BECOME A MASTER OF ZIRCONIA PROSTHODONTICS ON SDS CERAMIC IMPLANTS IN THIS HALF DAY COURSE
All’s well that ends well? The same goes for the final prosthetic you place on an implant. We would wager, however, that you have been learning the hard way and have messed up one or two cases along the way!
Ceramic crowns and bridges follow their own laws. While they provide us with fantastic aesthetics and superior soft tissue compatibility, they can be exasperating. This especially holds true for ceramic implants, where the old prosthodontist’s saying “color and shape are defined by the bite!” certainly no longer applies. Rather, it is “all or nothing” — the prosthetic restoration must be reproducible and perfect the first time around. In order to ensure stability and soft tissue compatibility, we prefer a monolithic solution.
Gone are the days when it was possible to grind in or fire implants onto the abutment. We demand nothing less than flawless marginal adaptation, no friction, perfect and balanced occlusion and outstanding aesthetics!
You will only achieve this if you pre-plan the prosthetic in cooperation with your dental technician, ensure the closest possible approximation to the ideal position using an LTT-1 (and sometimes even an LTT-2) and by using a system that ensures that the monolithic prosthetic fits perfectly at the final appointment.
No one can teach you this better than Joachim Maier, the oral designer and master dental technician who, together with Dr. Ulrich Volz, designed and fitted the world’s first zirconium oxide crowns and bridges more than twenty years ago. Ever since, the two have been working together and Joachim Maier has developed the field of zirconium oxide prosthetics to perfection and generated simple methods that are capable of meeting the high demands of SWISS BIOHEALTH patients in just a few sessions.
