Resumen (otros idiomas)

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the fit of ceramic crowns fabricated from intraoral digital impressions. Methods: Twenty-five participants with 30 posterior teeth with a prosthetic demand were selected for the study. Two crowns were made for each preparation. One crown was fabricated from an intraoral digital impression system (IDI group) and the other crown was fabricated from a conventional two-step silicone impressiom (CI group). To replicate the interface between the crown and the preparation, each crown was cemented on its corresponding clinical preparation with ultra-flow silicone. Each crown was embedded in acrylic resin to stabilise the registered interfase and then cut in 2 mm thick slices in a buco-lingual orientation. The internal gap was determined as the vertical distance from the internal surface of the crown to the prepared tooth surface at four points (marginal gap, axial gap, crest gap, and occlusal fossa gap) using stereomicroscopy with a magnifications of 40x. data was analyzed by using Wilcoxon signed rank test (a=0.05) Results: Internal adaptation values were significantly affected by the impression technique (p=0.001). mean marginal gap was 76.33+-65.32µmfor the crowns of the IDI group and 91.46+-71.17µmfor the CI group. Conclusion: All-ceramic crowns fabricated from intraoral digital impressions with wavefront sampling technology demonstrated better internal fit than crowns manufactured from silicone impressions. Clinical significance:Impressions obtained from an intraoral digital scanner based on wavefront sampling technology can be used for manufacturing ceramic crowns in the normal clinical practice with better results than conventional impressions with elastomers.
