Sammanfattning (abstract):
Background: Long-term follow-up studies (i.e., over 5 years), focusing on prosthetic outcomes and maintenance of implant-supported reconstructions in the edentulous maxilla, are scarce in the literature. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate and report 10-year data on outcomes and maintenance of screw-retained implant-supported full-arch casted titanium-resin prostheses in the edentulous maxilla. Materials and Methods: In the randomized control trial cohort of 24 patients, the outcome and maintenance of 23 bridges were registered. Results: One patient dropped out of the study prior to the 10-year control. Of the 23 remaining patients, 21 still had their original frameworks; one framework fractured after 8 years and one was remade after 7 years to create better support for the acrylic. The remaining 23 prostheses showed criteria of success, survival, and failure in 9, 82, and 9%, respectively. Tightening of two assembly screws was necessary in one patient. No detrimental effects were seen because of long cantilever extensions or opposing dentition. A total of 4.7 resin-related complications per prosthesis were observed; tooth fracture was the most common prosthetic complication. There was an indication of greater prevention in the number of resin-related complications with the use of lingual gold onlay compared with a resilient mouth guard, 0.71 and 1.67, respectively per bridge. The bridges were removed and reinserted 0.83 times per patient. No abutment or abutment screw fractures were registered. Conclusion: Fracture or wear of the reconstruction materials were considered predictable risks when using resin-based suprastructure materials. Status of opposing dentition and length of cantilevers did not confer additional risk. The use of a lingual gold onlay indicated prevention of resin-related complications. Future research should focus on the suprastructure materials to predict better overall treatment results of implant-supported full-arch bridges in the edentulous maxilla.
