Long Term Success Criteria in Prosthetic Restorations

Prosthetic restorations have an important role in the practice of dentistry. High-quality prosthetic treatment can only be accomplished, if it is based on several key principles and specific criteria. These principles and criteria influence success and allow patients to use restorations for long periods of time. Considering that prosthetic restorations are performed with a high budget in all dentistry treatments, long term success is the first goal of the physicians in the name of the patients. Success can be achieved in many cases, depending on extensive clinical evaluations and strategies that used to pass them on. Failure, sometimes is a result of overlooking standard applications and sometimes is a result of confronting unnecessary risks. It is also important to note that the long-term success is depend on establishing a correct treatment plan. Although the criteria adopted and the methods used for restoration of natural tooth loss, which usually occur due to tooth decay, trauma, abrasion, etc., are similar in the past, the treatments for tooth loss have almost completely differentiated today. In particular, dental implant applications and implant prosthetic applications should now be viewed with a completely different perspective.
