OBJECTIVES The aim was to test whether or not zirconia abutments exhibit the same survival and technical/biological outcome as titanium abutments. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-two patients receiving 40 single-tooth implants in canine and posterior regions were included. The implant sites were randomly assigned to 20 zirconia and 20 titanium abutments. All-ceramic and metal-ceramic crowns were fabricated. At baseline, 6, 12 and 36 months, the reconstructions were examined for technical and… CONTINUE READING
