Description

Both removable and fixed implant restorations can dramatically improve oral function, esthetics and quality of life for fully edentulous patients. Their acrylic construction, however, can lead to ongoing maintenance, repairs or replacements. For patients that desire a more durable fixed implant restoration, the monolithic zirconia full-arch implant prosthesis can be delivered following a streamlined, predictable restorative process that includes several layers of verification to ensure an esthetic, well-fitting restoration. The clinical step-by-step protocol employs standard denture techniques, an implant verification jig and provisionalization to ensure an optimal outcome.

Although these benefits are nothing short of life-changing, the acrylic body and prosthetic teeth of implant-supported dentures are vulnerable to wear and breakage. Amid technological advancements, clinicians can now provide their edentulous patients with prostheses fabricated from monolithic zirconia.
