Full Arch Zirconia Implant Bridge Is Finally in Chicago

Full arch zirconia implant bridge is far superior to the traditional full arch plastic implant bridge. It is stronger, stain resistant, and usually have a longer lab warranty.


Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2018 -- Bucktown Dental Associates is proud to offer full arch zirconia implant bridge in Chicago. The full arch zirconia implant bridge, also called a hybrid denture, offers a permanently anchored teeth replacement for edentulous patients. It is far stronger than the traditional plastic full arch implant bridge. Therefore, it can withstand the significant stresses of chewing. Zirconia offers better aesthetic outcome and is resistant to staining.

In general, a full arch implant bridge is more secure and far more stable than removable dentures. They are also more stable than implant dentures. Implant dentures are removable dentures that anchors to implants but can be removed by the patient. In contrast, a hybrid denture is permanently secured to 5 or 6 dental implants and can only be removed by a dentist.

"Zirconia is a porcelain type material; therefore, is biocompatible and does not cause allergy," says Dr. Yasser Elseweifi. Because it is porcelain, it can be made to look as lifelike as natural teeth. The full arch zirconia implant bridge is made in steps. First, a plastic denture is made. The plastic denture is then scanned, and the zirconia bridge is A is fabricated from the scanned image by CAD/CAM machines. The digital processing and CAD/CAM technology provide much better fit than an implant denture or traditional plastic hybrid dentures.

Because of the structural toughness of a full arch zirconia implant bridge, dental laboratories usually offer a five-year warranty for such restorations. In contrast, traditional plastic hybrid denture only have a six-month warranty. However, expect to pay few thousand dollars more for a zirconia bridge. The extra cost usually covers the laboratory fees.
