeks prosečno je iznosio 2,23. Protetski nije bilo zbrinuto 45,1% pregledanih osoba koje su imale potrebu za protezom. Reparaturu je zahtevalo 55,2% proteza, a higijena proteze bila je loša u 50,0% slučajeva. Od ukupnog broja pregledanih osoba, 11,9% bilo je bezubo i nije imalo totalne proteze. Zaključak. Može se zaključiti da stare institucionalizovane osobe ne dobijaju pomoć u održavanju oralne higijene, iako su u velikom broju zavisne od tuđe nege. Takođe, prisutan je veliki broj nedostajućih zuba i potreba za kompletnom parodontološkom i protetskom terapijom većine osoba. Neophodno je poboljšati stomatološku zdravstvenu zaštitu pacijenata u staračkim domovima.

AB  - Introduction. Double telescopic crowns are connecting elements of partial dentures and are considered to be prosthetic devices of high aesthetic and biological value. Their basic drawback is the assessment of retention force value which has to be strong enough to balance the opposite forces but, nevertheless, must not result in harming the periodontal tissue of retention teeth while taking the denture off. The retention force is the highest immediately after the denture's construction and is progressively declining until the end of the 'settling in phase', i.e. until the retention force value becomes well-established. Aim of the study was the measurement of the overall retention force of completed telescopic dentures and a survey of 'settling in phase' duration. Methods. The measuring was conducted on 20 telescopic dentures consisting of 2, 3 or 4 telescopic crowns made of gold alloy type IV and executed by dynamometer. Results. An optimal retention force was detected in only 37% of telescopic dentures. An insufficient retention force was observed in 16%, while in the remaining 47% an excessive force was detected. In the largest number of dentures (35%) the settling in phase began after 33 cycles, which shows that this phase takes on average 10,6 days. Conclusion. The 'settling in phase', during which retention force becomes stabilized, is completed in the first ten days after the delivery of the completed telescopic denture.
AB  - Uvod. Dvostruke teleskop krune predstavljaju vezne elemente parcijalne proteze i smatraju se zubnim nadoknadama visokih estetskih i bioloških vrednosti. Njihov osnovni nedostatak predstavlja procena veličine retencione sile, koja mora biti dovoljno velika da uravnotežava suprotne sile a da sa druge strane, prilikom skidanja, ne dovodi do oštećenja parodontalnog tkiva zuba nosača. Retenciona sila je najveća odmah po izradi proteze i ona progresivno opada sve dok se ne završi tzv. 'faza uhodavanja', odnosno dok vrednost retencione sile ne postane ustaljena vrednost. Cilj istraživanja bio je merenje ukupne retencione sile gotovih teleskop proteza i ispitivanje vremenskog trajanja 'faze uhodavanja'. Materijal i metod. Merenja si vršena na 20 teleskop proteza, koje su u svom sastavu imale 2, 3 ili 4 teleskop krune izrađene od legure zlata tip IV. Merenja su vršena pomoću dinamometra. Rezultati. Kod samo 37% teleskop proteza registrovana je optimalna retenciona sila. Kod 16% registrovana je nedovoljna retenciona sila, dok je kod ostalih 47% registrovana prekomerna retenciona sila. Kod najvećeg broja proteza (35%), faza uhodavanja nastupila je nakon 33 ciklusa, što znači da je potrebno u proseku 10,6 dana za 'fazu uhodavanja'. Zaključak. 'Faza uhodavanja' tokom koje dolazi do ustaljenja retencione sile u proseku se završava u okviru prvih deset dana nakon predaje završene teleskop proteze.

AB  - This study aimed to assess the prevalence and the severity of oral impacts and the relationships between oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and clinical measures of oral function in a sample of older adults in Bosnia. The sample comprised 261 community-dwelling adults of >= 65 yr of age. Participants were randomly drawn from three senior day-centres for elderly people. Data were collected using clinical examination and a questionnaire. The OHRQoL was assessed through the Oral Impacts on Daily Performances (OIDP) measure, in terms of the prevalence, intensity, and extent of oral impacts. Overall, 55.2% reported at least one oral impact in the last 6 months. Difficulty eating (43.3%) and difficulty speaking (34.1%) were the most common impacts. These were also the most severely affected performances, while going out and enjoying the contact of other people were the least severe. A higher number of natural teeth, natural occluding pairs, and anterior and posterior occluding pairs were all significantly associated with a lower prevalence of oral impacts and correlated with the OIDP score, even after adjusting for sociodemographic factors. The prevalence of oral impacts was high and there was a strong and consistent association between OHRQoL and clinical dental indicators of function.

Overall, 55.2% reported at least one oral impact in the last 6 months. Difficulty eating (43.3%) and difficulty speaking (34.1%) were the most common impacts. These were also the most severely affected performances, while going out and enjoying the contact of other people were the least severe. A higher number of natural teeth, natural occluding pairs, and anterior and posterior occluding pairs were all significantly associated with a lower prevalence of oral impacts and correlated with the OIDP score, even after adjusting for sociodemographic factors. The prevalence of oral impacts was high and there was a strong and consistent association between OHRQoL and clinical dental indicators of function.",

AB  - Correctly indicated and accurately made, partial denture with double crowns is a dental restoration of the highest biological, prophylactic and aesthetic values. However, insufficient knowledge of double crowns systems, as well as errors and omissions in the clinical and laboratory work invalidate this type of restoration and can have negative effects on the supporting tissues. Double crowns may come in form of telescope crowns and conical crowns. Double crowns as connecting elements should provide: retention, stabilization, physiological transmission of occlusal loads through the abutment teeth as well as the prophylactic value, comfort for the patient, durability and aesthetics. In order to achieve these qualities, it is necessary, among other things: to make proper indication, to execute adequate tooth preparation (grinding), to make the choice of materials for the construction, to establish proper connection of the outer crown and the metal framework and to choose a suitable aesthetic material for veneering. It is necessary to understand the mechanism of double crowns retention so that the optimal value of the retention force which should be 5-9 N per each patrix can be established. Insufficient retention force will reduce the comfort for the patient because would make the separation too easy, whereas an excessive force may negatively affect the periodontium of the abutment teeth. Retention force and durability of restorations with telescope and conical crowns depend also on the characteristics of the material they are made of. The most frequently used are gold and palladium-silver alloys. In recent years, titanium and the combination of ceramic and galvanized gold are used. Prophylactic effect of double crowns is also provided by a proper planning that will enable the physiological transfer of the forces on the abutment teeth and the health of free gingiva. A special challenge is to plan the connection of outer crown with the metal framework. The best results showed optimized approximal extensions. Double crown production demands experience of a clinician and dental technician in the performance of clinical and laboratory phases. A removal of sufficient tooth tissue during grinding in order to avoid getting oversized artificial teeth and a formation of the appropriate demarcation line which will provide sufficient stability of the system in the gingival area represent a particular challenge. Errors in laboratory work can be avoided with a good knowledge of the milling proceedings, a selection of a suitable material for the external crowns modeling and acquisition of precision castings.

AB  - Introduction: Attachments are precise interlocking devices. They consist of one component which is fixed to the abutment, and the other is integrated into a removable part of the complex denture. The main roles of attachment are in retention and stabilization of denture and to guide the denture into its proper position. Adequate retention of attachments is one of the main demonstrations of successfully made prosthetic device. The aim of this paper is to explain the mechanisms which reduce the retention force of removable partial dentures with attachments. Material and methods: The search strategy applied was a combination of Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms and free text words, including the following keywords 'wear', 'retention' and 'attachment'. The selected studies were analyzed with regard to wear parameters, type of attachment and used material. A total of fourteen studies were included. The selected articles were published in the past ten years. Results: These articles have provided evidence that the majority of attachment systems demonstrate a reduction in their retentive force. Wear has been unquestionably implicated as the etiologic factor for the loss of retention. Findings from the literature have also implicated several factors that influence the retentive force of the attachment system and its wear features and accelerate the retention loss. Conclusion: Proper indication, suitable materials, accuracy in casting and other laboratory procedures and motivation of patients make attachment retention reduction as little as possible.
