Restoration of the Upper and Lower Dental Arches with Monolithic Zirconia- Fixed Detachable Prostheses
Clinical Report after Four Years of Use
In the case of fixed detachable dental prostheses some problems arose for patients, dental technicians and dentists. The most frequently emerging general problem is loosening or breakage of the occlusal screws. Further problems turned out to be wear and detachment or breakage of the resin teeth from metal acrylic blends, the breakage of porcelain from metal and ceramic or zirconia and ceramic blends as well as breakage of the framework in some free-end prostheses. For this type of prosthesis it is necessary to leave the implants in a position that enables occlusal or lingual access to not impair the aesthetics.
This clinical report describes the case of a patient with a complete restoration of fixed detachable, maxillary and mandibular prostheses out of 100% zirconia (monolithic zirconia). It includes the incisal and occlusal areas on angled dental implants with buccal access and an aesthetic prosthesis solution, for which no clinical complications in the patient's mouth have been reported after 4 years.
