Zirconia Abutments: Long term success based on connection type and region?

Last Updated January 10, 2017

A recent study aimed to evaluate the clinical performance of zirconia abutments in anterior and posterior regions, focusing on implant-abutment connections and restoration vertical height (RVH).
The conclusion:

The external connection showed the longest survival while the internal zirconia connection showed the highest fracture incidence over the observation period. The clinical risk limit of RVH was identified as 14 mm. Zirconia abutments showed satisfactory clinical performance in anterior and posterior regions after 4 to 10 years. RVH and connection type influenced the clinical longevity of restorations; in particular, internal connections with secondary metallic components reduced the incidence of complications.

What has been your success rate with Zirconia abutments in your practice? Which connection are using?
