Preliminary Laboratory Evaluation of Bicomponent Customized Zirconia Abutments

Luigi Canullo, DDS / Patrizio Morgia, DDS / Fabio Marinotti, LT

PMID: 17944336

The purpose of this descriptive study was to analyze the behavior of a bicomponent custom-made zirconia abutment used with an internal connection implant system. The microscopic marginal fit and specific mechanical characteristics of 20 titanium platform and zirconia abutment complexes were evaluated. Scanning electron microscope analysis showed mean values of 10.03 m for the horizontal gap and 4.419 m for the vertical gap for the components. The traction test revealed a mean maximum load value of 190 N, whereas the bending test showed a mean maximum load value of 436 N. Int J Prosthodont 2007; 20:486488.
