Implant restorations are rapidly being accepted as the standard of care when treating edentulous or partially edentulous patients. Implant-based restorations offer excellent stability, function, and esthetic results. Commonly used abutment materials: Titanium, Zirconia, and gold hue Titanium.
Hybrid dentures are proven replacements for removable prostheses worn by edentulous patients. A custom titanium implant bar is milled using precise CAD/CAM technology. Acrylic teeth are processed to the bar, and fixed in the mouth via abutment screws.
IMPLANT-SUPPORTED REMOVABLE DENTURE
These types of dentures are referred to as overdentures and can be removed by the patient. Once the bar is milled with precise CAD/CAM technology and implanted, the denture is constructed with internal attachments and engaged to the bar for esthetic and functional results.
This FDA cleared implant abutment system uses the shape memory material, Nitinol, to create an entirely new attachment between a restoration and a dental implant. Now the need for cement or screws when attaching the restoration to the dental implant has been eliminated.
