Abstract


The relentless pursuit of Dentistry in rehabilitating patients, provided an improvement in the quality of life of the population. This study aims to demonstrate the importance of the use of Removable Temporary Partial Dentures to of the Overlay type in the oral rehabilitation of patients through a review of the literature. It was used the main electronic databases of cataloging bibliography (Pubmed, Scielo, BVS), in the period 2000 to 2016, employing the following descriptors: Vertical Dimension, Removable Partial Prosthetic, Coating of Dentures. Were identified 35 articles, 16 of which were excluded because they did not fit the established criteria for inclusion, resulting in a total of nineteen 19 selected articles. The removable partial prosthetic overlay is areversible treatment option, the changes in structures of the tooth remnants are minimal, clinically it is easy to be performed, in addition to the reduced cost and time to be smaller. Although there are benefits, care should be taken with the oral hygiene of the prosthesis, topical applications of fluoride and frequent visits to the dentist. It is concluded that the PPR-overlay are used for patients with accentuated dental wear associated with the change of the vertical dimension of the occlusion, on the other hand, studies still need to be carried out in order to ensure the effectiveness and feasibility of this type of prosthesis, once, they are not applicable in all clinical cases.
