BACKGROUND: Fixed prosthodontic treatment (crowns, fixed dental prostheses (FDPs), complete arch prostheses) involves the use of several different materials to replace missing tooth structure. Traditionally full metal or metal frameworks veneered with ceramic (metal-ceramic (MC)) have been used. In recent years several different metal-free systems have become available to clinicians and patients. In general, metal-free restorations should allow practitioners to better reproduce natural tooth colour, avoiding shortcomings of MC restorations...

BACKGROUND: The continuous development in dental processing ensures new opportunities in the field of fixed prosthodontics in a complete virtual environment without any physical model situations. The aim was to compare fully digitalized workflows to conventional and/or mixed analog-digital workflows for the treatment with tooth-borne or implant-supported fixed reconstructions. METHODS: A PICO strategy was executed using an electronic (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Google Scholar) plus manual search up to 2016-09-16 focusing on RCTs investigating complete digital workflows in fixed prosthodontics with regard to economics or esthetics or patient-centered outcomes with or without follow-up or survival/success rate analysis as well as complication assessment of at least 1 year under function...

Prosthodontically driven biomechanical considerations are essential for longterm successful outcomes in dental implant therapy. Correct protocols seek to preclude potential consequences associated with functional and parafunctional occlusal overload such as screw loosening, component fracture, compromised marginal bone maintenance, and the integrity of the induced osseointegration response. Other concerns also need to be addressed, more especially when other implants are selected, for example: bridge insertion torque (BIT) in cases of immediate loading, cantilever length-anteroposterior spread ratio (CL-AP), overall crown-to-implant ratio (oCIR), total bone-to-implant surface area (tBICA), and the status of the opposing dentition...

BACKGROUND: During the last three decades dental implants have become increasingly used in partially edentulous periodontally compromised patients. The type of bacteria in the peri-implant sulcus is influenced by the periodontal bacteria present on the surfaces of the remaining teeth. Peri-implant sulci of partially edentulous individuals harbour more motile rods and spirochetes than those of fully edentulous individuals. If Peri-implantitis arises, it may lead to implant failure. This complication occurs more frequently in patients with poor oral hygiene...

The role and function of provisional restorations has changed significantly in recent years. The reasons include the improvement of material properties and the CAD/CAM production option using polymer blanks, which are offered by various manufacturers. Besides their classic indications in crown and bridge prosthodontics, provisional restorations are now used for soft-tissue management, preparation and adaptation in complex restorations that include changes in vertical relations, and as mock-ups in esthetic dentistry...

The main reasons for loss of autotransplanted teeth are different from those involved in natural teeth loss. The aim of this study was to investigate which procedures were employed to treat spaces vacated when autotransplanted teeth were lost. Participating dentists were requested to provide information on transplantations they had undertaken. A total of 614 teeth in 552 patients (37 dentists) ranging in age from 17 to 79 years (mean age: 44.1 years) were examined. A total of 102 transplanted teeth were lost during the observation period...

Finite element stress analysis has been widely used in stomatology. In this article, we summarized the stress distributions of all-ceramic crowns, post crowns, fixed partial dentures and implant support fixed dentures; and with the use of finite element method, we investigated the stress levels of the periodontal ligament of abutment. The results showed: the tensile stress and compressive stress concentrated at the cervical margin of all-ceramic crown and post crown; the stress at the surface of the crown was the highest; the stress concentration exhibited at the connector of fixed parital denture, the molar was an ideal abutment tooth for the fixed bridge; the largest stress appeared around the neck of the implant abutment...

INTRODUCTION: Biocompatibility of a crown-bridge material is as important as its physical and mechanical properties. It is also one of the most important factors for the long-lasting clinical success of that restoration. It directly contacts the vital prepared tooth and that is the reason it has to be nontoxic to the local tissues, such as the pulp, gingiva, or the rest of the body. Materials with different physical properties are used in the conventional fixed prosthodontic restorations...

Computer assisted design/computer assisted machining (CAD/CAM) technology has received considerable clinical and research interest from modern dental practices as a means of delivering all-ceramic restorations. Up to now the CAD/CAM system with zirconia has the highest fracture strength in all all-ceramic materials, and consistently enabled the most esthetic, lifelike reproduction of natural dentition. They have been widely received by both dentists and patients. The CAD/CAM system with zirconia is indicated for crowns and bridges in natural teeth or implants and telescope dentures, the CAD/CAM with zirconia can be placed anywhere in the mouth, and can replace the porcelain crowns and bridges for single crown and bridges less than 6 units...

There are two causes of common failures in posts and implants: retention and stress distribution. Implants that were smooth metal cylinders have today become threaded metal cylinders. By using one additional hand-operated instrument, the thread cutter and an additional five minutes of time, a rigid, threaded, metal post can be placed in the root canal to support the remaining coronal dentine. The tooth can frequently be rebuilt as a single unit or a bridge abutment to last for as long as the bone supports the root...

PURPOSE: In order to reveal the relationship between 8020 movement and prosthodontic treatments, a systematic review was conducted concerning the clinical questions of 1) whether the longevity of abutment teeth is extended by prosthodontic treatment, 2) whether prosthodontic treatment can help extend the longevity of remaining teeth. METHODS: In order to determine the survival rate of the crown and bridge, the prognosis of the abutment of crowns and bridges, the influence of removable partial denture and dental implant therapies on the survival of remaining teeth, and the survival rates of remaining teeth between when the teeth adjacent to missing teeth are treated prosthodontically and when not treated, a systematic review using computer online searches was conducted...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term prognosis after insertion of 510 IMZ-implants in case of free-end situations of the upper and lower jaw and prosthodontic restoration. We examined 222 patients prospectively who were treated in a dental practice because of uni- or bilateral free-end situation between 1984 and 1996. Affected and crowned teeth which were neighbouring the implant-based suprastructure, were blocked with these by use of bridge-restorations or attachments. In all the other cases purely implant-based bridge or single-tooth restorations were inserted...
