- Maximum resistance to chips, stains and fractures
- Includes provisional try-in implant prosthesis
- Hypoallergenic, wear compatible with enamel
A Durable, Lifelike Alternative to the Acrylic Hybrid Denture
Constructed from 100% solid zirconia, the BruxZir Implant Prosthesis provides the same superior stability and function as the screw-retained hybrid denture, but with a monolithic construction that avoids the chips, stains and fractures that can compromise acrylic appliances. With superior fracture toughness and an average flexural strength of 1,150 MPa, BruxZir Zirconia is the ideal material for withstanding the functional stresses that full-arch restorations must endure. And yet, the material is gentle to opposing dentition and hypoallergenic.
The BruxZir Implant Prosthesis includes a new and improved step-by-step protocol that streamlines the restorative process. Our five-appointment protocol, supported by instructional guides, videos and technical support staff, minimizes the likelihood of wax reset appointments and ensures a predictable outcome. A provisional try-in implant prosthesis is included to ensure that the patient and doctor are satisfied with the prosthetic design before the final restoration is milled from monolithic zirconia. The result is a highly accurate, exceptionally strong, lifelike restoration.
Note: The maximum strength BruxZir Implant Prosthesis is ideal for patients who have a strong bite, grind, or have damaged previous restorations. For maximum esthetics, we recommend the BruxZir Esthetic Implant Prosthesis.
Also available for partial-arch indications: The BruxZir Partial-Arch Implant Prosthesis is a more durable replacement for removable partial dentures.
Monthly Prescriptions: BruxZir Implant Prosthesis vs. Screw-Retained Hybrid Denture
Since the product’s release in 2013, monthly prescriptions for the BruxZir Implant Prosthesis have steadily outpaced screw-retained hybrid dentures as clinicians have sought out a more durable implant solution for fully edentulous patients.
BEFORE: The patient, who sought treatment for untreatable maxillary dentition and a poorly functioning lower denture, requested a fixed implant solution.
AFTER: Because the final BruxZir restorations were exact replicas of the approved provisional try-in implant prostheses, the fit, esthetics and function met the precise expectations of the patient.
- Clinical dentistry by Paresh B. Patel, DDS
BEFORE: This patient had limited interocclusal space, recurrent decay, malocclusion, and missing mandibular and maxillary dentition.
AFTER: After a period with an interim prosthesis to increase vertical dimension, a BruxZir Implant Prosthesis was delivered on the mandibular ridge, providing exceptional resistance to the forces of bruxism.
BEFORE: Preoperative condition of a patient who had a high lip line, severe cervical decay on the remaining teeth, and lack of gingival support.
AFTER: The final BruxZir Solid Zirconia Full-Arch Implant Prosthesis restored form, function and quality of life, completing a dramatic oral reconstruction for a patient who had terminal dentition.

“I believe monolithic zirconia is one of the most significant advancements in implant prosthetics. Glidewell is at the forefront of this technology. There is an easy-to-understand, set protocol for doctors to follow. With the BruxZir Implant Prosthesis, Glidewell has simplified the process.”
“Acrylic hybrid dentures all have a common problem: They eventually break. Now, instead of repairing the hybrids, I’m replacing them with BruxZir full-arch restorations. It’s worth it to know I’m providing a long-lasting solution and I won’t be seeing the patient come in with a broken prosthesis.”
