Description

Fixed implant-supported prostheses offer stable restorations for fully edentulous patients while minimizing the bone resorption and soft tissue recession associated with edentulism. Monolithic zirconia full-arch prostheses provide all the benefits of a screw-retained hybrid denture, while greatly improving upon the durability of an acrylic appliance. The clinical protocol for delivering these fixed full-arch restorations is relatively simple, with several steps in place to ensure a precise fit and natural-looking esthetics for the final prosthesis. With the solid zirconia full-arch implant prosthesis, clinicians can dramatically improve the quality of life for their edentulous patients by providing a stable, functional and long-lasting restoration.

Objectives

Objectives
By maximizing prosthetic stability and function, fixed implant-supported dentures offer significant advantages over traditional removable appliances. Fixed acrylic hybrid dentures have been used to successfully provide edentulous patients with a stable prosthesis for many years now. However, over the long term, acrylic appliances are susceptible to wear, fracture and dislodging of the prosthetic teeth. All-zirconia full-arch implant prostheses improve upon acrylic dentures by offering lifelike esthetics along with superior durability. Constructed from solid zirconia, these full-arch restorations attach to implants through titanium inserts and provide exceptional resistance to wear, chips and cracks. By following a straightforward restorative protocol, clinicians can provide their patients with an edentulous solution that offers maximum stability, durability and esthetics. Topics include:
