Abstract

Purpose: We analyzed complications and failures of final full-arch implant-supported rehabilitations, comparing resin and zirconia prosthesis materials. Prostheses were retrospectively followed up for 5 years. Materials and Methods: One hundred twenty-five patients who received one or two four to six implant-supported immediately loaded full-arch rehabilitations in resin (166 prostheses) or zirconia (48 prostheses) were analyzed. Results: One hundred thirteen patients (53 men, 60 women), with 214 full-arch prostheses (105 maxillary, 109 mandibular), were analyzed. During the follow-up interval, the prosthesis annual complication rate was 6.6%, free complications survival was 75.5% (60 months). Age, number of implants, and prosthesis material did not influence complication risk. Men had a higher risk of complications than women. Prosthesis annual failure rate was 4.6%, free survival was 85.5% (60 months). Age, number of implants, and prosthesis material did not influence failure risk. Men and maxillary arch prostheses had a higher risk of failures than women and mandibular arch prostheses. Conclusion: Implant-supported, immediately loaded full-arch rehabilitations supporting resin or zirconia based prostheses were clinically successful in a 5-year follow-up. Prosthesis material did not influence complication risk.
