Restoration of the Upper and Lower Dental Arches with Monolithic Zirconia-Fixed Detachable Prostheses
Rojas-Vizcaya, Fernando
Restoring the entire mouth of a patient with dental implants and residual dentition is a challenge if there is a strong vertical and horizontal bone resorption, since this includes the 'pink aesthetics' and restricts the position of the implants. This report describes the case for a complete restoration using a fixed detachable upper and lower prosthesis. Both upper and lower fixed detachable restorations include the entire occlusal surface, and the incisal edges are made of 100% zirconia (Prettau zirconia, Zirkonzahn) to prevent breakage, as with conventional ceramic, which is then coloured with Colour Liquid (Zirkonzahn) to achieve the desired "pink and white aesthetics".
