Abstract

Endosseous dental implants are routinely used for the replacement of missing teeth. The CeraOne system uses a gold cylinder that is luted to a metal abutment. This study evaluated two luting agents and two luting techniques on the retention of a CeraOne gold cylinder to a CeraOne titanium abutment. A mechanical testing instrument was used to provide an uniaxial tensile force on the gold cylinder, which was cemented with zinc phosphate or Tempbond NE. The access opening to the gold abutment screw was filled or unfilled. Filling the access opening resulted in significantly higher retentive values (P < 0.01) compared to leaving the access opening unfilled. The gold cylinder was significantly more retentive when cemented with zinc phosphate as compared with Tempbond NE (P < 0.01). A Tukey post hoc test demonstrated that all means were significantly different at the P=0.01 level. The results suggest that the choice of luting agent and luting technique may affect retention of a CeraOne gold cylinder. (Implant Dent 1995;4:32-35).
