ZIRCONA ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS
Jan 04, 2017
Zircona All-on-4 implants are the ultimate option where there is a combination of strength and cosmetics. Most patients feel that this is the option that is the closest to the feel of their natural teeth. The material is very rigid for use on both upper and lower jaw. It has been around for approximately 10 years with great success!
Zirconia is a material with physical properties like steel, but a color that makes it conducive to creating highly aesthetic restorations. It is also a highly biocompatible material and helps facilitate better hygiene because plaque does not adhere to zirconia to the same degree as older dental implant bridge materials. Acrylic is a more porous material, whereas zirconia is very dense. This means that the zirconia will not absorb, resulting in a more hygienic, better restoration.
By far the biggest advantage of zirconia is its likely performance over time, as well as the weight and texture feeling more like natural teeth. Zirconia is CAD-milled to fine-tune the aesthetics and arrangement of the teeth. Using new techniques where we can color the zirconia after its milled, we can achieve high aesthetics and optimal durability.
