What is the Optimal Material for Implant Prosthesis?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Implant dentistry has shifted to prosthetically guided implant planning and placement. This shift has influenced the range of available dental materials to restore single crowns and partially and fully edentulous jaws with dental implants. This article presents an overview of the available options to restore dental implants. The qualities that define an ideal restoring material are discussed along with the most commonly used materials with their advantages and limitations. Because clinicians face different clinical scenarios in their practice, the discussion sums up the best techniques and materials that are useful in addressing these nonideal situations.
