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)
PURPOSE The objective of this retrospective study was to compare the incidence of chipping of implant-supported, all-ceramic, and metal-ceramic single crowns. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred fifty-three patients (51.7% male, mean age 55.0 years) received 232 cemented implant-supported single crowns. One hundred and seventy-nine crowns had a metal(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)
OBJECTIVE Objective of this study was to evaluate the incidence of complications in dental implants and abutment teeth used for combined tooth-implant- and solely implant-supported double crown-retained removable dental prostheses (RDPs). MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients were selected from a prospective clinical study. Seventy-three RDPs retained by 234(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate theefficacy of a single dose of a second-generationcephalosporine to prevent postinterventional infectionand to identify risk factors for postinterventionalinfection in patients receiving implantation or revisionof a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt(TIPS). Eighty-four patients (105(More)
Time-saving, efficient dental treatment is essential for patients in poor dental condition. This clinical report describes a systematic technique for restoration of the visibly-destroyed dentition of a long-term bulimia nervosa patient, including occlusal vertical dimension increase, with composite resin core foundations and prosthetic rehabilitation with(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively compare the fixation modalities semipermanent and permanent for all cemented single crowns and Fixed Dental Prostheses (FDPs) placed at the Department of Prosthodontics in the years 2002 to 2010 with regard to the incidence of survival and complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred forty-one patients (48.5% male, mean age(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the survival and success of early-loaded implants placed in the intraforaminal area of the edentulous mandible, and the survival of the implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDP). MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-seven patients (18.9% male, mean age 64.5 years) with edentulous lower jaws were treated with(More)
The purpose of this study is to compare success rates of dual-viscosity impressions for two types of mixing techniques of the polyether elastomeric impression material. Additionally, influencing parameters on the success rates should be evaluated. The expectation was that there would be no difference between the success rates for the two mixing techniques.(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of simultaneous bone-augmentation procedures, and their combination, on the survival of dental implants and on the incidence of complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS Within a retrospective analysis, 958 implants placed in 404 patients (mean age 58.18) were selected from a prospective(More)
