The 106 patients who have old complete dentures came to the Dental(More)
This study evaluated the marginal adaptation and fracture resistance of CAD/CAM-fabricated zirconia crowns luted using different luting agents. Twenty crown restorations were produced using IPS ZirCAD zirconium oxide blocks (IZC), and another 20 using Lava zirconium oxide blocks (L). Ten teeth were used as control. Luting agents used were an etch-and-rinse(More)
PURPOSE The effects of implant angulation, impression material, and variation in width of the arch curvature on transfer models were evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three edentulous maxillary epoxy resin models were fabricated, and six internal-connection implant analogs were placed in different locations and different angulations in each model. In the(More)

The aim of this research was to evaluate internal and marginal adaptation of lithium disilicate partial crowns fabricated using IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max CAD systems. Forty maxillary first molars were divided into two groups. The margins were located above the cementoenamel junction mesially and below it distally. The adaptation of the restoration was(More)
Esthetic reconstruction of severe soft and hard tissue deficiencies is the utmost challenge in implant dentistry. To prevent postoperative bone resorption and to control the amount of hard and soft tissue volume, distraction osteogenesis followed by immediate implant placement has been proven to be a promising combined technique. The aim of this report is(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of different attachment systems with implant-retained overdentures on maximum bite force and muscle activity using electromyography (EMG). BACKGROUND Denture retention and stability is of considerable interest in prosthetic dentistry. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients were examined: 15 edentulous patients treated(More)
