[Preliminary evaluation of plastic crown restoration supported by osseointegrated implants].

Abstract

This study was to evaluate the feasibility of plastic crown restoration supported by osseointegrated implants. The following conclusions were drawn from this study: plastic crown gave better biomechanical consideration than porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crown in osseointegrated prostheses, but plastic crown gave worse wearability, tensile strength, compression strength and flexuaral strength than PFM crown. After restoration the disadvantages of the plastic crown were beyond the clinical acceptable range. It showed plastic crown designed dental prothetic implantation was unfeasible.
