Trends in Implant Dentistry – BruxZir® Full-Arch Implant Prosthesis Outpaces Screw-Retained Hybrid Denture

Volume 7, Issue 2

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Conical Implant Connections

Volume 6, Issue 4

A look at custom abutment prescriptions indicates that implants with a conical prosthetic connection are increasingly popular, as are implants with a tapered internal hex connection. Factors driving this trend include greater stability and the perception that conical internal connections offer a smaller micro-gap.1 Amid studies suggesting that conical prosthetic connections facilitate superior preservation of […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Digital Impressions

Volume 6, Issue 3

Taking an intraoral scan enables a digital workflow that produces an extremely accurate restoration for the patient while saving the clinician time and money. Intraoral scanners eliminate both traditional impression material and the plastic tray from the impression-taking process, resulting in a faster, more comfortable patient experience. The patient’s information is submitted electronically, eliminating the […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Inclusive® Titanium Custom Abutments

Volume 6, Issue 2

The advantages of custom abutments, which establish the ideal gingival margins and emergence profile needed for a predictable and esthetic outcome, are becoming increasingly well-known among restorative doctors. Designed with precision using dental CAD software, the cervical portion of the custom abutment is contoured to conform precisely to the shape of the patient’s sulcus, facilitating […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: BioTemps® Implant Restorations

Volume 6, Issue 1

With more clinicians recognizing the benefits of provisionalization, prescriptions for BioTemps® implant restorations are on the rise. Provided sufficient primary stability, temporization serves to guide implant cases toward an ideal restorative outcome. In addition to providing the patient with an esthetic crown for the duration of healing, BioTemps implant restorations help preserve the patient’s soft-tissue […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Full-Arch Restorations Over Multi-Unit Abutments

Volume 5, Issue 3

Multi-unit abutments help to simplify full-arch prosthetic reconstructions by correcting for variable angulation and height among implants, avoiding screw access holes that are too far to the facial, and accommodating tissue thickness or limited interocclusal space. This allows for clinical flexibility by establishing a common restorative platform above the tissue. The popularity of multi-unit abutments […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: BruxZir® Screw-Retained Crowns

Volume 5, Issue 2

Screw-retained crowns offer advantages in several clinical situations, including those where easy retrievability of the restoration is needed, limited interocclusal clearance is a factor, or residual cement is a concern. As a monolithic material with exceptional durability and lifelike esthetics, BruxZir® Solid Zirconia is an optimal and increasingly popular choice for screw-retained restorations, with prescriptions […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: BruxZir® Full-Arch Implant Prosthesis

Volume 5, Issue 1

While fixed implant-supported dentures have offered the ultimate in prosthetic stability for many years, the susceptibility of acrylic to chipping, wear and fracture has left edentulous patients desiring a more enduring solution. With the introduction of a full-arch implant prosthesis made exclusively from BruxZir® Solid Zirconia (Glidewell Laboratories; Newport Beach, Calif.), edentulous patients at last […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Conical Implant Connections

Volume 4, Issue 4

Conical Implant Connections Over the past four years, sales of Inclusive® Titanium Custom Abutments (Glidewell Laboratories; Newport Beach, Calif.) have indicated a pronounced shift in market preference toward implant systems featuring a conical abutment connection. Since 2012, abutments for these systems have constituted a majority of total units sold while abutments with nonconical connections have […]

Trends in Implant Dentistry: Model-Less Restorations

Volume 4, Issue 2

Growing ranks of clinicians are using chairside digital impression systems to save money and time on their restorations. They benefit from working with a fully integrated digital dental lab that can produce restorations entirely from a digital impression — without a physical model. Ease of use and accuracy make digital impressions a superior option for […]
