Computer-aided Fabrication of a Zirconia 14-unit Removable Dental Prosthesis: A Technical Report
Größer, Julian / Sachs, Caroline / Stadelmann, Markus / Schweiger, Josef / Güth, Jan-Frederik / Beuer, Florian
Double crown systems with primary crowns made from zirconia are used to support removable dental prostheses (RDPs). However, the fabrication of RDPs is labor-intensive and costly. Manufacturing primary and secondary crowns from zirconia with a CAD/CAM system might simplify the fabrication protocol and reduce costs. Furthermore, only ceramic materials are used in this method, providing an RDP with the highest possible biocompatibility and greatest possible esthetics. This article describes the fabrication protocol step by step.
