Clinical fit of all-ceramic three-unit fixed partial dentures, generated with three different CAD/CAM systems.
In this study, the hypothesis was tested that the marginal and internal fit of CAD/CAM fabricated all-ceramic three-unit fixed partial dentures (FPDs) can be as good as in metal-ceramic FPDs.Expand

Radiographic evaluation of marginal bone levels adjacent to parallel-screw cylinder machined-neck implants and rough-surfaced microthreaded implants using digitized panoramic radiographs.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this split-mouth study was to compare macro- and microstructure implant surfaces at the marginal bone level during a stress-free healing period and under functional loading.Expand

Overdenture attachment selection and the loading of implant and denture-bearing area. Part 2: A methodical study using five types of attachment.
In general, an implant is loaded via axial and horizontal forces. Besides this, moment loading can also occur. The aim of this study was to investigate how different prosthetic connectors withExpand

Loading of bone surrounding implants through three-unit fixed partial denture fixation: a finite-element analysis based on in vitro and in vivo strain measurements.
Implant-borne fixed partial dentures (FPDs), whether cementable or screwable superstructures, ought to display a true passive fit. The objective of this in vivo-based finite-element analysis is,Expand
