The article discusses the survival and complication rates of resin-bonded bridges (RBBs) after five years. Researchers conducted a clinical examination which required to have a mean follow-up period of five year or more. They viewed RBB's survival as remaining in place at the final stage of the examination without multiple debondings. The researchers' estimated survival rate of RBBs is 87.7 percent and is complicated by a 19.2 percent debonding rate of the veneers.

    Background and Objective: Dentists often question the use of resin-bonded fixed partial dentures (RBFPDs) for reliable restoration of tooth-bound edentulous spaces. Initial attempts at bonding fixed partial dentures on teeth resulted in early failure due to debonding. In the 1980s and 1990s,...

    Many clinical data on resin-bonded bridges (RBBs) have been published in the last ten years. The survival rates vary widely, and the conclusions are sometimes conflicting. A method of combining the results of different studies in order to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of therapeutic...

    After 7 years of clinical experience, the alumina ceramic, In-Ceram, can be regarded as a well-proven material for all-ceramic crowns. Because of its high strength, this material can also be used for small all-ceramic fixed partial dentures. First attempts at using this material for resin-bonded...

    Clinical studies measuring the lifetime of dental prostheses produce censored data when not all specimens have failed during the course of the study. Such clinical data can be analyzed by the Weibull probability distribution function. Algorithms are presented that provide the maximum likelihood...
