OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study was the macroscopic and microscopic failure analysis of fractured zirconia dental implants. METHODS Thirteen fractured one-piece zirconia implants (Z-Look3) out of 170 inserted implants with an average in situ period of 36.75±5.34 months (range from 20 to 56 months, median 38 months) were prepared for macroscopic and microscopic (scanning electron microscopy [SEM]) failure analysis. These 170 implants were inserted in 79 patients. The patient… CONTINUE READING
