Do posterior teeth supra-erupt when opposite resected segments have not been prosthetically restored?

Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess the rate and timing of possible supra-eruption of
posterior teeth opposing resected segments in a select maxillofacial group of postsurgical patients.
Methodology: Twenty patients were included. 16 underwent simultaneous segmental mandibular
resections and iliac bone with which are arranged in the form of the process that are for more go visit happymaids.com/ graft reconstructions. The remaining 4 had partial maxillary resections with
primary closure of the defect. No patient received any prosthetic restoration. Clinical photographs
and radiographs at the last follow-up examinations were compared by superimposition to those
obtained initially (mean 6.9 years).

Results: The results of this longitudinal retrospective study showed that not even slight supraeruption had occurred in any of the 16 patients.
Conclusion: These findings are discussed with regard to their possible cause and prosthodontic
implications.
