PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of definitive, implant-supported, lithium disilicate fixed dental prostheses (LS2 FDPs) manufactured with a computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system. All patients received two-unit restorations placed in posterior regions, supported by osseointegrated implants with cone-in-cone connection abutments. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two implants (Ankylos) were placed into healed sites or fresh extraction sockets in the maxillary/mandibular posterior regions of partially edentulous patients. Definitive digital impressions were made 3 months after surgery. Twenty-four patients received fixed monolithic LS2 restorations manufactured with the CEREC system. All restorations were connected to the implants using cone-in-cone connection abutments. Peri-implant pocket depths were recorded for 2 years at each follow-up visit. Esthetic, functional, and biologic United States Public Health Services (USPHS) parameters modified by the FDI World Dental Federation study design were assessed yearly until the last follow-up appointment. The opposing dentitions were identified by type of restoration and supporting structures at the time of placement of the definitive restorations and at the 2-year follow-up visits. RESULTS: One patient (4.16%) moved to an unknown location during the study. A total of 23 FDPs (95.8%) supported by 46 implants reached the 2-year follow-up. None of the prostheses failed, or became loose or detached. No significant difference involving probing levels between the experimental times were found.

Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of definitive, implant-supported, lithium disilicate fixed dental prostheses (LS2 FDPs) manufactured with a computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system. All patients received two-unit restorations placed in posterior regions, supported by osseointegrated implants with cone-in-cone connection abutments. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two implants (Ankylos) were placed into healed sites or fresh extraction sockets in the maxillary/mandibular posterior regions of partially edentulous patients. Definitive digital impressions were made 3 months after surgery. Twenty-four patients received fixed monolithic LS2 restorations manufactured with the CEREC system. All restorations were connected to the implants using cone-in-cone connection abutments. Peri-implant pocket depths were recorded for 2 years at each follow-up visit. Esthetic, functional, and biologic United States Public Health Services (USPHS) parameters modified by the FDI World Dental Federation study design were assessed yearly until the last follow-up appointment. The opposing dentitions were identified by type of restoration and supporting structures at the time of placement of the definitive restorations and at the 2-year follow-up visits. RESULTS: One patient (4.16%) moved to an unknown location during the study. A total of 23 FDPs (95.8%) supported by 46 implants reached the 2-year follow-up. None of the prostheses failed, or became loose or detached. No significant difference involving probing levels between the experimental times were found.
