Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the results of combined porcelain fused to Co-Cr metal crowns splint treatment for chronic periodontal disease.

METHODS:

A total of 14 patients were restored with 17 combined porcelain fused to Co-Cr metal crowns fixed splintings. Immediately, and 3, 6, 12 months after the restoration, the periodontal conditions were evaluated by plaque control record, bleeding on probing, periodontal probing depth, clinical attachment loss, mobility of fixed partial denture and bone support. The performance of the patients was evaluated according to California Dental Association criteria, USA.

RESULTS:

There were no significant differences in the clinical indexes (P > 0.05). The satisfactory rate of the fixed splinting was 92.9% (13/14).

CONCLUSION:

The short-term clinical behavior of combined porcelain fused to Co-Cr metal crowns fixed splintings is encouraging.
