Purpose:We analyzed complications and failures of final full-arch implant-supported rehabilitations, comparing resin and zirconia prosthesis materials. Prostheses were retrospectively followed up for 5 years. Materials and Methods:One hundred twenty-five patients who received one or two four to six implant-supported immediately loaded full-arch rehabilitations in resin (166 prostheses) or zirconia (48 prostheses) were analyzed. Results:One hundred thirteen patients (53 men, 60 women), with 214… 

Implant-Supported Immediately Loaded Complete Arch Rehabilitations with a Mean Follow-up of 10 Years: A Prospective Clinical Study.

Despite the number of reparable mechanical complications, the results confirmed the long-lasting features of both PFZ and all-resin complete arch fixed implant-supported prostheses over a 10-year period.

Implant‐supported cantilevered fixed dental rehabilitations in fully edentulous patients: Systematic review of the literature. Part II

There is evidence that cantilever can be successful treatment in fully edentulous patients and which complications are reported for this type of treatment.

Implant supported cantilevered fixed dental rehabilitations in partially edentulous patients: Systematic review of the literature. Part I.

There is evidence that cantilever can be successful treatment in partially edentulous patients and in two adjacent edENTulous sites, data are not yet sufficient.

Clinical outcomes of full arch fixed implant-supported zirconia prostheses: A systematic review.

Current evidence indicates that zirconia fixed complete dentures have a very low failure rate in the short term, but have a substantial rate of minor complications related to chipping of veneered porcelain.

Framework Fracture of Zirconia Supported Full Arch Implant Rehabilitation: A Retrospective Evaluation of Cantilever Length and Distal Cross-Sectional Connection Area in 140 Patients Over an Up-To-7 Year Follow-Up Period.

Zirconia IFCDPs may be reliable medium-term solutions if some dimensional parameters are followed, and the ratios between the cantilever length and cross-sectional connector area should be less than 0.51, while the ratio between the Cantileverlength and screw access opening length should be more than 1.48.

Clinical outcomes of partial and full‐arch all‐ceramic implant‐supported fixed dental prostheses. A systematic review and meta‐analysis

All-ceramic implant-supported P- and FA-FDPs comprising veneered zirconia frameworks showed high survival but clinically inacceptable fracture rates of the veneering ceramic, and their suitability with regard to this indication and a successful long-term outcome needs to be further evaluated.

Framework Materials for Full-Arch Implant-Supported Rehabilitations: A Systematic Review of Clinical Studies

This systematic review investigated the clinical outcomes of frameworks made of different materials in patients with implant-supported full-arch prostheses and found high implant and prosthetic cumulative survival rates were recorded by all included studies.

Patient-Reported and Clinical Outcomes of Implant-Supported Fixed Complete Dental Prostheses: A Comparison of Metal-Acrylic, Milled Zirconia, and Retrievable Crown Prostheses.

Although most patients were extremely satisfied, some continued to be bothered by material bulk and felt that maintenance of oral hygiene was excessively time-consuming and all IFCDP designs resulted in high OHQoL and patient satisfaction.

The considerations related to diverse implant components and connections from different implant manufacturers, choice of favorable implant-abutment design, technique for mitigation, and importance of passive fit for zirconia CAFIP are described.



Implant-supported full-arch zirconia-based mandibular fixed dental prostheses. Eight-year results from a clinical pilot study

Results from this 8-year pilot study suggest that implant-supported full-arch zirconia-based FDPs can be an acceptable treatment alternative and patient satisfaction was excellent despite the veneering material fractures.

Immediate rehabilitation of the completely edentulous jaw with fixed prostheses supported by either upright or tilted implants: a multicenter clinical study.

The preliminary results of this study suggest that immediate rehabilitation of the edentulous maxilla and mandible by a hybrid prosthesis supported by 6 or 4 implants, respectively, may represent a viable treatment alternative with respect to more demanding surgical procedures.

A retrospective analysis of early and immediately loaded osseotite implants in cross-arch rehabilitations in edentulous maxillas and mandibles up to 7 years.

The Osseotite implants offer a predictable long-term outcome in terms of implant survival and stable peri-implant bone under immediate loading even in grafted bone, however, the high incidence of technical repair because of fractures of the semipermanent provisionals requires attention because it may be negative from a cost-benefit perspective.

A clinical study of edentulous patients rehabilitated according to the "all on four" immediate function protocol.

The same clinical outcome was seen for patients treated with the so-called All on Four protocol, regardless of whether the acrylic resin restorations were reinforced with metal.

Prosthodontic complications in a prospective clinical trial of single-stage implants at 36 months.

Complications in prosthodontic complications in a trial of 51 patients with prostheses supported by single-stage implants were associated with laboratory-related procedures rather than the implant system itself.

Immediate rehabilitation of the mandible with fixed full prosthesis supported by axial and tilted implants: interim results of a single cohort prospective study.

The present preliminary data suggest that immediate loading associated with tilted implants could be considered a viable treatment modality for the mandible.

Five-year results of fixed implant-supported rehabilitations with distal cantilevers for the edentulous mandible.

Fixed implant-supported rehabilitation with distal cantilever resulted in a reliable treatment modality over the 5-year observation period and the application of strict criteria for treatment success resulted in an overall treatment success rate of 86.7%.

Prospective 10-year cohort study based on a randomized, controlled trial (RCT) on implant-supported full-arch maxillary prostheses. part II: prosthetic outcomes and maintenance.

Fracture or wear of the reconstruction materials were considered predictable risks when using resin-based suprastructure materials and status of opposing dentition and length of cantilevers did not confer additional risk.

Immediate rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible with screw type implants: results after up to 10 years of clinical function.

The results of this study indicate that in selected patients immediate restoration of dental implants in the edentulous mandible will achieve a clinically predictable outcome.
