Piezographie in the service of edentulous: clinical case report

AlaEddine Mahfoudhi, Oumaima Tayari, Amani Mizouri, Jamila Jaouadi



With senescence, edentulous patients present unfavorable clinical situations following the continued resorption of alveolar bone and the inevitable narrowing of the prosthetic corridor. That’s why rehabilitation with removable complete prosthesis presents a difficult challenge for the dentist. In this connection, the use of the piezographic technique, a promising therapeutic approach, makes it possible to better respect the physiology of the elderly patient while ensuring a compromise of retention, prosthesis stability and comfort. The aim of this manuscript is to present the different stages of realizing a removable complete denture resulting from an impression of the bearing surfaces and a piezographic recording of the prosthetic corridor through a clinical case.  


Keywords: Completely edentulous, mandibular resorption, piezographic, neutral zone, prosthetic corridor, impression.
