Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate in vivo performance of cobalt-chromium/ceramic fixed partial dentures (FPDs) fabricated using CAD/CAM laser-sintering technology. The purpose is to assess technical and biological outcome compared to traditional cast metal-ceramic FPDs.Method: This retrospective study is conducted in a dental clinic that utilizes the Direct Metal Laser-Sintering (DMLS) CAD/CAM technique to fabricate metal-ceramic FPD since 4 years. The evaluation was taken during the periodical hygiene recall and follow-up.The FPDs were categorized in: 1) Single Dental Crown (1 dental unit) 2)Small Bridges (1-3 units) 3)Wide Bridges ( >3 units). An Evaluation Form was completed, using USPHS criteria to estimate quality and conditions of FPDs: Framework fracture, Veneering Fracture, Occlusal Wear, Marginal Adaptation, Anatomical Form (Alfa (A) to Delta (D) scale).A soft tissue and abutment analysis were also conducted to assess: Plaque Index (PLI), Bleeding on Probing (BoP), Gingival Recession (REC). Moreover the satisfaction of every patient was measured with a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) with 10 levels.Result: This study is actually in progress. 35 patients with a total of 145 fixed dental prosthetic units were examined until now. The mean observation period is 14,7 ± 10,6 months (maximum: 44 months; minimum: 1 month). There were no framework fracture. 4 patients present 'veneering failures''. Three of these patients are affected by bruxism and parafunctional habits. 1 'wide bridge' (4 dental units) failed as a result of extraction after endodontic disease. The success rate is now 97,14%.

Abstract

The purpose is to assess technical and biological outcome compared to traditional cast metal-ceramic FPDs.Method: This retrospective study is conducted in a dental clinic that utilizes the Direct Metal Laser-Sintering (DMLS) CAD/CAM technique to fabricate metal-ceramic FPD since 4 years. The evaluation was taken during the periodical hygiene recall and follow-up.The FPDs were categorized in: 1) Single Dental Crown (1 dental unit) 2)Small Bridges (1-3 units) 3)Wide Bridges ( >3 units).
