Abstract:

Implant-supported, implant-retained hybrid prostheses is an increasingly common restoration for edentulous patients. Reviews of the literature have shown that mechanical failure mode between the denture tooth and the denture base is a common problem. To decrease the possibility of failure, lithium disilicate has been suggested as a restorative material for the hybrid prosthetic tooth. This new design has created an untested interface between lithium disilicate and polymethylmethacrylate PMMA.
