Summary of "All-ceramic resin bonded fixed partial denture made of IPS hot-pressed casting porcelain restore anterior missing teeth: a three years clinical observation."

To clinic observation of IPS Empress2 and IPS e.max all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures used in one anterior teeth lost in upper jaw or less than two anterior tooth lost in lower jaw.
22 patients, 26 restorations had been made, which included 16 single-retainer all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures and 10 two-retainers all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures. Secondary caries of the abutments, shade in the margin of the retainers and the integrity of the restorations had been observed at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years after all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures having been bonded.
In the 3 years of clinic observation of the anterior all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures, 1 two-retainers restoration lost bond after it had been made for 3 months, a retainer of one two-retainers restoration was broken after 6 months, but they are still used after modified as one-retainer all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures, 1 two-retainers restoration lost bond two year later, It was integrity and re-bonded again that was still stable. No secondary carries and no shade in margin of the retainers had been found. Their color matches with the nature teeth excellently. The success rate was 88.5%.
IPS Empress 2 and IPS e.max all ceramic resin bonded fixed partial dentures should be a good selection in one or two teeth lose in anterior jaws.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A commonly used prosthesis that results in a strong, permanent restoration. It consists of an electrolytically etched cast-metal retainer that is cemented (bonded), using resins, to adjacent teeth whose enamel was previously acid-treated (acid-etched). This type of bridgework is sometimes referred to as a Maryland bridge.

A partial denture attached to prepared natural teeth, roots, or implants by cementation.

A partial denture constructed before the teeth it replaces are removed. It is then inserted immediately after the removal of the natural teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons during the healing process. It is to be replaced later by the fitted partial denture.

A partial denture designed and constructed to be removed readily from the mouth.

A precision device used for attaching a fixed or removable partial denture to the crown of an abutment tooth or a restoration. One type is the intracoronal attachment and the other type is the extracoronal attachment. It consists of a female portion within the coronal portion of the crown of an abutment and a fitted male portion attached to the denture proper.
