Use of monolithic lithium disilicate for implant abutment and crown: a clinical report

Abstract

Background Lithium disilicate is usually used for producing prosthetic crowns to be cemented on teeth or implant abutments. On the contrary, its use for producing implant abutment is not reported. This report describes the use of monolithic lithium disilicate to realize implant abutment and crown.

Case report A 60-year-old male patient required dental implant restoration for replacing the upper right central incisor. A lithium disilicate abutment and crown were realized by pressing.

Conlusion Lithium disilicate may be a valid alternative to zirconia for producing implant abutments in the esthetic area.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
