Survival Rates and Complications for Zirconia-Based Fixed Dental Prostheses in a Period Up to 10 Years: A Systematic Review

C Stefanescu et al. Eur J Prosthodont Restor Dent. .

Abstract

Aims: The purpose of this study was to methodically review the literature concerning the success and survival rates of zirconia fixed dental prostheses (FDPs).

Methods: A systematic search was conducted of MEDLINE, Elsevier and the Cochrane Library to identify relevant articles about zirconia FDPs. In order to obtain suitable articles, rigorous criteria were applied. The minimum follow-up period was five years.

Results: From a total of 986 articles identified in the first electronic search, only 10 matched the inclusion criteria. A total of 368 patients with 430 zirconia FDPs were included in this systematic review. The survival rate was 89.43% ± 10.01% and chipping of the veneering ceramic occurred in 16.97% of the cases.

Conclusion: Zirconia-based fixed dental prostheses perform reasonably well and can serve as an alternative to metal-ceramic fixed dental prostheses.
