DE ANDRADE LIMA CHAVES, C. et al. Patients profile rehabilitated with dental prosthesis assisted by the health public service in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.6, pp.347-353. ISSN 2340-3152.

The prevalence of gender and age related pattern of the different types of prosthetic restorations are important variables to be estimated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the profile of age and gender in patients rehabilitated with dental prostheses on School of Dentistry during five years. Were evaluated 638 records of patients who received fixed prosthesis (FP), removable partial (RP) or total dentures (T). Rehabilitated patients with RP had their prostheses classified into dental-mucous-supported (DM) or tooth-supported (D). To analyze the results, patients were divided into 2 groups: A) >50 years or B) <50 years. Data were statistically analyzed by Fisher's exact test or chi Square (p<0.05). No statistical significance relation to age and types of prostheses was observed. On RP, 47% was D and 53% DM, there was no statistically significant difference. It was possible to conclude that the rehabilitation of greater number of the teeth increases with age and is prevalent in all periods of adulthood, especially in women.
