Invitro Fracture Resistance and Marginal Accuracy of Zirconia Inlay-retained Fixed Partial Denture: A Systematic Review


Objectives: To determine the fracture resistance and marginal accuracy of Inlay-Retained Fixed Partial Denture (IRFPD) fabricated from monolithic zirconia to determine whether it can replace full coverage zirconia restoration. Methods: Search was made in three databases including Pubmed, ScienceDirect and Cochrane databases, the terms yttria stabilized ­tetragonal zirconia, inlay, full coverage and fixed partial denture were used, title and abstract were screened; ­according to the exclusion and inclusion criteria articles which did not follow the inclusion criteria were excluded. Included papers are then read carefully for a second stage filter, this was followed by manual searching. Results: The search resulted in 5 included papers, four papers concerning the fracture resistance of Inlay-Retained Fixed Partial Denture and one ­determining the fracture resistance of full coverage three unit fixed partial denture. No papers were found studying the marginal accuracy of monolithic zirconia Inlay-Retained Or Full Coverage Fixed Partial Denture. From the included studies zirconia Inlay-Retained Fixed Partial Denture can successfully replace zirconia full coverage fixed partial denture in terms of fracture resistance.
