Clinical Success Rates of Ceramic vs PFM Restorations

Description:
Dr. Rella Christensen, a researcher at Clinical Research Associates (CRA) which publish Clinician’s Report, discusses recent findings of in depth studies comparing Zirconia to PFM to Alumina frameworks in restorative dentistry. Both CAD/CAM and Pressed ceramics are studied relative to their long-term clinical durability when compared to PFM restorations.

What is the current status of these bridges? Do you have a new update on all zirconia bridges that would help us in our decision making?

keeping the anatomy simple for zirconia veneered ceramic is a very clever and gud tip.i appreciate

Good work. Please keep us up to date so that we can see if press ceramics give good reults after 5 and 10 years incorporated.

I would like to hear more from CRA, Rella on all of their research.

Nallesh,
you are correct in that removing Zirconia crowns cemented to etched dentin substrate is extremely difficult and time consuming - - and they seldom if ever don't break during removal as you have to use a high speed and effectively have to grind them off in small pieces
- - - you do have a much better chance with pfm's but again it depends on the cementation

The importance of supporting porcelain on zirconia frameworks cannot be overstated. I'm glad she brought this point to attention as many technicians are starting to hear about his more and more.

Good information... I would love to hear some studies comparing single unit performances of the various ceramic options

[quote=Nailesh Gandhi]I have listened to presentation by Dr. Rella Christensen, a researcher at Clinical Research Associates on topic on which is better - PFM ,Zirconia and Alumina.Lots of doubts have been cleared by her superb clear report.Such reports when presented is similar style gives instant benefits for clinicians.Please do continues with similar clinical presentations.I have to make one observation as regards to PFM and Zirconia.It is easier to remove PFM than Zirconia crowns as they may break during removal.I have not experienced such incidence so far but just an apprehension.If some one with more experience can enlighten us it will be great![/quote]

Somehow I missed your question, Nailesh, and want to give you an accurate answer so please let me have a bit more information: First, do you mean at try-in or after final cementation? and second, if final cementation, what are you cementing your crowns with (both PFM and Zirconia)? And third, how are you trying to remove your crowns?

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Effect of Different Cementation Techniques on Retained Excess Cement and Uniaxial Retention of the Implant-Supported Prosthesis
The aim of the study was to identify the different techniques of cementation (half filling, practice abutment, and venting) that will reduce the amount of retained cement and the effect of these techniques on retention of implant supported prostheses. The venting and practice abutment techniques are suitable methods of reducing retained excess cement with optimal retention values.

A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies
Dental professionals have long been guided by mathematical principles when interpreting aesthetic and tooth proportions for their patients. While many acknowledge that such principles are merely launch points for a smile design or reconstructive procedure, their existence appears to indicate practitioners’ desire for predictable, objective, and reproducible means of achieving success in aesthetic dentistry. This article introduces innovative aesthetic measurement gauges as a means of objectively quantifying tooth size discrepancies and enabling the clinician to perform aesthetic restorative dentistry with success and predictability.
