Description

Full-arch implant restorations fabricated from monolithic zirconia offer a new standard in prosthetic durability and all the benefits of a fixed hybrid denture. Their singular construction from solid zirconia minimizes the odds that patients will ever have to go without their prosthesis. The workflow for restoring an edentulous arch with a monolithic zirconia implant prosthesis is straightforward and nearly identical to the clinical steps involved in producing a traditional hybrid denture. Although the traditional hybrid denture has been the optimal solution for edentulism for many years, clinicians now have the option of providing their patients with a fixed restoration that offers excellent esthetics and maximum resistance to the occlusal forces full-arch restorations are subject to over time.

Objectives

Objectives
By substantially improving prosthetic stability and function, implant-supported dentures enhance the quality of life for edentulous patients. While both fixed and removable full-arch implant prostheses offer improved comfort, oral health, esthetics, and speech and chewing capabilities, the acrylic hybrid denture offers maximum stability by attaching to implants through a titanium substructure. The only drawback to fixed hybrid dentures is their susceptibility to wear and fracture over the long term, which can require ongoing maintenance, repairs or outright replacement. Advancements in CAD/CAM technology and material science allow for the fabrication of full-arch implant restorations from monolithic zirconia, providing clinicians with a more durable alternative. Drs. Jack Hahn, B. Patrick Schaefer and Timothy Kosinski outline the advantages of this new restorative option for edentulous patients. Topics include:
