BACKGROUND Zirconia (ZrO(2)) might be an alternative material to titanium (Ti) for dental implant fabrication. However, no data are available on the fracture strength of one-piece ZrO(2) oral implants. PURPOSE The objective of this study was to evaluate the fracture strength of ZrO(2) implants after exposure to the artificial mouth. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred twenty ZrO(2) and Ti implants were used. The Ti implants were divided into two control groups (A and B). ZrO(2) implants… CONTINUE READING
