Clinical Evaluation of Injectable Dental Ceramic Restorations
The purpose of this study was a clinical evaluation of injectable dental ceramic restorations. In this study, Ceraeste system based on Diopside was used for injectable dental ceramics. Ninty two injectable ceramic restorations were investigated in 36 patients by a questionnaire survey performed from December 7th, 2001 to July 7th, 2004. The mean service time of the restorations was 18 months. One crown on a mandibular first molar was fractured. It was concluded that new injectable glass-ceramic restorations are suitable for clinical use, although not totally without problem, especially with survival rate of the injectable glass-ceramics, which might be shorter than the other restorations. These findings should be investigated sequentially.
