Impact of Bruxism on Ceramic Defects in Implant-Borne Fixed Dental Prostheses: A Retrospective Study

Ceramic veneer fracture is a frequent complication in implant-borne fixed restorations.1 Osseointegrated implants are ankylosed directly to the bone. The lack of mechanoreceptors around implants and the missing pulp receptors decrease tactile sensitivity, leaving the implant-borne restoration exposed to uncontrolled mastication forces and stress during mastication.1 These mastication forces increase considerably in bruxers.2
