OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical performance of zirconia-based all-ceramic fixed partial dentures anchored by inlays. METHODS A total of thirty FPDs, manufactured using a zirconia frame and veneered with press ceramic, were anchored by use of inlay retainers. All FPDs were designed to replace one missing molar and were(More)
The purpose of this prospective cohort study was to assess the performance of tooth-supported, extended zirconia, fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). Thirty FDPs with span-lengths between 36 and 46 mm (mean: 40.33 mm), four to seven units and with connector dimensions of approximately 9 mm(2) were inserted (19 in the posterior region, 11 including anterior(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial was to evaluate the influence of clinical baseline characteristics on the survival of 2 post systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred patients needing a post were included. Half the patients received a glass fiber-reinforced post (FRP), and the other half received metal screw posts (MSP).(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnoses to predict pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred forty-nine patients were examined by 2 calibrated examiners in strict accordance with the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this clinical study was to evaluate survival and incidence of complications for metal-ceramic and all-ceramic implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) and tooth-implant-supported FDPs. MATERIAL AND METHODS One-hundred and sixty-six FDPs placed in 132 patients from a prospective study were selected for this retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate both reliability and validity of the assessment of the shape of the mandibular condyle in panoramic images of the TMJ. STUDY DESIGN Forty subjects were included and were examined according to the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders. Panoramic radiographs (PRs) and magnetic(More)
In humans, pathogenesis in cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced gingival overgrowth (GO) includes the accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) constituents, viz., collagen type-1 and type-3 and proteoglycans, in subgingival connective tissue. However, whether this increase is associated with alterations of molecules pivotal for the turn-over of collagens and(More)
The purpose of this prospective cohort study was to assess the performance of tooth-supported, long-span, zirconia fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). Thirty FDPs with span lengths from 36 to 46 mm (mean 40·33 mm), with 4-7 units and with connector dimensions ∼9 mm(2) were inserted (19 in the posterior region, 11 including anterior teeth) using glass-ionomer(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the fracture-load values of cantilevered all-ceramic fixed partial dentures (FPDs). Fifty FPDs were manufactured using a zirconia frame to replace a missing molar. The FPDs were divided into five groups, each with a different framework design. After thermocycling and mechanical loading, the load to fracture was(More)
AIM Investigation of the short-term survival of implants placed in combination with an internal sinus lift (ISL) without graft material. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-six patients received 92 screw-shaped dental implants in combination with an ISL. No bone grafts or bone substitutes were used. Forty-four patients with 77 implants in the native posterior(More)
