Abstract

The aim of this study was to find the correlation between the number, type, and placement of symmetric functional tooth units and the nutritional status using body mass index (BMI) and Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) in patients with both maxillary and mandibular removable partial dentures. A randomized study was conducted at the Clinic for Prosthodontics, School of Dentistry, University of Belgrade, Serbia, followed by determination of number of functional tooth units. After insertion of the prostheses, the nutritional status was assessed, using BMI and MNA form. Nutritional status was reviewed 12 months after prosthetic treatment. Number of teeth and age were analyzed using analysis of variance and t test. For other variables such as BMI baseline, BMI follow-up, MNA baseline, MNA follow-up, change in BMI, and change in MNA, Kruskal-Wallis Test or Mann-Whitney Test were used. The results on the MNA changes showed that patients with symmetric natural functional tooth units had significantly higher values (2.9 ± 0.8) compared with patients without natural functional tooth units (1.9 ± 0.6) or with asymmetric natural functional tooth units (1.6 ± 0.4). Patients with asymmetric artificial functional tooth units had significantly lower change in MNA (1.9 ± 0.4) than those with symmetric artificial functional tooth units (2.6 ± 0.9). The findings of this study suggest that adequate rehabilitation with symmetric positioning of the functional tooth units can improve the nutritional status of partially edentulous patients.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 September 2016.
All research outputs
#22,830,981
of 25,457,858 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Prosthodontics
#136
of 187 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#308,693
of 348,542 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Prosthodontics
#3
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,457,858 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 187 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 348,542 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
