All-ceramic inlay-retained fixed dental prostheses: An update.


Inlay-retained fixed dental prostheses (IRFDPs) represent a minimally invasive alternative to conventional fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) to replace single posterior missing teeth. The aim of the present review article is to assess the clinical outcome of different IRFDPs in order to derive recommendations regarding their clinical application. Hence, it is essential to highlight important factors that influence the longevity and success of IRFDPs, such as treatment plan, appropriate case selection with proper indications, as well as tooth preparation. Furthermore, a good understanding of bonding technologies and awareness of pretreatment procedures for different materials are indispensable for the long-term success of IRFDPs.
