Abstract Edentulous patients may be restored with conventional dentures (C/C), implant-supported overdentures (IOD) or implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (IFDP). Null-hypotheses: chewing efficiency, maximum voluntary bite force (MBF) and masseter muscle thickness (MMT) are lower in patients with C/IOD compared with the patients with bimaxillary IFDPs. Both groups perform better than C/C and are inferior to fully dentate controls.
