Fracture Strength of Implant Screw-Retained All-Ceramic Crowns with the Use of the Angulated Screw Channel: A Pilot Study.
This study evaluated the fracture strength of a newly designed zirconia crown with a 25-degree angulated screw channel (n = 5) vs a straight channel (n = 5). Each specimen was subjected to an off-axis compression load from an MTS cyclic loading machine with a custom-designed indenter simulating a natural dentition. All the 25-degree angulated screw channel specimens failed, with four of the five (80%) catastrophically failing. Four of the five straight-channel specimens failed, with two of the five (40%) catastrophically failing. Results revealed the potential abutment fracture from internal stresses at the screw-zirconia ...
