Fractographic Analysis of a Clinically Failed FPD After 10 Years in Service

To date, no studies have reported failure analysis of metal-ceramic fixed partial dentures (FPDs), and most available ones focus instead on all-ceramic FPDs.1 Metal-ceramic FPDs have long been considered the replacement of choice for missing teeth, and the longevity of FPDs fabricated from high-noble alloys was found to be 83% after 14 years.2 Studies related to intraorally failed FPDs provide valuable information that may help optimize clinical performance and minimize manufacturing and handling errors.
